    AphC seems to follow what AQHA does a year or two after they do it, so we'll see. I think I heard a rumor that AQHA was going to require all stallions breeding in 2015 to have a 5 panel tested and listed.. or something to that extent. I think I read it somewhere on the forum (maybe even this thread, but I am too lazy to go back and check)
    I remember hearing something like that. There was even discussion of pulling all H/H and N/H horses registry from them. An all horses must prove N/N before registry. Which is what would really fix this problem, but lord knows they won't go that extreme

    They probably won't go that extreme. I really hope they include the full 5 panel, or at least PSSM as well.

    I have been told by some paint breeders that horses that test positive are gelded now in both registrys. I don't know about mares, but they should have NO BREEDING stamped on the papers and then if someone does breed, those papers be destroyed by Registry.
    Or have them be branded on the hip +n/h or some similar .. like that Will NEVER happen..

    As far as I can tell, APHA has no registration restrictions. I'm currently registering a couple and they are Impressive bred, and no testing has been required. AQHA DOES require testing of Impressive bred horses and disclosure on their papers of the status. H/H can't be registered, N/H can be. If the horse has been tested and or both parents have been tested N/N then that status is placed on the papers.

    Of the three, I think the sorrel is the most "rideable". The bay is pretty, but has a long , weak back and coupling. The sorrel has an odd neck tie-in, but at least his back is better and he's not as posty legged as the buckskin.

    I'm for gelding the lot of them. I am greatly concerned about what is happening with the back ends these days -- at this rate we're going to have the equine version of the German Shepherd slink in the Quarter Horse breed (and I like both shepherds and quarter horse).

    I'd geld them all even if they were all n/n nothing screams breed me from any of them.

    Ok what about these guys

    TS Kids Approved- 2010 Buckskin Stallion (Kids Classic Style x Approved By Mister). 15.2hh out of World Champion producing mare. Unshown due to left knee injury. Has a little swelling on knee, but never bothers him, not lame!

    Barlnk Macho Sent Me AQHA/APHA- 2004 Sorrel Stallion (Barlink Machoman Two x Barlink Islebegrand). Very easy to handle with great manners! We tease all our mares off this guy as he is a gentleman around other horses. The only reason we are selling him is I bought Execute and I don't need 2 N/N double registered stallions. Guaranteed Breeder, Live cover or collect. Did a recent fertility test. Exam came back excellent with well within normal limits. Freezes well and ships well also. Nice and very pretty stallion, also a great producer. HYPP N/N per AQHA.

    Execute A Clu- 2013 Sorrel Stallion (Execute x Justa Passionate Clu). HYPP N/N. This colt is very correct and balanced with lots of pretty. He is out of one of the nicest Im Kiddin daughters you will ever find. This colt has not been pushed and is really starting to come into himself. If you want a great show prospect, don't pass him by. He has both AQHA & APHA (solid) papers.

    They all needed to be gelded, like yesterday. I wouldnt consider any of them breed level quality. They might make cute open show horses. N/H can be a problem, as they are not insurable and while you might not have any problems, there is always a chance they will go 4 hooves up

    ^^ This.

    I don't mean to offend, but every single one of these horses could be used as poster children for what is wrong with halter horses these days. Toothpicks for legs, huge almost bloated-looking bodies, super posty back legs.
