The original lease paper filed with the AQHA had a 2010 end date. Last week, our friends got a copy of leases papers from the AQHA stating 2009 end date. That is when they contacted the AQHA. The had contacted the AQHA last November when they were having ongoing problems with the mare owner. Our friends said in the last week conversation with AQHA, that someone(from AQHA) had not "flagged" the November concern. Last week they than contacted the AQHA when they received the lease copy with their forged signatures.
And is there a copy of the original lease floating around with the 2010 date that was originally specified that can be used to compare date and signatures?
The suspicion would appear that somone in the know at AQHA changed it. And then this brings up the obvious question....who actually had possession of the original papers with the 2010 date on it that SENT them in to the AQHA?
