APHA Offers Incentive For Turning SBR In Early
FORT WORTH, Texas-With foaling season just around the corner, it is now time for Paint Horse stallion owners to file their 1999 Stallion Breeding Report (SBR).
American Paint Horse Association SBRs must list each mare a stallion was exposed to during the past breeding season, and be received by the association postmarked on or before November 30, 1999. If the SBR is postmarked after November 30, the stallion owner must pay a late fee.
r By turning in their SBRs early, stallion owners will beat the rush and receive their complimentary pre-printed breeder's certificates without delay.
r "This year we are mailing pre-printed breeder's certificates to every stallion owner who sends in a stallion breeding report regardless of how many mares they bred," APHA's Registrar Cindy Grier said.
Owners are encouraged to send in their SBRs as soon as possible, because the pre-printed forms are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If owners wait until November 30 to send in their SBRs, it may be more than three months before their breeder's certificates are sent to them.
"The pre-printed breeder's certificates are so convenient and easy to use," Grier said. "All the pertinent information is already on them, so the only thing stallion owners have to do is sign the certificate."
During September, the APHA sent out SBR forms to all stallion owners who turned in a 1998 SBR. If you are a new owner, or have not received your form, call the APHA Forms Line at (817) 834-2742, extension 271.
The APHA was formed in 1962 with approximately 3,800 horses in the registry. Today, more than 500,000 Paints are registered with the association, making Paint Horses the fifth-largest horse breed in the world. Now more than 74,000 members strong, the APHA strives to preserve and promote the history, breeding, training, racing, showing, sales and enjoyment of American Paints.
