never transferred the mare’s papers into her name so now I am having a problem

QUESTION: 

Dear Mark,

I bought a beautiful yearly colt last year with the intention of using he for breeding. And when I bought him I was told that he was registerable. And he is but the person never transferred the mare’s papers into her name so now I am having a problem with the person on doing her part. The reason I am so bent on this is because my paint has the looks and disposition any person would want to breed their mare too. And I don’t believe in keeping a colt a stallion a stallion on just papers alone. Many people that have met this as a 2yr old cannot believe he has not been gelded. I feel he compliments the Paint / Quarter Horse breed a lot. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Mikell

ANSWER: 

Hi Mikell,

If you cant get the papers, geld him tomorrow! Call either the Paint Horse or Quarter Horse associations and see if you can get some help. Bottom line is, I never give money to anyone for a horse unless I see the papers first. If you can’t get papers it will be a good learning experience for you.

Thanks…

Mark
