DNA Testing

DNA testing is required for all presently licensed stallions still alive and breeding, all stallions being newly licensed for breeding, and all breeding mares. Also requiring DNA testing are all overage registrations, and foals applying for registration as follows: all fillies, all shipped semen AI foals (except geldings unless the result of frozen semen) and any other horses regardless of sex or age that owners choose to DNA voluntarily. Haflingers being presented for Inspection & Classification (I&C) must be DNA tested and a copy of the DNA test results sent with their I&C application form prior to the inspection.

DNA Testing Fees:
Members – $35
Non-Members – $100

Change in procedure for DNA Testing, effective January, 2020! Send a completed application for registration including stallion breeder’s certificate and photo of the foal with a completed written description including color and markings of animal to the office.

Office will respond with an application including the ID number for submitting hair for DNA testing to UC Davis. It is the owner’s responsibility to collect and mail hair samples to UC Davis lab.
