then I have to ask you this- why has her sister, Sequoia gotten a PREMIUM at an AWR inspection, huh???? She is out a TB mare and the SAME stallion. Seems difficult for me to believe they don't accept draft crosses into their books when she has a brand and papers to prove it
First off horses with 1/4 draft can be accepted. They used to accept 1/2 draft but changed the rules a while ago. Second to get around the draft breeding in some horses they simply put "unknown" and if they happen to look good MARES could get accepted fairly easily.
Just because the 1/2 sister to your horse or even the FULL sister got accepted does not mean the your horse is automatically a WB by default. Even a full brother to an approved Hanovarian cannot claim approval based on what his relatives are. Without inspection/papers you simply have a draft cross....nothing more.
Before I get kicked off this forum for strangling someone, I would just like to say that everyone that comes up to me (including warmblood breeders) and asks me what she is, I tell them 3/4 TB 1/4 Shire. And their response is "oh an Am. WB".
Just because someone has a horse that may move like a WB and does not make it a WB because someone "thinks" it is. It is the mentality of the ignorant that don't know the difference. People like you that insist they have something they don't does not help to educate those that don't know.
I believe the warmblood breeders and the AWS more than a bunch of people on a forum.
So you know who is a WB breeder and have knowledge of AWS/AWR here on this forum? I showed you a way to get your horse accepted at least into the AWS because I have extensive knowledge of this registry and you simply threw the information back in my face.:roll:
Sorry but that's what she's registered with her registries as and it is not false advertising.
So you were mistaken when you previously stated she is NOT registered? Or did you just send in the papers,paid a fee and assumed all is good?
Maybe people sitting on their high horse will say i'm wrong but most people will say that she is an American Warmblood. We checked with both registries early in her 3 year old year and they both said they would take her.
My client just bought a Appy and I am sure they would take it also...but until it gets papers it is simply an appy....nothing more.
So i'm going to laugh this off and go about my business
and will continue to say she is an AWB. Because that's what she is (so says the licensed breeder, so says the AWS/whatever other registry, so says my trainer who has been to Rolex and back)
You keep reversing yourself. First she has papers, now she doesn't and maybe the reason people say draft crosses are WBs is because of the type of "I don't care because she is what I WANT her to be to call her" mentality.
To me you should be enjoying your horse for what it is rather than making it into something "better" or "different"...very sad really.
