The Blup is normal-distributed with an average at , i. What BLUP is, is a prediction of the breeding potential of the individual, that is, if you breed the horse, how likely is it that the horse will improve the offspring, or make an offspring of a lesser quality. A horse has a Blup for many characters.
The blup is calculated for all the characters that are evaluated, and for the main score. If you have a horse, where the available information about the character A is over average, then that horse gets over average in Blup for the character A. Virtually all evaluation scores of all known relatives are used. Takes BIG computers to do it. Individual horses can be evaluated many times.
If it takes many tries to get one good average evaluation then people tend to think there is something wrong with the horse. A Blup is based on the relatives of the horse, and evaluations of the horse itself. If a horse for example has 10 evaluated relatives that all have a pretty head, it has a high BLUP for head that is, it is likely to have a pretty head. If the horse is then evaluated, and there the score for head is low that is the head prooves to be ugly in appearance the BLUP gets much lower.
