Survey of breeders

The ApHC recently sent a survey to breeders (owners of mares at the time of breeding) who, according to our records, owned a mare or mares bred in 2005 and 2006, which did not produce an ApHC-registered foal in the year following breeding. Our intention was to verify breeding and foaling records for those two years and, specifically, to categorize the reasons why foals were not documented.

For example, if the mare was sold while still in foal and the new owner did not register the foal, or the mare failed to conceive, the foal died or the owner simply chose not to register the foal, it would be helpful for us to know about it.

Only those breeders who received the survey need to respond, but we encourage them to visit the website identified in the letter and provide information electronically (preferred method), or send the survey card to ApHC by mail.

Thank you to all the breeders who have responded. Contact the ApHC Registration Department if you have questions or need assistance with the survey.

    I had a colt born in 2005..he was sold and they did not register or transfer to them. I got him back in stunted growth condition and had him gelded. I would still like to register him, but $200 is a little much for a non-charcteristic Appy.

    If I’m not mistaken, the gelding can be registered for $35 if you are a member and the horse has a documented pedigree. I’ll double-check with folks in the Registration Dept.
