    Going to see a horse with papers still at the registery?

    So I am looking at this quarter horse yearling--technically only 8 months but I round ;P--and the woman as been very polite and nice in our emails back and forth. Today I presented a date for when I could come out and take a look at him and she said it was fine but she wanted to let me know that his papers are still in the registery because they want to DNA test him. According to her this is pretty common with Catt and Hollywood Dunit foals--which he has in his bloodlines--and that she plans to send it out next Monday but if I feel uncomfortable with this then I can wait to come see him until after she gets the papers back, which might even be by the date I posed so it might not even be an issue.
    I have never had any experience with this before and it sounds fine to me but I wanted to make sure which is why I'm posting it here :) is this normal and okay or should it raise a red flag? Also, what is the deal with DNA testing and those specific bloodlines she mentioned?

    Thanks :)

    I wouldnt see a problem with it. Just make sure the papers are in YOUR HANDS before you take him home. I believe the bloodlines (Off the top of my head. Feel free to correct me) can carry Herda. Also I think all foals have to be DNA typed nowadays.

    DNA is proof positive that the colt is who the owner claims it is and the offspring of the parents stated on the registration.

    Oooh, okay! Very interesting. And if he turns out to be a keeper I definitely plan on getting those papers and the horse in the trailer before handing over any money. I've had way to many mishaps with over trusting the horse sellers. On the side of optimism, this seller does seem to be motivated and friendly and I doubt she would have a problem with arranging to wait for the papers to come in before purchase.
    Thanks for the answers!
