AQHA Registration rules before and now

As you all have probable read I was interested in buying a filly whose dad was eligable for his AQHA papers based on old rules. The new rules states that when it reopened the stud books for paints they had be have quart and paint and be born before 2005 to be eligable for their papers dispite their additional white. Now I know some stallion who have the paint markings who have their AQHA papers after fighting now why wouldn't they accept this stallion? He's half qh and half paint and was born in the 90s. This filly is solid breeding stock and would love to try to get her AQHA papers but it would be possible unles her sire is accepted. Can someone get me articles about the old requirements and the new ones? My cell can't upload those kinds of things. Please? I'm thinking about talking to AQHA to make sure they even tried for it.

If I had to guess (don't know for sure) his paint lines do not all go back to AQHA or JC registered horses. There are non thoroughbred and quarter horse lines in paints, that is where the tobiano comes from. If you looked up his paint lineage and it goes back to any tobiano pattern, he has non quarter and thoroughbred blood. My understanding is that the paints who are getting registered with AQHA, are able to because if it wasn't for the excessive with in their lineage, they would have been registered with AQHA. So the pure crop outs, bred to other crop outs, and so on and so forth can now be registered as though the undesirable white rule didn't exist. At least that is my understanding.

I just looked him up on allbreedpedigree and looked at his dam. I looked heavily too. If you follow his dam's lines to the next page it shows a bunch of crop outs. There are no two paints breeding together meaning paint to qh only. And its crop outs. Can someone one verify it on that website as to what I'm seeing? The next page will be I think Painted Breeze's the dam's name: Ratch A Tat Tat.

Well after hours of researching and getting advice I have a verdict. All apha horses are registered with aqha and is resulted from a crop out. The only horse needing to be registered witjh aqha is his dam and a breeding report on her as we'll. Yay!

I posted on your other thread about this. I'll just quote myself to here -

Anything with any kind of Tobiano or unknown/never would have had AQHA papers in the first place are not eligible to get back registered AQHA papers. It is not cheap and is a major headache. This though, is the reason there are dual registered AQHA/APHA horses out there.

His breeding does consist of nothing but AQHA or cropout AQHA/their offspring. Mc Zippos Ratchett Paint

Is he eligible for AQHA papers? Probably. Is it likely he can get them? Lets just say I am not going to hold my breath. It would take a tremendous amount of work, money and time, as well as be a massive headache.

Also keep in mind that you MUST be able to prove through DNA typing that they are actually AQHA horses. Like take Miss White Trash. Crop out QH. She produces quite a few foals all APHA reg. By the time that AQHA change their rules she was dead. IF she was not as well knows as she was AQHA would never have given her AQHA papers and non of her foals would have been eligable to be reg. AQHA. SO this is where some of the problems will come into play when trying to get APHA horses who may have a line of crop out QH to get their AQHA papers. If the crop out is fare enough back AQHA may not do it as there is no DNA or proof of the QH to QH breeding.
