But a Quarab is not recognized by Quarter Horse associations as a type.

Quarabs, in my book, are still, like many of the designer dog breeds, a "grade" horse...given a 'fancy name'. My horse is a Quarter\Arab, but I do not consider him a Quarab, I call him a QH cross, or Arab Cross... JMHO... You get alot of variation in crossbred horses, so unless they are the result of generations of breeding, and not just 1-3rd generation breds, I do not think they should have a breed name given to them quite yet.

As many people have said pure bred QHs and Appendix QHs are the only ones that can be registered with AQHA. The appendix QHs usually have a X in the front of there registrarion number as well as yellow registration papers. A QH can have one parent an appendix and another a TB and it still can be registered with AQHA so the horse doesnt have to be 50/50 to be registered.

Here, here! I have no issues using the "designer" names, often mostly because it's an easier time saying "Quarab" as opposed to "Quarter Horse cross Arab" but I AM getting annoyed at all these crossbreeds who have to have their own registry. It annoys me mostly because people don't seem to have any pride in crossbreeds anymore, so rather then admiting they own a crossbreed, they have to not only invent a name for it, but also an entire registry just so they can tack on "registered" in front of the dang breed.

I mean, we already HAVE a Half-Arabian registry, so why on earth does every single Arab cross suddenly need it's own registry?

Haha, sorry, I totally diverted from Quarter Horses there, just wanted to throw in my two cents!

>>>> If you're asking about color, AQHA recocgnizes almost every color (more recently cremello) but only allows white on the legs and face, any more than that and the horse is unable to be registered.

AQHA changed their white restrictions a few years ago-- now horses from registered parentage can be registered AQHA no matter what type of white markings they have or where those markings occur.

>>>>> The appendix QHs usually have a X in the front of there registrarion number as well as yellow registration papers. A QH can have one parent an appendix and another a TB and it still can be registered with AQHA so the horse doesnt have to be 50/50 to be registered.

Appendix registered QHs do always have the X prefix and a different colored registration certificate. However, you cannot register a foal from an Appendix QH x Thoroughbred with AQHA-- Appendix QHs must be bred to a fully regular papered AQHA mate for the foal to be AQHA eligible.

HOWEVER- an Appendix registered QH can be advanced to full/regular AQHA registration after earning a Register of Merit (ROM).... THEN, once issued the regular white registration cert. without the X prefix, that horse could be bred back out to a TB for an AQHA eligible foal.

What I was gonna say...well said. I just learned about this recently when I got an appendix quarter. Unless the appendix has "earned" its place in the permanent stud book through multiple means, it cannot have a foal registered with the AQHA unless it's by a full AQHA parent. My mare is only 1/4 thoroughbred and can only be bred to an AQHA if I want the foal to be registered.

Maybe pictures of the types would help?

Like I said, my mare is 1/4 thoroughbred and 3/4 quarter. I will post a pic of her (sorry I don't have better! lol, please ignore the fact that she's out of shape and has fly spray marks all over her coat ). Maybe someone could post an appendix that is 1/2 thoroughbred, and one that is foundation bred? Just a thought...
