Ok, quick question for you breeders out there. A friend of mine is looking at possibly purchasing a young welsh pony ( weanling) and when she spoke to the lady who has it and bred it the lady states that the pony is registered yet he isn't branded and the lady has basically told my friend the pony is ready to go to a new owner now. So my question is, how can he be fully registered if he is a clean skin? I thought most breeders brand then register?? Also I'm pretty sure that SA is same as WA and stock has to be branded before leaving the property. My friend is keen on this pony but maybe Im just abit more wary cos to me it doesn't seem right. Also the lady told my friend the sire is pali but after she looked up its name its listed as chestnut!
