Arrow How do I apply for an affix??

My husband and I have invested in our first (of many more to come) mare for the purpose of breeding. The baby from this breeding will be branded RPSI (Reinlander). We plan on having our own facility within the next 10 years and would like to promote our horses by adding an affix to every foals name. What do we need to do to apply for an affix?

Do you mean like a prefix or suffix or initials in a horse's registered name?

Unless Canada has some specific "national" rules regarding registering farm prefixes/suffixes/initials/names etc., it would be up to the breed organization with which you register how they handle it. Some registries allow for reservation of a prefix (etc) for a particular farm/breeder only. Other registries do not-- anyone can use whatever legal allowable name, as long as it is not already taken-- "first come first serve". (although most breeders avoid using a name that would confuse their horses with any other farms'/breeders' produce-- they want something unique and identifiable.)

I can't find anything regarding registering/reserving a farm name with RPSI. Your best bet would be to contact them directly and ask. I did find an archived discussion which might be interesting-- seems like reserved prefixes are more common in some pony breeds, and that the changing or replacing/dropping of prefixes is a concern.

Thank you so much Laura! You were most helpful. Yes, I do believe I mean a prefix or suffix! I feel like such a newbie to all of this breeding terminology! I'll look into it more. Any other advice you can offer would be most invited. Thanks again!
