FAQs for CLASSIFICATION & REGISTRATION -

HOW DO I REGISTER MY BUCKSKIN?

PROCEDURE FOR SECTION A
All horses registered with the National Buckskin Society must be in inspected by NBS Classifiers. This can be done at our scheduled classification days which are advertised on our website and on facebook. If you would like to present your horse for classification please contact our Classification Coordinator – Lyn Gates on 9775 8090 to confirm you will be attending. If it is not possible for you to bring your horse along to a classification day, a request to have a classifier come to your property will be considered, if we have classifiers located nearby. This will incur a cost for travelling expenses.

Any horses in remote areas will be considered for classification by photo. This needs to be arranged with the NBS Classification Coordinator, so all requirements for photo classification can be provided to you. If there is any doubt to the horses colour, the horse will need to be inspected or DNA tested. Horses will not be classified if photos are of poor quality.

PROCEDURE FOR SECTION B – Cremello, Perlino and Smokey Black.
Same as for Section A horses. Smokey Black horses will require DNA testing. Cremello and Perlino may require DNA testing based on parentage or progeny. This decision will be left to the classifiers discretion.

PROCEDURE FOR SECTION C – Buckskin coloured horses that carry an unacceptable gene. (Pinto, Roan, Spotted, Grey)
Same as for Section A & B. Grey horses may require DNA testing.

This can be done at a scheduled Classification Day or arrangements can be made for an authorized person (NBS Committee member/Classifier, Vet or JP) to come and collect a DNA sample at a time that is convenient for both, by contacting our Classification Coordinator, Lyn Gates on 97758090.

CAN I COLLECT A DNA SAMPLE FROM MY HORSE?
No. All DNA samples must be collected by an NBS Classifier/Committee Member, a Vet (accompanied by a vet certificate or a JP.
