    More good points, Kim. I’d add to your list of ten what they’re being fed. This will tell you about possible health concerns (and associated issues that may arise over time) as well as what your costs might be (hard keepers can put a big dent in your wallet). Hair testing (it’s cheap) can also give you a picture of their nutritional balance over time.

      Thanks for pointing that out and is something I agree with also. Feed can make a huge difference in a horses health like it does for us. I hear you about the hard keepers as my Arab has always been one and with him getting old it’s really getting tough. Great tip about the hair testing. Thanks for your comment.

    Two of my horses are grade horses. One of them is a home bred and I don’t have papers on either one of them. I have every one of their coggins papers and vet records going back 15 years for the mare and birth for the home bred. I would imagine that those records would be “proof of ownership” should I ever need it.
