Can a mini be genetically tested to see if he was once registered with the AMHA? Am I understanding correctly that after a certain year (1996?) all minis had to be tested in order to be registered?
Thanks.

I think the only way they can do that is if you have the horse's name or both parents, so they have something to test against. As far as I know, they can't just feed DNA info into a computer and have a name pop out, it's not that advanced, yet.

Morgans can DNA and identify a previously registered horse and I believe some other breeds can do the same. I doubt AMHA has that capability, just because foals do not get DNA tested at time of registration (unless that is a relatively new requirement?) A horse has to be DNA'd before its offspring can be registeted but a horse not used for breeding probably will not have DNA in file.

Good luck with that!  I've always felt it was important to keep the horses' papers.  Some people couldn't care less, and then a nice line falls in the crack.
