CPI - Certified Parentage Identification Rules

(changed ruling as of Jan. 1, 2015)

This was established specifically for recognizing the "solid" colored equine resulting from breedings of two (2) spotted parents.

With certification (called in layman's terms>> "Hardship Clause", this will show that the particular equine is from spotted hereitage and can be used for breedings in producing spotted foals or for justification to the equine's background for future referencing.
