Paint Registration Question
I had no idea where to put this, and this seemed as good a place as any since a lot of equine breeders are obviously involved with registries.

I did some research but can't seem to find an answer, I didn't find anything on the APHA website, but maybe I didn't look hard enough?

Does anybody have any idea what the rules are on registering foals from deceased parents? I recently purchased a 2 year old unregistered Paint filly, and when I inquired about registering her, the owner said she can't be registered because her sire died and his papers have been turned in already.

But this confuses me - if a proper breeding report was done, why on earth should it matter if he died? The breeding report should show that X stallion was bred to X mare in 2006, and the resulting 2007 foal was never registered, shouldn't it?

So I'm curious if this is actually a rule and the reasoning behind it, or if I'm being hogwashed because of some fishy circumstances?

If the sire and dam are DNA typed on record and you can get their owners signatures on a breeder certifacate, then pay the required fees it shouldn't be an issue to reg the horse.

I believe you are correct about the parents being deceased not mattering and also about the breeding report. If the breeding report was done, the dam owner should be able to register the horse and transfer it to you. I would call the APHA for help.

They will want you to have it Parentage Verified but thats just a matter of pulling some mane hairs and paying the fee.

Who ever was in charge of your moms legal affairs can sign a transfer and send proof they have the legal right to do so and APHA will accept that signature.
