We have got important updates about our Connemara Pony foal passports.   Making sure these passports are spot-on is a big deal.

But there's a twist – even with all the new technology, there are some challenges in the world of foal DNA sampling that we've got to talk about. As the council chosen by you, our society members, we are here to update everyone on the hurdles we are all...
