Iroc is probably in refference to a car that was sold from 1985 till 1990 called and Iroc-Z. (my boyfriend had a one, I loved that car!!)

Seems strange that a reputable breeder wouldn't have put their farm initials at the beginning of his registered name, though.
Many breeders may choose to not use initials in front of a name. It has no bearing on whether they are reputable or not.

The AHA only changes the registered names of geldings, and only those geldings who haven't already shown and won A rated and above awards
They will change the name of mares and stallions if they do not have either a show record or progeny record.

Your horse beautiful and has a lovely eye!!!

Interesting. I was not aware of that change. Riddle, I stand corrected.

When I was heavy into the Arabian show world, you couldn't change the name of any registered animal.

Then the AHA decided it was okay to change a gelding's registered name if he didn't have a show record.

When did they make the change to include all horses, Kristine?

I found the most recent information on AHA's website concerning name changes.

Apparently, it's a little more restrictive than just 'no progeny or show record'. The horse can't have earned points or awards for any sponsored Arabian event, and has to have been either domestic bred or imported in utero.


The recorded owner may request a change of the horse's name provided the horse has no registered progeny, is not an imported animal, has never been exported, has not received any points in previous IAHA or AHA programs, has not been issued a Certificate of Registration for Racing and does not have any recorded results in the OEIP Program or Arabian Community Shows (ACS).

The Certificate of Registration must be submitted, along with a written request including the signature of the recorded owner, and the name change fee. Upon approval by the AHA Registry, an amended Certificate of Registration will be issued to the recorded owner of the horse.

This name change rule applies only to domestic horses (Article 1031.) or horses imported in utero. (Article 1004., 1006.)
