Exclamation Pepper-- paper help.

Okay,

Pepper AKA Red Hot Chili Pepper is my two year old Sorrel Arabian mare. I just got her what... say around a week ago.
Completely free from a guy down the road. She is purebred, gorgeous, & well hot tempered.
Long story into why I got her, I shall make it short- the mans wife has MS so she can't work with her.

ANYWHO-
Pepper is not papered, I want to get her papered so I am going to stalk her breeders. The only few things I know are that Pepper has a twin brother, she is purebred, & that Harold's wife knows more (going to try to talk to her tonight).

The reason I want to paper her so that when & if (most likely) I breed her I want the foal to be worth money if I have to sell her, Pony's forbid I Do.

So... I couldn't think of any other place to put this, if there is one I am so sorry. Say where it goes once & let that be the end of it.

What is the whole Reg. Process & what do I need to know to get it all done?

Please & thank you!
-Red

First, Arabians aren't sorrel, they're chestnut. Yes, I know it's a matter of the same color being called something else, but if you ever actually get to the point where you're registering her, sorrel is not a color option for the AHA.

Second, whoever bred her will have to sign off on the registration papers, which means both the mare owner and the stallion owner, if they're not the same person.

Third, both of the mare's parents have to be registered and DNA typed in order for the horse to be registered as a purebred. If her mother wasn't registered/DNA typed and her father was, she can't be registered as a purebred, only as a Half Arabian. The same goes if the dam is registered/DNA typed, but not the stallion.

Fourth, if both parents are registered/DNA typed and you can get the signatures from the breeder(s) on the registration papers, it's going to cost you quite a bit of money to register her as a purebred if the mare is over 2 y/o.

From date of birth to 6 months, registration costs are $125.00

From 6 months to one year, registration costs are $140.00

From one year to 2 years old, registration costs are $215.00

Over 2 years old, registration costs are $375.00

Half Arabian registration fees are less of course, but it's still not inexpensive.

Fifth, since you're not the breeder or owner of the dam, you'll have to send in a Transfer for Eligible but Unregistered Foal with the registration application. That's another $15.00 on top of the registration fee.

Sixth, if the mare is over 2 y/o and the AHA denies her registration for whatever reason, you will not be refunded the fees.

Registering with the AHA isn't as easy as with some of the fly-by-night registries. There are quite a few hoops to jump through, quite a bit of money involved, and you have to prove to their satisfaction that the horse is registerable.

It has always annoyed me that breeders don't bother to register their foals when it's the least expensive option, but always give people false hope and say that the animal 'could' be registered.

Well yeah, I 'could' win the lottery too, but it's unlikely!

Foal
Thanks so much SR!

I wish that breeders would register their foals as well but well some times they just don't.
AHA, wow, talk about hoops.

Thanks so very much!

I will get Pepper registered, not sure if its before she turns three or not but its become a mission.
I'ma have to track down three or four people, all of Pepper's old owners (I think its three), this is going to be a long process.

Thanks again!

You're very welcome.

Good luck in getting your girl registered. I'd rather see them with papers than without, especially purebreds.
