This is starting to sound a lot like the American Quarter Horse registry. Before registration papers are issued for a new foal, a DNA test must be performed and parentage verified. At least all of that DNA testing is less than $100. Also, horses carrying a recessive gene for certain genetic diseases have that noted on their certificate. So, I'm thinking on a child, perhaps the birth certificate would be held until parentage can be verified.
Is this really the way to go?
