Notice of Suspension

Regretfully the LANA Board announces that Connie Michelletti of Carrousel Farm of Sublimity, Oregon has been suspended because of lack of compliance with registration, DNA and transfers procedures. Despite repeated requests to cure inadequate paperwork (and in many cases no paperwork), third party purchasers have been unable to register their horses. At this point the third party purchasers are notified to pursue other legal remedies until such time as the paperwork and evidence of DNA testing has been provided to the purchasers to register their horses.
