    Default What name is listed as breeder on your foals?

    Do you use your farm name or your personal name on your foals registration papers as the breeder and owner? Is there a reason for your choice?

    Just curious. I have always listed my personal name. I was thinking of using my farm name instead. I think it is easier for someone to find me through google using my farm name then my real name.

    I use my farm name (with c/o my name) for all my foals. I also have the prefix "EEF" for all my foals for my farm name.

    I use my personal name and not my farm name. I have a prefix which is registered in my name. The main reason is that we didn't have a farm name when we started all this and now that we do we just stick with convention.

    The few foals I've had I've always put in my real name, but I'm not trying to promote a breeding program, just a baby every few years for my personal use.

    Off on a bit of a tangent, it is my personal pet peeve when a horse has a prefix in its name. I understand the logic behind it, but IMO it takes away from a horse's name.

    I too use my name to register. I also use my farm name in their name. However, I do it a bit different. My farm name is Blume Farm so "blume" is in all the names of horses I produce....Roseblume, Borealis Blume, Wolkenblume, Rhodayo Blume, etc.

    I use my personal name as the breeder but my "prefix" as a suffix. And all my horses are named after rose types. I used to think the prefix thing was annoying but now that I am more learned in the breeding market incompletely understand it and use it.
    First and foremost about the horse.
