Our digital covering certificate
We have replaced the paper covering certificate with a digital covering certificate which is free of charge and generated online. Using their online accounts, the stallion owner and mare owner can agree upon the details of the covering, such as the dates, stallion, and mare involved. When both parties confirm their agreement of the details the digital covering certificate will be generated (serving as an official record of the covering). Where the stallion and mare named on the digital covering certificate is subsequently declared as the sire and dam on our online 'Register Cob' application then the application would therefore say that a digital covering certificate has been generated as the sire and dam verification method.
Option to provide DNA verification
In addition to our online 'Register Cob' application saying that a digital covering certificate has been generated as the sire and dam verification method an option would also be provided on the application to upload an image of a DNA parentage verification document as the preferred sire and dam verification method.
