FHANA Adopts New Policy

March 21, 2018

That policy is as follows, All new ster mares will be tested at the completion of the 2018 inspections. The fee for the testing is $60 and will be billed to each member and must be paid before your papers are returned. Starting in 2019-All breeding stock will be tested to determine their carrier status for Hydrocephalus and Dwarfmism, if it hasn't been tested already. You will receive an invoice from FHANA for the fee when you register your foal. If both sire and dam are negative, then testing of the offspring is not required. FHANA would still encourage members to have their mares voluntarily tested
