    Yes, the passport stays with the horse but it really is OK to send them away for naming. While it may be just agelding, name him anyway. Geldings still contribute to pedigrees.

    Personally I don't care how many acres you do or don't have. I'm sure most horses do just fine. The odd horse does not feel safe in such environments. That is the only reason I bring it up. Not sure...

    My home bred fell foul of this rule this year when they registered him with the FEI. I sold him as a foal without a name because at the time only foals with a prefix could be registered with the IHB....

    I'm with DarkBayUnicorn, another person who refuses to breed to grey stallions. Enough good ones in solid colors that I can choose to compliment my mares. Life is too short for all that extra work....

    You will find many people have good things to say about TB's. But in using them in modern day breeding, unless you want to promote them yourself, you're up against it from a selling standpoint before...

    While it is different, you won't be selling many event foals for a profit unless they are well related. At least over here anyway. But under saddle and showing some talent, yes. OK and 3yo's loose....

    I've been gone 3 years and the same argument exists. Use a TB mare if you want. Put them with the right people and if they're good enough they're good enough.
