Before creating my own RDF vocab adhoc for this I figured I'd ask the experts to see if there's something already established out there I should be using.

Looking to express pedigrees I.e. Ancestry data. So parent_of, child_of, mate_of ancestry type predicates and / or animal specific definitions.

The relationship ontology has a relation parentOf but it is clearly made for people, not animals. Indeed, it is a sub-property of foaf:knows which has domain and range foaf:Person. This is the closest I can think of. Have you tried search engines or ontology repositories?

Yeah I've been looking around for a while now. Doesn't seem to be much of anything, at least nothing very popular or it wouldn't be so hard to find ;). No biggy. I just figured it would be a good idea to post here in case someone knew one offhand before I re-invent anything. I can always swap namespaces down the road if a good authoritative one pops up.
