Has this every happened to any of you?
I'm a little bit bummed on the idea of not being able to 'properly' register my mare Bailey. I adore this mare from top to bottom, I've owned her since she was 5 months old - now 7 years. I've started her from the ground up. I love her and have put my heart, soul and all my knowledge in to her and in my opnion she's down right amazing.
For the past seven years I've been going back and forth on and off with AQHA trying to register her. Here is a link to her pedigree: Farewell Blue Bailey Quarter Horse
The problem, they keep telling me is that both parents are Appendix, but in my eyes, this still makes her half and half. Half TB and half QH. And, neither of her parents had a high enough speed index on the track to allow for her to be registered that way either. It's very frusterating for me. She has registered parents, both registered through the AQHA, why can she not be? They had me register her through the Half Quarter Horse Registery, which is just kind of chincy and silly IMO.
I love this mare, as I've stated, and I'd like to, one day breed her out of my own selfishness to just simply have a piece of her. But, I do not want to do any injustice to the foal in this horse market.
Have any of you been through this? Were you able to get your horses registered?
