    I would say that unless you have DNA verified the mare for yourself (or have known the mare since birth) DB that you don't have the mare that papers state you do...

    NDAppy I am certain it is the correct mare. I have the DNA verification and I have talked to the breeder. Like I said most old time QH breeders frown on excessive white and the breeder is now 78 years old.
    She is now 13 so that is about the time the AQHA changed the rules about white. Shalom

    Um - could there have been a fence jumper in there somewhere? If the registerd sire is absolutely red as is the registered dam, by process of elimination doesn't that mean that maybe there was some unrecorded hanky panky? I have know quite a few stallions who managed to be someplace they weren't supposed to be... hehehehe

    I'm not sure about 13 years ago but I am positive in the past 10 years or so that when registering a foal the owner had to send in four pictures, conformation shots, when registering the horse..AQHA also checks the markings and the little "horse" coloring sheet that you fill in when you send in the registry form. I highly doubt AQHA would mess up and let the white markings differ much at all from the actual horse and the sheet the owner fills out..

    I'll call tomorrow to make sure..

    Allow me to clarify. The white markings on the registration papers stop at just below the knee. The white markings on the mares forelegs come to mid knee on both legs. The white is only about 2 inchesto 3 inches difference.
    This is not my first QH and my family has bred them for over 50 years, It is the same mare.
    Thanks for worrying but I assure you I am not. Shalom
