Question Register APHA Colt?

Hi, I am new here and have a question and hope someone can help. I recently acquired a mare and a colt from my good friends mom. My friend passed away in a riding accident a couple of months ago and her mom wanted me to have the mare. The mare is a registered breeding stock paint and I have her papers but my friend never got her transferred into her name after acquiring her from the sale barn a few years ago. She then bred the mare to Buckley Dun It (I believe he is QH) and the colt was born on 4/10/09.

Now of course we would like to get the colt registered and sold. (He is going to be a looker but I am not interested in having a colt) I would like to get the mare in my name as well. Can someone please give me some info on what I need to do to get him registered. He is buckskin so I believe he should be double registered but is that just something his new owner can take care of if they want? I have always owned TB's in the past and never any foals.

Also my friends mom has been trying to get a hold of the studs owners and so far hasn't had any luck. Any and all info will be appreciated I am out of my element with the APHA registry.

Do you have a signed transfer of ownership from the owner of record for the mare? (whoever's name is currently on the registration papers as the owner is the current owner of record with the APHA.) If so, and the buyer section is blank, you can fill that in with your info, send in the transfer fee (probably a membership fee as well if you are not a current APHA member) and the mare's registration papers, and they send them back in your name. If there is another person filled in on the transfer report, then you will need to get another signed transfer report from them to you.

Here is a transfer of ownership report form--

To register the foal, you will need a registration application. You need to fill in the top part with all of the foal info. You need to take the required color photos of the foal. The stallion owner needs to sign in their portion, the owner of the dam at time of foaling needs to sign in their portion. (that would be you, if you get the transfer for the mare all ready to go, and you can send in the transfer for her along with the foal's registration application all at once.)

Here is a reg. application--

You WILL need to get ahold of the stallion owner to sign the registration application. Hopefully they also have already listed their stallion for breeding with APHA and sent in a stallion breeding report to the APHA with your mare's breeding dates on it-- if not, that will also have to be done (and paid for.)

Here is a stallion listing card and a stallion breeding roport form--
(Both need to be on file for any stallion who is siring APHA foals-- the listing card only gets filed once unless the stallion is sold (then it is updated with the new owner info), the stallion breeding report is filed annually with any APHA mares bred (in the case of an AQHA stallion.)

All of these APHA forms have brief instructions on the left hand side of the form.

Hopefull the stallion's forms/fees are already filed and done. I believe that you can send in and pay for the stallion owner stuff, if they are unwilling to, as long as they sign in all the required places.

If the AQHA stallion has not already been listed with APHA and DNA results from AQHA forwarded to APHA, that would need to be done too, or else a new DNA sample would have to be submitted to APHA.

I believe Buckley Dunnit is a World Champion with the IBHA so getting IBHA registration forms all signed at the same time as the APHA is probably a good idea, since potential IBHA buyers might know and apreociate those bloodlines.

I got the APHA forms from the site-- not sure if the IBHA forms are online? (I have a favorites link to the APHA forms, LOL)

Have you been able to get anywhere?

There was something I read somewhere that stated the registered owner of the horse needed to have a will to make it easier to transfer the horse over -say in your case to the Mother so she can do what she needs to in her name. I doubt that it will be impossible to get the papers transfered, but I bet you will get a headache before it is done.

Best of luck!!

Welcome to the forum :)

My horses have done so well on dac that I became a rep. Stand behind 'em 110%.

Call the APHA registration department to have them help you muddle through all the forms and signatures that are needed. For APHA, you'll also need photographs to get the horse registered. You might run into a road block because the mare is in your friend's name & she's not here anymore to sign the paperwork. The ladies in the APHA office will help you out.

You might also check into an AQHA registration for this colt. And then enroll him in Breeder's Trust and/or Incentive Fund if he's eligible.

You may be able to get the mare transferred into your name by your friend's "guardian" or "power of attorney."

Who ever is legally in charge of your friend's belongings is who has the say in the sale. Of course, you'll have to contact APHA, ABHA, and AQHA to see what their stipulations are, but it shouldn't be too hard. Might be worth selling him without papers and registering him as a pinto?

Thanks, for everyone's replies. I have a call into the mares old owners. I wish we could just forget about the whole thing and register him as Pinto but.....he has no spots, he is a solid buckskin I think I will have to get him breeding stock papers...Unless he could be registered just as a buckskin somehow?????

He should be able to be registered through ABRA - you might check out their website.
