Not much to that. Then all the mare owner has to do is fill in the date of foaling names they would like color and markings a few pictures and sing and send in. Not sure how much easier that can be and the cost is not at all bad. What $25.
If the foal was by shipped semen or an ET then you need DNA but again not hard. Not even that expensive.
Can not speak for APHA as I do not breed paints.
CAHR, all the owner does it fill out the application with the sire and ****, fill it in, get a DNA test, send it back.
There's no stallion report, no need for signatures from the stallion owner, plus the DNA is done right from the get go, you don't have to pay for it later if you plan on breeding AND you know what you're getting (I've seen lots of QH's with papers that were wrong/not theirs).
Doing the DNA test WITH the foal application cuts out the need for stallion reports, signatures, and cost later. Just seems much simpler.
