Freeze Brand Schedule: Information

Standardbred Canada would like to remind all horsepeople that all foals must be parentage verified by DNA and freeze branded in order to be granted registration. Please contact the identification technician in your area to schedule an appointment.

When presenting your foals for freeze branding, please ensure that they are in controlled area (box stall, chute or trailer) with sufficient lighting and wearing halters before the arrival of the technician. If you schedule an appointment to have the technician identify your foal and cancel at the last minute without good cause, you will be invoiced a flat rate of $50.00 for the expense.

Tous les poulains doivent avoir leur lien de parenté prouvé au moyen de l’ADN et être cryomarqués pour être éligible à l’enregistrement. Nous vous demandons de contacter le technicien d’identification de votre région pour prendre un rendez-vous.

Il est requis que lorsque vos rejetons sont présentés au technicien, ceux-ci doivent être dans un endroit contrôlé (stalle, couloir ou remorque de chevaux), dont l'éclairage est suffisant et que le(s) rejeton(s) porte(nt) un licou. Si vous avez pris un rendez-vous avec le technicien et que vous cancellez à la dernière minute sans raison valable, une somme de 50,00$ vous sera facturé afin de défrayer les coûts.

Documentation Required:
The registration papers are required. If the registration papers are unavailable a faxed computer printout from Standardbred Canada can be sent to the racetrack or farm showing the assigned freeze brand number, age, sex and markings.

The fee is included in the cost of the Canadian Registration. A fee is charged if the horse is registered elsewhere, but identified in Canada. The cost for freeze branding is $65.49 + 8.51(HST) = $74.00

Marking Changes:
Each horse's markings are checked by the Identification Technician and if changes are necessary they will be recorded on the identification report. If the registration papers are available, they are marked with the correct changes and forwarded to the Standardbred Canada office for revision. If the registration is not provided at the time for correction, (unless electronically registered) the cost of marking changes is $10.50 (plus h.s.t.) and a processing fee will be charged in addition to the marking changes fee.

Farm Visits:
The Identification Technician will visit farms that have horses needing permanent identification. Farm visits usually occur from Spring until Fall and can be scheduled by contacting Linda Bedard at Standardbred Canada, (905) 858-3060 ext. 238

Age For Freeze Branding:
Minimum age to freeze brand is one week after birth. (There is no maximum age.)
