Can anyone give me some info on how and or if I need to get Earl's hips "certified". He is registered, and We live in South TX and am looking for any assistance in going about the process. I ran into a female goldie and they inquiered about Earl's hips. I didn't know this certification :help!: is a prerequisite to breeding. Is this standard practice? I have no desire to show Earl or anything so I am not sure if this is even necessary. Help!
