Foal Registration

In order to have a registered Hanoverian foal, both the mare and the stallion have to be registered and approved by the Hanoverian Verband. Only foals by approved stallions will be eligible for registration.

The Abfohlmeldung

After the insemination certificate has been sent to the Verband’s office, they print an “Abfohlmeldung” and send it to the mare owner by mid-April.

When your foal is born, please contact the Verband’s representative for Eastern or Western Canada, to let them know you have a live foal this year. They will advise you when and where you can have your foal registered and branded. At registration they will fill in the date of birth, all markings, colour and sex. The foal must be presented with the Abfohlmeldung which is completed at the time of registration.

DNA Testing

All foals need to be DNA tested. Maiden mares must also be DNA tested in order to confirm parentage for their foals. Samples will be taken at the time of branding.
