I agree, and disagree. If its not on paper, in a registry, how can anyone know for sure? People lie? The dam could be "purebred" but never registered. Or she could look like a QH so that's what they claim she is.

I have an unregistered Curly. He's a Grade. I know exactly where his sire and dam came from. I know when he was born. I know the breeder, but he's still Grade and that's what hed be sold as cause I don't have proof to follow what I say.

Honestly, after everything your saying about the breeder, id recommend your friend taking her business elsewhere. Supporting these backyard breeders that don't pay any mind to genetic diseases is dispicable and unwarrented in the business. She could get a nicely bred, registered, already broke horse for $400 if she looks. The economy is bad for horse buying so she's bound to find a deal.

Thanks a TON NdAppy for finding that out for me. Honestly, HYPP is literally non existent in these parts. He's one of the one Quarter Horses around I've seen even go back to Impressive - literally every registered QH in these parts was bred from old Joe Reed stock, especially the Grades or non-show horses. The odds of the mare having HYPP is so unlikely, I think it's worth a $400 gamble to Ashley.

I will, however, be mentioning it to the woman who breeds these guys. She breeds almost totally crossbreds (her sires are all registered QH and Paints but the mares are all Draft/TB/QH mixes with a couple Grade QH's and a couple registered QH's), so I imagine it's just not much of a concern for her anyway.

ClaPorte - We live in Canada, not the US. We're not even in the same BALLPARK as you guys regarding horses. All we HAVE are backyard breeders, including those breeding registered stock. A local barn breeding Warmbloods brags about twins. Only "hoity toity" people call vets for breeding. Nobody knows about frame, nobody knows about genetic disease, nobody cares. We recently had a vet give a free 3 hour presentation on first aid at a local farm and the farm requested opinions on other topics if it occured again - I requested a presentation on responsible breeding, testing, and what to know because NOBODY around here has a CLUE.

We live in Manitoba. The most expensive horse for sale is $10,000 and NOBODY will buy it here. We own cow ponies and crossbreds and have a more redneck equine population then NOVA SCOTIA does. It's ridiculous, but welcome to our life. We manage.

WHAT?! I said people are going to be a LOT more confused when we call her Half QH and then they ask what the sire was and we go "QH" and ask what the dam is and we say "QH". You can call your Curly whatever you feel like. That does not somehow alter the fact that GRADE means unregistered, not "not purebred".

Very similar and quite interesting how they can have such white frosting in the mane and tail! My mare's first colt was a buckskin and he has *some* frosting, but just the outside hairs on his mane really stayed. Very cool!

Nope, trust me, I examined her back myself. There isn't a single hair on her back that's colored any darker then the rest of her body/barrel area.
