ApHC is "AMP"ing up your membership once again!

With the overwhelming positive response to the newest online Color and Points Pedigree options, the ApHC is happy to announce the offering of yet another pedigree option! Foundation Pedigree Designation (FPD) Pedigrees!

Online users are now able to create and print informational three generation FPD Pedigrees listing the following information:
* Registration Number
* Foal Date and Sex
* FPD Eligibility Status
* Percentage of the primary horse
* Name, Registration Numbers, Foal dates, and Percentages of direct lineage for three-generations.

Should you select a horse that does not contain FPD information within its pedigree the service will display a blank pedigree and inform you that no FPD data exists for the selected horse. Your online account will NOT be charged for the FPD Pedigree if no data is found.

All of this information is available to ApHC members for the low rate of only $10 per pedigree.

Another ApHC Member Advantage!

The ApHC is pleased to announce that members owning Appaloosa breeding stallions now have the opportunity to file annual stallion breeding reports online.

To file your Appaloosa stallion breeding report(s) online simply log into the "Members Only" section of the ApHC website and select the "My Stallion Reports" menu option.

To create your stallion breeding report(s), click on the "Create New Stallion Breeding Report" button and enter the requested information.

To update, delete, or add information to a report that has already been created simply click on the "Edit Report" link next to the open report that you wish to change.

On the "My Stallion Report" webpage you will see a listing for "Open Reports" and "Submitted Reports."

"Open Reports" are stallion breeding reports that you are currently entering but have not completed or submitted. You have an ability to enter breeding information throughout the year and the system will retain all information. Just remember to submit the report prior to the November 30th deadline so late fees will not be incurred!

"Submitted Reports" are reports that you have submitted online to the ApHC for approval. Once your online stallion breeding report has been verified as being correctly filed it will be uploaded for you to view via the Web.

Users are required to pay stallion breeding report fees at the time of submission. All submitted stallion breeding reports will automatically have work orders allocated to them as proof of your payment. Any reports submitted after the November 30th deadline will be subject to late fees.
