Coggins paperwork

I had my vet out to do coggins on all the guys a few weeks ago and just got my results back. On one of the forms the horse is listed under breed as APHA.

This horse is not APHA he is a paint/belgian mix and not registered in any way. Should I get the vet to fill out a new form just for that or leave as is? I don't know if someone sees that as breed if they will want to see his registration papers (that he does not have) for confirmation? I had an inspector do that once years ago but the horse in question then was registered and I had his papers so it wasn't an issue.

I don't think its a huge deal if the breed isnt 100% correct. If you wanted to get it changes, just call in to your vet and its an easy fix. Im not sure why they would put apha instead of paint though !

It won't matter.As long as the horse has spots,is the correct sex and it "looks" like what they say the breed is, nobody will care. Now, if they listed him as a Shetland Pony and he is a big paint/belgian cross, then they might say something if somebody checks the paperwork.
When we do outfitters horses, which is sometimes 20 at a time, as long as the sex matches, the horse fits the general description of marking, spots, etc most are listed as grade of QH cross..
Not a big deal at all. Not like someone would ask to see his registration papers, even if he is listed as APHA.....

That is the industry standard accepted abbreviation on coggins paperwork.

they vet I work for never does that. I think its ridiculous to use a registry/association abbreviation instead of a breed name. But that's just me I guess.

smokeslastspot, I think if you are unconfortable with your Paint(aka Pinto)/Belgian's desination as being APHA on his Coggins paper you can let your Vet know that the horse is actually a grade horse with no registration certificate. Then let his office take it from there.

If the color and markings match, no one cares if they are registered or not.

I pay attention to the cogginsd paperwork before the blood is drawn. Last year it was raining and the aid, wrote black for color on my bay horse. I didnt notice until I was at a gate getting checked. I was not a happy camper. So the lesson is to look at the form BEFORE, the blood is drawn.
