I can't give you that answer, but I'm sure someone else can explain it to you. This is what I have found from "Lewella"

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.

Lewella - who has 17 Foundation Certified Shetlands

[SIZE=14pt]Gold Seal is a registry that Grady whitlock created for his herd and their offspring when he got fed up with the real registries . It isnt the same as foundation Seal at all. All the seals on the papers are gold colored but have nothing to do with Gold Seal.[/SIZE]

Thanks for the answer.
I knew there was a 'gold' seal on Sparky's papers, but never heard that being a 'specific' in saying they were foundation registered, so I was wondering if that were a special designation or something. LOL Sorry for the ignorance. I'll get it sooner or later.
