Making an ID sheet?

I don't have registration papers for Carolina, but I'm feeling a bit nervous about the upcoming move. I took pictures of each side of her plus front and rear, plus of any noticeable scarring.

I've made a sheet up with my name, contact number, plus her DOB, colouring, breed, height, and a pic of each side. Called it "Equine Identification Sheet."

I'm going to put that in the packet with the transporter's copy of her vet records, plus the packet to go to the new barn owner, plus a copy to keep with my paperwork.

Does this seem like a good idea or is it overkill?

It sounds like a great idea to me. You can never be to careful and you can never have too much documentation. If you want to be extra careful, maybe get one of those disposable Polaroids and take pics of her on the day she's picked up and include in the packet, along with keeping your own copy. That way you'll have proof of the condition she was in when she was picked up, just in case, god forbid, something happens and you need to make a claim.

I keep a couple of pics in an envelope with copies of my horses' current vet records behind the seat of the truck all the time, just in case (Maybe I'm paranoid, lol). I also include one photo of me and my horse together, and a copy of my original sales reciept. Its just one extra piece of evidence that I'm the owner if it comes down to it. My horse doesn't have any registry papers, either, so I like to have some clear evidence that I'm the owner, but, again, I tend to be paranoid about stuff like that.
