Thanks. I guess it just seems like a lot to me paying close to $300 to transfer an owner's name, but I understand what you're saying. I'm not against having him DNA tested because I know it's him. It's just really expensive. Of course, this comes at a time when we just paid $15,000 for the horse, $2000 (and still counting for tack), $760 pre purchase exam, lessons, boarding, etc... I just wish the fee was more like $40 - $50 like UC Davis charges which incidentally is the lab the registry uses for DNA testing. Gah - I knew horses were expensive, but. . . LOL
Thanks for your advice.
I guess I'm just a bit overwhelmed being a new horse owner LOL.
