He told me she is a spotted chestnut, her left side has more of a pattern then her right.
Thank you for the google search idea. I always seem to use Yahoo search and nothing popped up, so I will head over there now
And yes, the waiting is just THE worst part! HAHA

Ok! So plans have changed! I am waiting to get one of the breeders weanlings until next summer. My husband and I just found out we are pregnant, YAY! (Maybe it will be a girl this time!) haha. So I am going to wait and just transfer the money to a new foal ready to come home a month or two after I give birth. Yay for babies! ;)

Most names include something to denote bloodlines.
You give those enablers of abuse money, you are endorsing vile animal abuse. And that makes you involved in the "politics." On the wrong sided.

not to be mean/rude but why do you "need" to register your horse?

i'm not well versed in the horse world, and my horse & the wife's are purely trail animals so we look for quality of animal instead of what a paper trail states.

You "need" to register the horse so years later if you have a mare and you want to breed there are some that require registration and certification of the mare. You "need" to register the horse so you can have a record of purchase date, age of the horse and sire and dam of the horse incase you ever have to sell the horse, even if it's just a "trail horse". No papers don't make it any better quality, but in the case of some breeds you can trace back and find out if you are taking a risk if you buy that horse. That would be the case of Herda, HYPP or any other genetic defect we have managed to breed into bloodlines. Lot of breeders out there turned their great quality HYPP N/H horses into grades when they couldn't sell them and ran them through auction sales. Anyone could end up with one of those and wouldn't be the wiser.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

No argument about that but if I have bought a horse that happens to have papers -- sorry I WANT those papers

I try to stay out of this TWHBEA vs. NWHA spittin' contest BUT let the lady register her horse where she wants to.

Two of my TWH's have been registered with TWHBEA since Moby Dick Was a Minnow (they're old) and I'm not about to change their registry to a "newly formed" organization simply because I disagree with some of TWHBEA's philosophy. I disagree with the seat belt law but I have to wear the d**n thing anyway. Different ball fields but you get the point unless the entire paragraph isn't being read and absorbed

I have the papers for the third TWH but never transferred them, mostly out of pure laziness. If I do get energetic and decide to send them in, it will be to TWHBEA, where they originated.

If I were to ever buy a horse that was NWHA registered, that's where I would send those papers -plain and simple

They are all geldings and all trail horses. My gelding Arab is also registered.

Why pay for the papers? Because I am interested in lineage. I love to research each horse clear back to the Beginning. If more people took the time to get the papers on their horse (even if you don't transfer them but you paid the Seller for them), it might help you understand some of the reasons your particular horse does what it does. That goes for every breed.

Humans can't know where they're going until they learn where they came from, the same applies to horses to some degree.

I can get as aggravated about somebody not knowing who Maggie Marshall, Allen F-1, Old Glory, and Nell Dement were as some of you can about this "thing" between TWHBEA and NWHA. How many of you know the Chance line is the only blood line that did not carry Midnight Sun in it? I am always amused when people say "oh, my horse has Midnight Sun it". Bless Midnight Sun but his name is like Smith or Jones on TWH papers.

You've got a horse with papers --- LEARN about who and where that horse came from.

I don't support TWHBEA and I stopped going to the Celebration quite a few years ago but that $60 to register a horse is chump change and does very little more than cover the cost of paper work and the time it took for the person to do same.

To the OP congratulations on your baby. If you want something to pass the time during inclement weather and you might be interested in learning where the modern day Walking Horse evolved from,

Walkers West - Tennessee Walking Horse breeders and brokers, world-wide. has the most accurate and largest compilation of Walking Horse history on the Net, to my knowledge.

I'm sure the Grumpy Stiltskins reading this post will surely have something negative to say about Walkers West, but from a TWH genealogy researching point-of-view and interesting historical commentary, it can't be beat, IMHO
