“Monday” Memo

A press release will be sent out this week regarding an ApHC agreement with Select Breeders Services. SBS is offering Appaloosa stallion owners a 10% discount on freezing services for registered ApHC stallions whose semen is intended for export. This agreement goes hand in hand with the new International Registration Incentive Program (IRIP), and should help Appaloosa stallion owners increase their breeding options worldwide.

Sale consignment packets are in the final stages of production and will be available online sometime later this week. We already have a list of members interested in receiving a packet. You may have noticed the tear-out request form in the National Show premium book. Remind members to check the website for the new consignment packet.

The Senate Committee on Science, Commerce & Transportation has a planned mark-up session on Wednesday, April 25th for S.311, “The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act.” This means the committee may debate, amend, or rewrite the proposed legislation, and may vote on whether or not to send the bill to the entire Senate for its consideration.

    You have absolutely no idea how I was bouncing in my seat reading about the arrangement made with SBS for a 10% discount for appaloosa breeders. As an overseas member, I thank the ApHC from the bottom of my heart!

    Diane — We’d be interested in hearing from you about specific disciplines that are of greatest interest in your part of the world.

    I was interested in the World Show Sale Info. I have been checking the website under the World Sale Section but I have not seen the new packet information. Could I be looking in the wrong spot or has it been delayed on getting on the website? Thank you.

    It will be there very soon. Thanks for checking. We’ve completed the final review/proofing, so it should be up before the end of the week.
