Any suggestions
#1
I'm currently riding a Paint gelding (here in NL) who's name is Bar Skip's Ripplin Red. He's supposed to be age 10, stands approx 15.2 and is pretty much a solid paint. Has roaning over body and a bald face with stockings over his hock/knee joints. His mane is rather thin and fine. He is an absolute doll--kind and willing. I believe he came from the atlantic provinces earlier this year-springtime. I am not sure that current owners have his papers. I will ask.
Does anyone know where I could possibly find out information on this horse, his lineage aad whatnot. Thanks for any info.

If he is reg. APHA that would be the place to start. His name doesn't come up on a google search. Have you talked to the past owner?

I spoke to one of the current owners who informed me that the horse is not actually registered--his papers were never sent in by the original owner! And to do so now would cost a fortune. Drat!

Cayuse;

You can still find out about his lineage if you know who his dam and sire are. Don't worry about him not being registered; the best horses I have owned have been "grade" or non-registered horses. A pure-bred horse is still a pure-bred horse, regardless if the owner never registered him with the breed association.

Are you sure he is a paint? There is no Bar Skip rippling Red registered with AQHA but there hundreds of Bar Skip horses and one

As I've been told by the current owner , he is a Paint but his previous owners didn't sent in his papers so he isn't registered at all. The Current owners have the unfiled papers from the previous owner and will check them out for the listed sire and dam for me so I can run a search.
I'm not unduly bothered by his being unregistered. I'm just one of these people who, when they fall in love with a horse, want to find out every thing they can about the horse.

We can probably help with the Quarter horse side of his ancestors.

Doesn't APHA have cheaper fees if the horse is solid? I don't know I haven't done much with APHA.

He sounds like a lovely horse!

I think all you'd need would to go to the APHA and check out the lineage by the Sire and Dam's names.

Good Luck!
