hi, Im not sure if this will help any of you but I came across it in my attempt to find out Streusels history before he was imported. The site www.europetnet.com/ will do a search on the microchip number of all the member country/company listings. If they do not have the details of your horse/pet then they will send them to the manufacturer of the chip (which I am finding impossible to identify) to try to identify where it was registered. I am waiting for them to get back to me so I cant confirm how useful it is just yet but will update as soon as I hear.
Ohh...... this is a thread for heatherL* shes is spot on at this kinder thing! We bought a " 2yr old irish sport horse" last july & when vet came to start her jabs scanned her as matter of course & found she had chip! not only that but it was Dutch??!! (we almost fainted) Anyway she (heather bought her) managed to trace chip (i had tried & failed) turned out she was a Hackney (ok ok should have noticed gait i know call ourselves "Pro's" :-[) but from fab breeding & not only that but she was 3 & 3months!! Hmmm someone had told PORKYS! Has turned out in end as Bella is a fab horse & we now know history!
haha if only we were so lucky! Streusel was imported from Germany, should be easy I thought, except that his microchip number is not a german one it turns out!! The prefix on it is identical to Lyrics and hers was done in Belgium so I suspect we will never trace his true history!! BUT I will keep trying, dog and bone come to mind!! All the german studbook people hate me Im sure for wasting their time!
Thanks for this - Flynn's fieldmate is chipped and he apparently came over from Ireland - but his age is questionable and his education not much!! I'll pass this on to his owners and they can try and trace him!
