    What about American Warmblood? I always get confused between the American Warmblood Registry and the American Warmblood Society (if one is considered more respected than the other), but it looks like your horse would be eligible for AWS: Warmbloods | Sport Horses | Dressage Horses

    What about having him microchipped?

    I don't know how it would stand up in court if there was ever a question but I'd think an album or folder with date stamped pictures that have both you and the horse in them would be a good thing too.

    There is/was? A North American Spotted Draft Registry
    Or you could go with PHR

    Sheridan, the spotted draft registry is a closed stud book.

    The pinto draft registry might work. I'll have to check that one and the AWS. Like I said, I'm not necessarily looking for perks of membership or showing or anything, just documented proof (other than pics) that Aires is mine and what his markings are.!

    Just take lots of pictures showing all of his unique markings, lots of pictures with you and him together, keep a file of all of your coggins papers, health certificates, any other vet work you have done. Being able to show a timeline of ownership will be more helpful than being registered. ETA: A record of your board payments will also help, since you said you have no vet paperwork. How do you not even have a coggins on him though??

    Being "registered" really has no effect on whether a horse belongs to one person or another. There are lots of horses who are registered to a person from years ago, but the horse has been sold on without the papers being passed on.

    I would say if you could get the vet out to pull a Coggins test, you would kill two birds with one stone. It doesn't "verify" that he's yours, but it does show that you at least had him to the vet recently under your name, so there is some paper trail linking you to this horse.

    My only other thought would be possibly contacting the local police department and asking them (laying out your concern for the fire and the need to have some sort of documentation that he is indeed yours) what they would consider legal proof that he is your horse other than those things you mentioned you don't have.

    This sounds like a good idea. I've been puzzling over my draft cross...she's just a plain sorrel, so how do you explain to police or who ever the difference between one sorrel horse and the next?!

    I figured microchipping might help, (though who would think to check?) but I guess asking a law enforcement agency what *they* would look for is a good bet!

    He's only ever been three places in his entire life. The farm where he was born in Canada, the barn/boarding stable I bought him from (who rescued him out of Canada), and the barn I have him at now. People in my area tend to be pretty lax about Coggins, unless the horse is traveling a lot to rodeos/shows/etc. When I moved him to the barn we are at now, I asked if he needed to have his Coggins and she said that all he needed was to be UTD on his shots (which he is) and recently dewormed (which he was).

    Asking the PD is a good idea. Hadn't thought of that. I live in a pretty small farming/ranching community, so things are fairly tight-knit, but I'd rather be safe than sorry if something were to happen.

    So sorry to hear you are near the fire. I hope you guys don't have to evacuate.
