I just got a pretty Paint Mare and I would like to get her basic info but don't want to spend a fortune just to find out her sire/dam and DOB.

Could someone look her info up for me? Her registered name is "She's Taylor Made"

I appreciate anything you can give me. Once I know for sure she is on there I may pay to access it and change her registration info.

Thanks.

Why would you need to change the registration information? If you own her, don't you have her papers? Transferred them to yourself? Become a member of APHA?

When I was an active member of APHA, I had access to the databanks. Just a little confused here...

Edit: also, if you own her, know her registered name, her papers would have her sire/dam and DOB

Just because a horse is registered doesn't mean the current owner has the papers! Registered horses get sold all the time without papers! She probably just knows the horses registered name and wants to make sure she is registered before paying to become a member and hopefully get the horses papers in her name if possible I am not a member of APHA but I hope someone on here can help you OP!

No I don't have her papers

The lady I got her from - got her from the person that registered her but never got her papers. She is just a pleasure horse, I never plan to breed her although I heard that she has had a foal. I am not an APHA member so I can't look it up myself, I was just hoping someone out there would help me out. If I have to I will pay to join but all I want to know is her birthday and parents so seems like a lot of money just to find out that.

I don't know that I will try and change ownership, I am just interested to get some info on her. I didn't get much from the current owner.

As far as I know, through APHA, you can't transfer ownership online. You have to have a hard copy of the papers, with the previous owners signature on it releasing ownership of the horse to the new owner, you. You put your information on the back of the papers and send it through the mail.

That helps. If I decide to register her I'll need to track down the owners info then. Good to know.

Any registry I know of requires the hard copy with owner transfer to get her papers to you.

Even if you don't plan on breeding her, without the papers she has an equal value to a grade of unknown parentage/breeding. It would be well worth the trouble and money to get ahold of her papers and get them in your name. If you don't end up keeping her for the rest of her natural life, it is to her benefit that you have her papers if you were to ever sell her.

Does the lady you bought her from remember who she had purchased her from? The other thing is, if she is registered but neither you or the previous owner have the papers, are you sure you are spelling the name correctly?

I was able to track down her first owner via email, but she said Taylor wasn't in her name the breeder registered her. She sent me her registered name in "Quotes" so I assume it is her name. I also went to the APHA site and did a name search and it shows her name is taken. That is all I can do on their without subscribing.

I will probably transfer her registration eventually, but I know that will involve a lot more work. I really just want to know when to celebrate her birthday, I know its a silly reason to check but I want to make sure how old she is as well.

Heck, guys all she wanted was any info on the horse, not whether she could register her or not.Not a big deal. I wish I was still a member, I would have gladly looked it up.. Sorry, but can't help, sounds as if Kansas spice girl is trying to help.

The Owner before that was Ranches Wilkerson (June 19th,1987)
Before them it was the original owner (the Breeder)
Taylor doesn't have any Progeny (offspring), or performance record.
But she does a full sister if you want more info on her sister I can pull it for you! Looks like the breeder was the Ranches Wilkerson person.

I'm glad I checked. I was told she is 18. Wholly cow that's a bit of a difference.

They probably didn't register her foal because the person that bred her hadn't changed her registration. I didn't realize she had so many owners.

Its interesting to see how much people really know about their horses. Good thing I started her on Senior feed after all. Lol

Still very happy with the horse she's an amazing sweetie. Thanks again!

Does APHA have a mailing address listed for the current owner? I ask because I know that on the Arab database, you can look up a member's mailing address. That kind of information would certainly help if it is a current address :D

wyominggrandma... I try lol.... the registration process, or anything at all to due with transfer literally SUCKS lol! Im glad others posted about her possible "registration issues", cause its no walk in the park, as im sure you all know... especially when missing papers is in the mix! OP be prepared when and if you transfer her papers, because most likely everything that can go wrong will :) I highly recommend you do get them asap because time just complicates things, and for the previous owner those papers all of a sudden mean much less as the horse is no longer her problem, and sometimes those papers tend to disappear!

Yup, its....

(Please trade any addresses via PM and do not post on an open forum)

Is this the woman you bought her from? According to APHA this is the last person who had her papers transferred into their name at least...

I don't think I need her sisters info. Thank you though. She's almost 25 and I don't anticipate ever selling her or finding another home so I don't know that I will change her registration. Sounds like a lot of work for no real purpose, at least in my situation. If she was younger I might consider it.

I have never had a horse this old, she seems very healthy but I was concerned about her being 18. Now I'm a little worried about riding her too much. How old can you still ride a horse in thats in good health? I know newbie question, I've just always had young horses.

When my mares papers were lost, APHA sent a new copy to the person that was on her paperwork as the owner. Then that lady signed off and sent them to me so I could get my mare registered in my name. That lady was super nice. Lets hope that the lady that's actually on her papers is just as nice and will go through the work and forward them to you. Some people can be very unhelpful. :-( It took 4 years. Ugh.

Persons name and address removed.

No, I think that was 3 owners ago. The lady I got her from said she had her for 2 years and the one I tracked down before that said she had her for 16 years and her name was Cindy. So seems like she may have had a few owners before that even.
