Stocking Star, Strip, Snip Strip Blaze Bald On your application for registration, draw in all white markings just as they appear on your horse.
It is a good idea to get your horse in front of you to be sure you get the drawings accurate, instead of trying to do it from memory.
Outlines of the face and rear legs are printed on the application forms for your guidance in drawing the markings more precisely.
The white leg markings are described as follows: • CORONET – White marking extending no more than one inch above the coronary band. • FETLOCK – White marking above the coronary band to and including the fetlock joint. • SOCK – White marking extending above the top of the fetlock but below the mid point of the cannon. • STOCKING – White marking extending above the mid point of the cannon.
Partial Leg Markings In cases where a marking extends to a designated part of the leg only partially, owners in ﬁlling out an application form should carefully draw the markings in the same location and shape as they occur on the horse.
Body Markings Unusual body markings should be noted in a written description, including color, size, shape and location, to be included with the application form, but draw only white markings! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 Hoof Coronary Band Pastern Fetlock Cannon Hock Gaskin Stiﬂe Thigh Point of Buttock Croup Point 0f Hip Loin Back Withers Neck Throatlatch Occipital Crest (Poll) Forelock Eye Face 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 Nose Muzzle Nostril Chin Cheek Jugular Groove Point of Shoulder Shoulder Pectoral Region Forearm Elbow Carpus (Knee) Cannon Fetlock Joint Pastern Joint Coronary Band Hoof Upper Arm Ribs Flank Chestnut ©V EST Y SORREL In order to include the wide array of facial markings of Tennessee Walking Horses, they will be identiﬁed as follows: • STAR – Any white marking occurring on the horse’s face above the eyeline. • STRIP – Any white marking below the eye line and above the top of the nostrils but within the nasal bones. • BLAZE – Any white marking below the eye line, above the top of the nostrils and extending outside both nasal bone lines. • BALD – Any white marking extending laterally to encompass both eyes, overlapping both nasal bones and covering the face down to the nostrils. • SNIP – Any white marking occurring between the top and bottom of the nostrils. • UPPER LIP – Any white marking below the nostrils but still on the lower lip. • LOWER LIP – Any white marking on the lower lip.

By using blood typing, DNA, and micro-chipping the Association keeps reﬁning the process of identiﬁcation, correct parentage and reproductive expectations.
By carefully thinking about your TWH’s correct base coat color and what dilutions or white coat patterns are working with that coat color you can help future generations of breeders make informed decisions when breeding their TWHs.
The description of an individual horse on the Certiﬁcate of Registration should include the color, face and leg markings, patterns, and dilutions or modiﬁers if there are any present.
Any scars, swirls, tattoos or other identifying marks should also be included.
It is very important that any information that is provided be as accurate as possible.
Please remember that the Registry can not guess the color of the horse being registered.
The Registry will return any registration application with incomplete color information.
This will cause a delay in processing.
One of the basic purposes of TWHBEASM is to protect and maintain the purity of the breed.
