This is probably a dumb question, but I have a 3 1/2 month colt out of a registered Fox Trotter mare and by a registered QH stallion. I have assumed, because he is a cross, he isn't registerable anywhere.
People keep telling me though that he can be registered. For instance the guy that used to own the mare told me that the foal would be registerable in both the QH and Fox Trotter registries (um, I don't think so!), another friend thinks he would be able to be registered with either the Rocky Mountain or Kentucky Mountain saddle horse registries, but I looked those up and they seem pretty strict and won't take a cross like that. Then, another person told me there must be a 1/2 QH registry since there is a 1/2 Arabian registry. Sigh! I keep telling folks I don't think he is registerable.
So who is right, me or them?
IS there any registry that will take a QH/Fox Trotter cross, or can I just tell folks once and for all, they don't know what the heck are talking about?
I love my baby just how he is, and I plan to get him gelded and make him a trail horse someday, but if he WERE registerable, I would probably register him. But I am tired of hearing people tell me to register him when I don't know of a registry that will take him. Thanks!
