Hello! I am quite new to this site, I think I am posting in the correct board but I'm not entirely sure so please let me know!
My question is this, I bought a gelding, Charlie, this past July and he was grade however I was told he could've been registered. Charlie never got registered because the couple who had him got a divorce and the guy I bought him from never got him registered because his ex-wife took the papers, or something along those lines. I'm wondering if I find out his dam and sire's registered names, can I get him registered with just that? I figure I'll have to send a hair sample in for proof of DNA.
Also my next question, I think the guy I bought him from said he was quarter horse however he defiantly has paint in him. He has a bald face and some white flecks on his stomach. I was told he could've been registered but they never did, so I am assuming both parents were registered or am I incorrect? For a horse to be registered does only one parent need to be registered?
I've heard multiple things about registration so I thought I would ask!
