Here is what the e-mail said:
"Dannielle -------/ Jennifer,
No matches were found in our
database for this horse, Lady,
Another e-mail contained the actual results, which were null. The results page had a list of Genetic Markers, but they may as well have been in Chinese. See a partial example below:
and so on and so forth.....what in the hibbidyjibbidy?
I have to say I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to finding out more about Lady and where she came from. They only did a Quarter Horse database search for her, so maybe she's a breeding stock paint or an Appy with no markings? At $40.00 a test, I don't know that it would be worth finding out....maybe she's the worlds beefiest T-bred - lol - no, she's definitely not a T-bred!
After I received the results, I inquired back about whether it would be possible or not to locate her sire and dam based on genetic testing. The response stated that it would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Also, that it would be something that the AQHA would need to approve as it would be a privacy matter. I guess that's out of the question; I bet the UC gets a lot of desperate requests of horse owners wanting to know just who their horse is.
Knowing (or not knowing) where Lady came from is inconsequential. We know that she is a beautiful mare with a lot of athletic ability. She's got a great personality and makes my mom very happy. What more could a person want with a horse? A piece of paper really isn't that important!
Who are you Lady?
Darn it, though. I really wanted to know her breeding!
