Identification

Canadian horses are identified with the aid of an electronic implant placed under the skin of the neck or by tattooing an identification number inside the lower lip. It is still acceptable and permitted to use tattooing as a means of identification. The identification number, whether by implant or tattoo, must always be recorded on the registration certificate. Implants are available at the CLRC.

You must also register the name of your herd or farm before registering your colt or filly.

The name of the horse you are registering for the first time, will include within it, the name of the herd or farm, the sire, as well as the name you have chosen for the animal. Ex. "Desautels Prince Coco" where "Desautels" is the name of the herd, "Prince" the name of the sire, and Coco the given name of the horse.

For more information on naming your Canadian horse, please select the Horse Name page.

Genotype DNA Testing

DNA stands for deoxyribo neucleic acid. This matter contains the genetic information of an animal. It is its signature, its fingerprint, its personal identification. The genotype DNA test serves to determine parental links, to identify horses and is an important component in the registration of foals and stallions.

Genotype DNA testing is now mandatory for all stallions, whether they are being used for breeding purposes or not. No breeding certificate will be issued without it. The test must be completed BEFORE ANY MARE IS BRED.

Genotype DNA testing is also used to verify identification and lineage during random checks of every 50th registration.

To obtain the necessary supplies and form required for EACH HORSE, write to or telephone the CLRC. A payment of $60.00 PER HORSE must accompany the application form.

After completing the form and taking the samples from the mane, send them directly to MAXXAM Analytics laboratories at:

Maxxam Analytics
4-335 Laird Road
Guelph, ON
N1H 6J3

The laboratory will send the test confirmations for each horse to the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation and to the CHBA. The CLRC will mail the certificate to the breeder.

How to obtain a sample for the test

A sample consists of twenty horse hairs plucked from the mane of the horse to be tested. They may not be cut, but must be pulled out so that the root is intact. The genotype DNA testing is done on the root. The sample must be affixed with adhesive tape to the form sent to you by the CLRC and bearing the horse's name. Only one sample may be sent per envelope.

The results will be available in about four to five weeks.

We are still assembling our beautiful photo bank of Canadian horse photos. Once again we are asking for your co-operation and generosity. Please send us your photos in all disciplines: harness, saddle, halter; photos of your animals in the fields; photos snapped on all types of occasions, and especially those taken in all different seasons. No photo will be refused. In addition, if your photo is retained for the cover page of the journal, we will offer you a half-page of free advertising.
