I need to draw in her markings too. I'm lucky; she doesn't have many. In the last month, as her legs blackened, a white half coronet appeared on her front foot. Because of the snow we had, I noticed that this hoof is parti-colored. Otherwise, she has all black legs and hooves. Her star is another story. Now I know why they shave Arabian foal's heads! What started out as a round feathery plume now appears as an 'f', a running/jumping horse, or a smudge. Sometimes, it's very narrow, sometimes it appears to be fat. With all her thick winter hair, the mark moves around all the time and rearranges slightly. I guess I'll just draw something in. Gosh, I would hate to have to draw the color breeds! I can only imagine what a nightmare Scout would be if I had to draw in all of his spots!Yalla! will need to be DNA typed and I guess I need to have Annie DNA typed too. It says on her papers that she was DNA typed but when I called them about it they couldn't find any record of it.
I'm thinking of getting a microchip in Yalla! Has anyone done this? It is painless and cheap ($25) and it's scannable so that she can be easily identified. However, I would like to know about tracking devices, 'tags', that can be traced. What does anyone know about them? Are they available for horses here in the US? That way, if I ever lose her, she can be found.
