Thanks for the information, is there a site that you know of that has this information or is it just from your knowledge.Lewella said:The gold seal on an ASPC Shetlands papers mean the pony is Foundation Certified. A Foundation Certified pony cannot have any "B" papered ponies in its pedigree for 4 generations not counting the individual itself. That means one more generation than appears on the papers. Ponies with "B" papers have more than 1/8 outcross breeding (Hackney, Welsh, Americana or Harness Show Pony).
To be Foundation Certified a pony must come from two Foundation Certified parents OR have its papers submitted to the ASPC with a $10 fee and have its pedigree researched and certified. If the pony is eligible the ASPC will then affix the gold Foundation Seal and print the ponies Foundation # at the top of the papers.
