How do you register a foal with AQHA?

I may be buying a registered mare with a foal at side, the dam and sire are both registered. I'm sure this is a stupid question, but I have no idea how to go about registering the foal?? Haha! Anyone want to tell me how?

Well, hopefully since the foal is on the ground the previous owner will reg him and all you have to do is the transfer. If not, then you need the breeding papers that show when/how the mare was bred, to what stallion and either the stallion owner's signature for the service or a service certificate if they require one at AQHA. Once all the paperwork is filled out, then you just send it in with a check for your membership & the registration fees.

Is this the same mare that you posted about earlier? The more I hear about this situation the more I worry about things.. Are you an AQHA member? Any experience with foals? Will you be getting the foal with the mare? This is just turning into an odd situation.. Before you are even able to register the foal you'll have to join AQHA, pay to transfer the mare to your name, then pay all of the fees to have the foal registered and put in your name..Not including all of the money it's going to take to raise and take care of the foal, and the extra care the mare needs while having a foal at her side...It's a LOT of work for a beginner to jump into..

I have experience with foals, just not registered ones. I understand the expenses and time that goes into a foal. The foal is only a month old. And I will have the money to take care of them both, and register the foal I'm sure.

You won't be able to do a whole lot of training with the mare while she has the foal at her side..Like the barrel racing you're wanting to get into.

I completley understand that. For sure! In the meantime, I think I'll take lessons on my friend's completley finished horse. So I get my own skills down, then when I'm good it will be time for her to work on it. Does that sound ok? Oh and her price, it's near impossible to find hay around here. Especially for as many horses as she has.

Honestly, I think you're trying to find reasons to like this mare..You've posted in your other thread that you can pay a good bit more than the asking price for this mare..You have to realize when buying that you need to buy what's best for you and your needs..Not just what you like or think will work...It may be a disaster and then you're stuck with a horse you don't get along with..Don't let your friend or anything cloud your judgement.

Well, I have always loved this mare. Even before she was for sale, and I'm pretty happy she's become available. She IS a mare, but I've never had her act marish around me. I love her color, and temperment, and have always wanted something taller. I CAN spend more, but seeing as how someone else is loaning me the money I'd rather keep it down if I can. I wanted to do barrels yes, but I'm content with waiting a while too.

I'm not sure..I would just take it slow and you're doing good by getting other's opinions..Besides just your friend's.. Take your trainer with you, your friend could possibly be just trying to sale you the mare..There's no telling..Just don't try to convince yourself to buy this horse because you like her based on what you've said.. You also have to think about your goals with what you want to do..Buying the mare, you're looking at probably two years before you can start seriously running her.. Just really, really think about it before making a decision. Don't just fall in love with her and stop looking at other horses...I looked for over a year when I bought Nikki, because as many horses as I liked, they just weren't the best fit for me and my needs. You have to think about those factors, buying a horse isn't just something to take lightly..Yes, they are "family" but they are also investments.
