TB's I know and have owned a few. I just sold a TB gelding with Secretariat not that far back in his line. In TB people this is just not a big deal and not all that impressive. He seems to be in almost all of their lines! LOL He was amazing....his get...not so much. What I'm new to is Reg. QH's. I just bought my first a few weeks ago. So let me rephrase my question a bit and direct it toward a person who has own Reg. QH's.
What I saw when I clicked on the link that the OP posted of this mare's pedigree was that 1) she is listed as QH (not Apendix) and 2) that the mare's grandsire on her dams side is TB(pure). And 3) has many PURE TB's not far back in her line. So here is my question again. What year did they (AQHA) close the Registry on horse other than Pure QH being bred to a PURE QH to have a foal that was able to be Reg. As a PURE QH.
I know that the reg. Never closes as in no more reg. Of horses. What I meant was...like in breeding of dogs....as a certain point the reg. Is closed off to anything other than the breeding of a pure (say collie) to a pure collie to make more pure collie pups. At that point the standard for the breed is set and anything after that is a cross breed (mutt) so to speak. As in a Collie bred with a lab is not Registered as a Collie...it is a mutt.
So what I was asking is at what point did it stop that you could bred a pure TB (such as Secretariat) to a QH and still reg. The foal as a QH.
