I can't see a registry acting on a tattle-tale without a proper investigation. Unfortunately too many owners don't transfer the papers and after a few changes of hands the stories get elaborate.
From NFHR itself.
D. In the interest of protecting the genetic purity and the highest standards of the Norwegian Fjord Horse, the NFHR Registrar will withdraw from the Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry any mare or stallion that is used for crossbreeding with another breed or species. Violators may have their membership suspended and may lose all membership privileges including registration, transfer of horses and any voting rights. The names of horses who have been crossbred and their owners will be placed on the suspended list.
E. The NFHR will not allow registration of any horse produced by cloning, gene splicing or other artificial enhancement or manipulation of the equine genome
