Question Appaloosa pedigree/papers question

so i'm looking at my mare's registration paper and i'm wondering if someone can tell me what a "T" before the number means? there is a QH on her paper and it says "AQHA - #" so i'm pretty sure the T doesn't mean that and it can't me Thoroughbred as you can't register a TB from a QH breeding. :/ does anybody know? thanks! :)

Hope this helps...

A. Prior to 1983, horses were registered as Regular (#), Tentative (T), Breeding
Stock in a Tentative (BT), Permanent (B#) or Non-characteristic (BN) category,
Identification System (ID), or Pedigree Certificate (PC).
B. Tentative (T) registration was the registration category assigned to Appaloosas
that met registration requirements, but did not have both sire and dam
registered in the Permanent or Foundation stock. If the sire and/or dam were
registered Tentative, registered with an approved breed association, Identified
(ID) or Pedigree Certificate (PC) registered, Tentative Registration was issued.
A T precedes the registration number.
1. When a Tentative registered horse passes to Permanent, the T prefix is
dropped and the number remains the same. Prior to January 1, 1983, in
order for a horse to have been directly registered in the Permanent registry, it
must be sired by and have been out of Permanent numbered and/or Foundation
registered parents.
2. Registration numbers with no prefix, or with a pound sign (#) indicate
Permanent registration. Permanent registration was earned by mares that
produced three Regularly registered foals and by stallions that sired twelve
Regularly registered foals.
