Registering a Paint--Just Wondering...

One of my geldings, Scotch, is not registered but I have his papers. It states that his breeder was going to register him as a breeding stock paint. Although I cannot think of a good reason to register him at this time, I have a few questions to ask.

Scotch has a stocking that comes to above his hock. This is considered a white marking correct? His blaze comes under his chin on one side too. Also, around his...erm...groin, he has a few small white patches (do horses sometimes get white spots/scars from being gelded?). His "thingy" is also pink with a few black spots. Would any of these classify as true paint markings?

Sorry, I just wanted to ask. I don't know if I will ever register him, but I was just curious.

It's okay dear, you can say penis.

I have a grey Arab gelding whose penis is pink with black splotches, so those aren't considered 'paint' markings.

Your horse is a minimally expressed paint, which means his breeder was correct in that he would have been registered as a breeding stock paint.

The white spots you see are probably just minimal paint markings, not scars from his gelding.

I'm pretty sure he just needs one parent to be registered as a Paint horse. But if you go to the APHA, it can tell you more bout requirments for regestration(sp?)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

A paint has to have at least one body spot of the opposite color(if predominately white, then the body spot has to be brown, black, sorrel, if body color solid, then the white spot has to be on the body) and it has to be at least 2" in size. The APHA has the explanation of where the white or other color counds on the body and where it doesn't count(legs, ears, etc)
If your horse doesn't have a body spot of at least 2", then it has to be registered as Breeding Stock.

Review the APHA rules concerning where the white has to be and how large at APHA.Com - Color Reguirements

If the white comes above his hock I 'think' he would qualify for regular registry (do you have a pic).

If it was me I'd send in his papers. It gets more expensive w/ age.

Ah, rule number 7 answered my question. Thanks for that link!

APHA.Com - Color Reguirements

Thanks for all of the information everyone! Scotch's sire was a registered breeding stock paint stallion, Skip N Easy. His dam was a Wiescamp branded registered quarter horse mare.

Here is his left rear leg:


I think his spots near his sheath are larger than two inches--how I would shave them without getting killed, I am uncertain. Would that be considered a "non-visible" zone though?

His chin:


Scotch is going to be 16 in August, so if I were to register him it would probably be quite expensive. And I'm a college student.

I took a look at his papers, and one of his previous owners signed it. Since they no longer own him, how could I send this in? Try to track down the breeder and get them to sign new papers or something? Also, the breeder put down the desired names with their ranch brand in it. If I were to register him, could I choose a different name?

First, if I read your post right, the horse has never been registered, and since he is 16 yrs old, it's going to cost you $500 if he's elgible for the regular registry or $100 for the Solid Paint registry (APHA fees are at APHA.Com - Registration Fees ).
Since a previous owner signed the papers but never sent them in, I believe you're going to have to go back to the breeder for new papers.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

hahahaha! i loved the first response

As long as you contact the registration association before mailing the papers in(when you do decide to register him), there is no reason for you to make any mistakes with the paperwork.

We old horsewomen don't usually beat around the bush with calling something its proper name, even genitalia!

I was at my trainer's, and my gelding Casper was in the crossties being groomed. When he gets groomed, he likes to let things 'all hang out', if you know what I mean.

It was an open house of sorts, so there were plenty of nonhorse people roaming around.

One little girl came by with her mother, saw Casper hanging out in all his glory and said, "Mommy, what is THAT?"

Her mother turned red, stammered something about it being his 'winky', when I turned to the youngster and said, "That's his penis, honey. He uses it to pee. If he were a stallion, he'd use it to make baby horses with, too."

I thought the kid's mother was going to have a stroke. I'm an evil, evil woman. Muaahaahaa!
