If you had an idea of the mare's registered name & the name of the ranch, I could try to look her up using my APHA plus account. A photo of her left side would help with that, but the search can only be done with registered name.
As far as registering the 3yo colt.
1st you would need the mare transferred to you, effective before the dialing date.
If you can't get the mare's papers transferred, you would need the mare's owner of record to sign a transfer.
2nd the stallion owner needs to file a breeding report
3rd you will have to get DNA profiles of sire, dam and foal
4th you will have to pay all of the fees
You may not be able to get APHA papers because of the costs and other people involved, but it is definitely worth a try! Call APHA and see what they can do to help you.
Alternatively, you can get PtHA papers for much cheaper and the sire & dam don't need to be registered for you to get them.
