BOARD TO ENFORCE NEW STALLION UW Attention of tb owner of stallions aad-Jaeks I alled to the new stallion law which went into effect May 20, 1911. A number of horsemen have not complied with the provisions of this law. It is ' necessary - that all stallion and Jack used for public! service must be licensed by the State Stallion Registration Board at Cor vallls, and that they must be inspect ed by an official Inspector appointed by thla board. Attention is also called to tb fact that, according to thla law, stallions which were In th sUts at the time th law went Into effect and licensed during th first season will be licensed even though unsound, although such unsoundness will be stated in the Hcense. All horses, how ever, which are not used for public service and licensed during tb first season will be refused license and not allowed to stand for public service unless they pass the proper veteri nary inspection. It is very Important therefore, that horsemen who are delinquent In thh matter get in their applications at once. Stallion owners who have Already received licenses for their horses will confer a favor upon their neighbors by calling their attention to thla fact. Horsemen are also urgently re quested not to purchase stallion or Jacks until after they have been in spected by one of the state Inspectors and have received their state license, for otherwise It may prove that suc& stallions or Jacks -may prove unsound and hence not eligible to be used for breeding purposes in this state, or it may be found that tbetr pedigrees are bogus and that they will have to be licensed aa grades or mongrels Instead of pure breds as represented.
