My mini stud has been DNA'd and parent qualified but I am not sure what this exactly means. What has he been DNA'd for?

It just means they have his genetic markers on file at AMHA and the parentage qualified means his DNA matches with the parents. All mares & stallions have to be DNA'd before any foals they produce are registered.

He hasn't been DNA'd for anything and if you look at the report it doesn't tell you anything. Just for future foals to make sure no one tries to register a foal and say this stallion is daddy when he's not.
