I was wondering if it were possible to send in a hair sample to either Animal Genetics or UC Davis or both for a DNA profile in hopes it could possibly find a match that has as well been DNA profiled?
My girl was sold to me with the promiss of a breeders report. After a year now I have yet to acquire this breeders report or any other information to go upon. The beginning story was she was bought from a ranch in Bakersfield California and a granddaughter of Shining Spark. Within the following months I was told they were still waiting to get her breeders report from who they got her from. I continued to press the issue to be told said ranch owner recently passed and the family was fighting over the estate and knew nothing about horses and papers.
I patiently waited a few more months. Pressed the issue once again just to be told the breeders report was not promised. I begged with them for any further information, anything, like the name of the ranch they got her from or a name of a sire or dam, anything. They simply responded with they had no information to give me.
So now I am wondering, is there a possibility of finding a matching DNA profile if the possible sire or dam have been DNA profiled in the past of course?
What are my options?
Thanks for any input.
