To decrease the chances of producing genetically defective horses, certain breeds or lines will be required to obtain DNA testing to rule out specific genetic defects to clear them of being carriers of genetic defects before their offspring will become eligible for registration. Geldings and offspring from parents testing N/N are exempt from this testing. The breeds and lines included are:
• 'Impressive' Descendents: DNA tested for Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis Disease (HYPP). Offspring of a HYPP positive parent will not be eligible for registration. Offpring of untested parents that have the bloodlines of 'Impressive' in their pedigree will not be registered. DNA test is accomplished with hair samples, test fee is $50 through UC Davis. Email for form and/or further information.
• Arabians: DNA tested for Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) - only if both parents have Arabian blood. Offspring of positive carriers of this mutant gene will not be eligible for registration. Offpring of untested Arabian parents will not be registered until proven not to be a carrier of SCID. DNA test is done by cheek swab, cost is $140.00 through VetGen. Email for form and/or further information.
• Paints/Pintos: Iberian WB stallions at stud that are overo Paint/Pinto should DNA test negative for Lethal White Syndrome before breeding to overo mares. DNA test is accomplished with hair samples, test fee is $55 through UC Davis. Email for form or further information.
We do not start any of the registration stud book entry until the registry has received all the necessary documents and all fees are paid, after that please allow 6-8 weeks for completion.
