Very nice looking mare you've got there Her star reminds me of my gal's - kinda a "barely there" type star. Actually I don't even know if she's got one anymore >.> It was only ever like 5 white hairs.
I was 12yrs old when my grandpa unloaded this green broke 4yo Polish Arab mare. She was my 4H project horse as well. Everyone thought he was crazy (he thought he was too), but she's turned out to be one of the best horses I could have asked for. We learned a lot together and she was always fairly patient with me lol. Probably the least "Arab-y" Arabian I've ever come across. She really won me over with the polish breeding.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the DNA testing has to go through the registry, you order the kit, pull the hair send it in and they compare. Your vet wouldn't have anything to compare it to
Info should be on the AHA website.
Today was a great day for little Sophie. She learned to walk down the hill and into the creek AND stood for the farrier to trim her back feet. The trainer is working with her 5-6 days/week and she's coming right along. Today the trainer said to the kids after riding at the lunge, "Now you all need to take her for grass and 'waller' her all over. 13 yr olds are good for that. Sophie's well on her way to 4H horse camp. This summer she'll be a staff horse to get gently desensitized and summer of 2015 plan to have a camper take her to camp. Her trainer is one of the counselors so I think that will work out well. Also learned today if you feed them grain while they're getting shod the horse will calm down A LOT. :)
