    Squid Hill Halter horses are very pleased to to annouce that our 4 month old QH filly has been sold to the USA.
    We have been led to believe that she is the youngest Aus born and bred QH to be exported to the USA. (I am happy to be corrected)
    Thankyou to all those that have helped us. The filly leaves in May.

    She was bred by Glenda Rilestone and purchased by us in utero last year.

    She is FULL sister to Magics' Imperial Shanay owned by Sue Hodges (ZOO)

    Hang on to that one Zoo.

    Congratulations squid
    I was wondering as what breed did they purchase the filly, as she is not eligible for American registration.

    Selling QH's to the USA. We send our camels to the middle east and Arabs to Arabia.
    It makes perfect sense.

    Sorry squid I might have not been clear before, but you have stated that your horse was sold to the USA and judging from your heading you are implying that it's as a Quarter Horse, however as I am sure you are aware she is ineligible for American Quarter Horse registration, so would you tell me as what breed her is going to be exported as ? thankyou in advance

    megs and remaani I have congratulated Squid on her achievement, and I think it is a great step forward for the horse industry within Australia, however I was wondering as to what breed/association was making this achievement,
    Megs I am very well aware of the stallion that was exported, his new owner waited over two years for the American QHA to change there ruling on the percentage of foundation blood ( not stud book thoroughbred ) that it would allow for our Australian horse's to be eligible for there registration I think that the figure is 1/16, and the horse that squid is talking of has more than that allowance, so either the rules of the AmQHA have changed or the filly was exported to the credit of a different Association. I am just interested as to what association that may be, I thought that was a valid question.

    i was just asking the question well sounded like an attack towards her and a bit of a dig that was why i asked. I dont know much about QH's but i have one now LOL.

    Australian QH's??

    Just a question for the QH breeders on here, but are the majority of aussie bred QHs, not being bred along foundation lines?? And if so, why??

    Do aussies tend to infuse more TB into the breed over here??

    Is line breeding a problem for the Australain QH??

    In my opinion the number of horse's breed along foundation line's while significantly smaller than the US as a percentage of the total breed population are probably the same, I think that it is probably more a reflection of quantity of horse's bred nothing more. I also think that it is all on what you look at in the horse's bloodlines. Are pleasure people chaseing Zippo Pine Bar and Invester both very well respected sire's within the industry or Three Bars ( there grandsire ) who is considered foundation breeding - I think it's all a matter of perception
    In the US there are many horse's that are registered QH that are almost pure TB, they are many for the more specialised events along the Hunter/Hunter Jumper Line's
    Don't believe that line breeding is a problem, most of the breeders that do "line breed" do so know exactly what they want to achieve and are doing it with a specific purpose in mind, It's up to the individual to decide what there feeling's are on the matter.

  18. Congratulations, squid!
    It is an achievement to breed and to sell an Ozzy bred QH to the land of its origin.
    We've done that, we bred and exported our stallion Metallic Oak Q42461 to the USA. However, when his new owner approached us first time with an offer to purchase him, we informed her that he wasn't eligible for American Registration in Australia at that point of time. He had one FM (foundation mare) in the fourth generation. The lady had to wait for 2 years for the change of rules in the states before she could bring him out to Michigan. The US breeders AUTOMATICALLY assume that if a horse is registered with an Australian QH association, its eligible for an Am. registration as well, which is not the case. Australia is the only country (correct me if I'm wrong) to have its own Australian Quarter Horse Stud book and does not go under the American one as all the rest of the countries do.
    So I'm just wondering, squid, have you told the buyers that the filly they've bought isn't eligible for an AmQHA registration? Your caption says she is sold as a QH.:confused: :confused:

    there is a word "integrity" when it comes to breeding or selling.:)
    We would hate to loose our market overseas because of a buyer's unawearness and the seller's reluctance to tell.... or , possibly, the seller didn't know herself.... :( If the shoe was on the other foot and it was you paying the freight for an unregistable horse, how would you feel?:)

    OK **stands with hands in the air and guns in the holster** :D

    Firstly as per the original post

    Squid Hill Halter horses are very pleased to to annouce that our 4 month old QH filly has been sold to the USA.

    Regardless of what the purchaser has brought the filly for, is not for anyone to question. I am sure the purchaser has done his/her homework for one reason or the other................

    Secondly there are at least 3 of us here who are QH breeders so shouldn't we be proud that Australia again can export stock irregardless of registration status. There are many fields a QH can be shown in without being "Q" reg. Don't be so one eyed guys or may be green :D its about time we didn't have to keep importing and that our stock is good enough to be exported. If it happened to me i would be the proudest person on the earth.

    Maybe if it was not squiddly that had posted this your views may have been a little different, and you know i am NOT taking sides, but look at it as a positive. This has no bearing that i have a full sister either just seeing it without being prejudice and for the good of our industry.

    Oh by the way ddr isn't it so disappointing that so many AmQH's are reg with a full Q number even though they are more TB than QH. Again the industry is turning our sport to a rich mans dream where we have to ride different horses for different disciplines. Gone way out the way of the versatile QH. JMO :)*

    **double checks the fwogs are ok** :))
