Blessi Has a Passport

Blessi, registered name Veigar frá Búðardal, was exported from Iceland to the US in 2003.  Believe it or not, he had to have his own passport.  This 34-page document--written in Icelandic, German, and English--is issued by FEIF (International Federation of Icelandic Horse Associations).  It contains his registration number, microchip number, owner name, pedigree, and detailed physical description.  There are pages for vaccination records, passport control, medication control, and medical treatment.

Every time Blessi is sold, the passport must be returned to the national Icelandic horse organization (USIHC in US) so the passport and certificate of registration can be re-issued in the new owner's name.

So for your viewing pleasure,  here is Blessi's horse passport.
