Oh, duh. LOL
What about transfer fees? They dock you for that, too, with CAHR. I think you've got three months, then it goes up. Then it goes up again after six months. That's what I MEANT to say up there. ^^

I agree with the others. Just pretend L was not in the middle and you were slow to transfer.

Another phone call you can make is to the registry and see what they have to say.

I included a letter when I sent in registration papers a year after we bought the horse, just saying didn't have the time to send it in, etc. I don't believe there are any extra penalties if you're late sending it in. Only penalties if the original registration was late to be sent in - breeders papers.

Exactly. I had the same thing when I bought my paint. There was a signature of the registered owner on the back. I filled in my info, sent in the fee and received and updated reg certificate.

Don't go making things more complicated that you need to.

I was also told to wait six months before registering, just in case the horse didn't work out. I was told it is not a good thing to have too many short term owners on a certificate - makes the horse look bad. That and the cost may be why some people skip registration. Honestly, I don't see the point of registration for a gelding/non-breeding stock. I just did it to have the fancy "paper." :)

Actually, if it's a horse that is showing, etc....then it's a way to keep track of it's points. If it is a horse that does well, then it's points also add to the value of his sire and dam and show that they pass on good performance properties.

You are correct. The registration fee only goes up with age if the horse has never been registered.

Although the APHA frowns on open transfers, everyone does it, and there should be no problem using the already signed transfer paper that you have. Here is the official APHA statement...

APHA will not process a transfer if it is known that owners existed between the present owner and the owner of record according to APHA files. It may be necessary, therefore, for the new buyer to bring the ownership history up to date by providing APHA with transfers to and from all involved parties. Transfer fees are required for each transfer submitted. To avoid potential problems, it is recommended that incomplete or "open" transfers NOT BE SIGNED

Think of L as a "foster" home then. I did it with my mare's papers...if I had let them know there was an inbetween person then I would have had to track her down in jail. They don't really "care" it seems as long as the horse is signed off on and transfered to the new rightful owner. It's been 8 years now and nothing has happened :p
