That's the same thing as saying all the TB or Arabians or any other type of horse in the world that isnt registered isnt the breed it is!!!!
Good lord what has the world coming, i'm going to need to go tell all my dogs they arent dogs and both my TB's they arent TB's bc they arent registered
In order for a horse to be a certain breed, they must belong to that registry. Same with dogs. You can't sell an animal to be a certain breed and not have the registry papers to back it up. If someone is selling me a Jack Russel Terrier, I expect it to have Jack Russell Terrier papers. Or else it is just a small, hyper dog with Jack Russell characteristics.
The dog is still a dog (there is no such thing as an animal registry? So I don't know what you are going on about there...) it is just not a breed of dog, it is a mutt. Your "thoroughbreds" however, would not be considered thoroughbreds because you don't have papers to back it up. Were you to sell them you could advertise them as "TB type" or "grade". If you were to advertise them as thoroughbreds, it would be misrepresentation because you don't have legal documents to back up your statement.
Same with a Hanoverian. If it is not in the registry with legal documents to back up it's heritage then it's not a Hanoverian! It might be a warmblood, a warmblood cross, and yes it probably has Hanoverians in its lineage, but that doesn't make it a Hanoverian.
And PS, if you "own a Hanoverian" then could you at least spell the breed name correctly??
