Test to find Sir and Dam?

Hi all.. I'm trying to do some research and find out my horses bloodlines. I have no idea what exact breed he is, or who is mom and dad are. Does anyone know if there are dna tests out there, or ways I can try to find out his background? He's not registered, and he came through an auction before the previous owner had him. I tried calling the auction, but they don't remember him at all.

The best thing you can do is search locally and post pictures. See if you can search the local area for posts with his name and description.

There's not a DNA database for grade horses and if he's registered you'd still have to know his identity to match it up - they won't try to figure out who he is for you. It's not very likely that you'll find out anything though.

A friend of mine had DNA done on her grade rescue horse, but it was just to find out what breed he is.

These tests are remarkable in how inaccurate they are. Other than that, they are worse than useless.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I know nothing of the accuracy of these tests as I've had no need for them. She had it done a couple of years ago and I'm assuming gave her some sort of satisfaction knowing? the breed of her horse. I wouldn't want to burst her bubble that the test may not be accurate, all I know is he's a great horse!
