WRT the marking. It shouldn't affect him in the show unless it was a breed show where his identity was in question. However I have never seen a breed show check the markings against the papers. If there is any question as to the identity of the horse, the Association has a microchip reader that they will lend out to shows. The chip should be the definitive proof of identity. As you know some white markings result from an injury. At $30 a change, most owners wouldn't bother making the change on the registration papers. I registered our stallion Lucan in the middle of the winter and didn't notice he had a small amount of roan type white hairs on his pastern (thought it was snow). I had to change his papers in the spring. Arrgg. However since we were keeping him as a stallion, I wanted to make sure his papers were correct.

Hi all,
Does anyone know, I came across a Canadian gelding that was registered as having no marking except a small star, but when I looked at him I noticed he definately had a small white spot on his coronet band too. Would this affect him in any way if her were to be shown?
Just wondering...

Hi! We have been breeding Canadian Horses for about 3 years now and absolutley love them! You can see some of ours for sale through the links at the bottom of the home page at I will post some video soon of our babies, and of first training to walk - as well as a preview of training our stallion to ride (in an hour - bitless of course.) These are wonderful calm exceptionally friendly horses! Zoe

Hi, As a Canadian, I would be very interested to know how the Canadian horse breed came about. Who were the ancestors and how old is the breed? What were the breeding goals?
Comment by Hawk Hill on June 4, 2008 at 9:26pm
We have had Canadians for 8 years. I guess I can start a discussion about the breed.

Sounds interesting. The horse is very beautiful. Maybe you should do a discussion or blog explaining all about this breed.
