Registration transfer question
How much can I write on the back of JC papers? I'd like to put my ph. no. and a "call me if retirement home needed" type note before I send this mare's papers to her new owner. I've made this offer on other horses, but I always attached a note instead of writing directly on the papers. I'm afraid this one is going to be resold so I'd like something a little more permanent.
I know I can call the JC monday, but just trying to get some office chores done this weekend.
It does work! A success story to share
Keeping this a bit vague on purpose, but I just have to share this story.
In January I started leasing a 23 year old TB who had had quite the storied past (track, international eventing, fox-hunting, pasture abandonment). One of his caretakers along the way put on her contact info on his papers with a similar note to call if rehoming was ever needed. Well, she got a call in June of this year from someone who had him hanging out in a field down South. The last owner had died a while back and they needed him gone.
He was put on a trailer back North and arrived in horrible condition. I heard that had she known what rough condition he was in that she would have paid to euthanize him instead. But, here he was and so she worked to bring him to health.
I met him this fall and started started taking dressage lessions on him in late December. When given the opportunity to lease him I jumped on it. His transformation has been amazing, and now that he knows he has "his person" (me) he is really blossoming. It is wonderful to see his personality emerge. He's even at the top of his gelding turn-out group now, bossing around others 15 years younger than himself!
So, yes, I encourage you to write a note. You just never know what may happen.
