B-Book II Registration Assessment

This form can be used to begin the process of a B-Book II registration. Its purpose is to collect the information needed to determine if a horse can be registered in the B-Book II.

How do I register my B-Book Horse?

What is a B Book II horse?  This registry is intended for all purebred Friesian horses that were bred using Foal Book stallions without the approval of the KFPS.  FHANA does not process registration applications for B-Book II horses.  Members wishing to register such horses must correspond directly with the KFPS in the Netherlands. B-Book horses can be identified by their distinctive Black and White Papers.

How do I know if I am registering a B Book II horse?  The first question we will ask you is “Who is the sire (Father) of the horse you are trying to register?  If the horse is not an approved stallion then chances are he is a foal book stallion.  Approved stallions will have a 3-digit number after their names.  Examples: Wander 352, Nanning 374, or Alert 475.

How do I select a name?  All names need to start with a specific letter coordinated by the year.  To see the specific letters, click here.  Your horse can be named anything you wish, but the name must start with the appropriate letter coordinated by the year.

What are the steps in registering a B Book II horse?

1.     Identify if your horse belongs in this registry

2.     Print off the B Book II registration form

3.     Insert Microchip in the horse being registered

a.      Microchips can be purchased from FHANA for $20 or they can be purchased from your veterinarian.

4.     Pull a DNA sample (Tail Hairs) and tape the sample to an index card.

a.      Identify the horse by name on the index card

5.     Check to see if DNA is needed on the parents

a. You can check with FHANA to see if DNA is on file for both

6.     If DNA is not on file, you will need to pull a sample from either the Dam (Mother) or Sire (Father) or both.

7.     Include the B BookII registration assessment form, DNA samples, and microchips numbers and mail to the address found on page 2 of the registration assessment form.

a. Address: KFPS attention Eveline Van Kooten, Postbus 624, 9200 AP Drachten, The Netherlands

What happens next?  After the KFPS has received the registration documents, they will confirm with you via email.  After the DNA has been processed which normally takes 4-6 weeks to complete, you will receive an invoice from the KFPS to pay for the registration.  This invoice will come via email.  The price for this registration will vary depending on how many DNA samples are required to process for parentage verification.  It will also include a Hydrocephalus & Dwarfism testing fee.  This is required for all Mares.  Payment for your invoice is done directly with the KFPS.  Payments can be made by wire transfer or PayPal.  Checks cannot be used.

When will I receive my Registration Papers?  You will receive your registration papers once your invoice has been paid.  The KFPS will notify FHANA and FHANA will generate and send them to you via standard post.

Please contact the FHANA office if you have questions. [ B Book II Registration ] | [ Example of KFPS Invoice ]
