One of the fun parts about having foals is naming them
but this can lead to frustration if a name has already been taken.
A new feature on the ApHCC web site is the "Appaloosa Name Look-up"
whereby you can do a search to see if your "never-before-thought-of"
name turns out to be a "very-much-in-use" registered name.
With a growing database of approximately 40,000 registered
names you will delight in creating endless lists of names that
even contain a part of the name you are considering, for example;
you want to name your brand new foal "Sunshine". You type the
name in the search bar and hit the submit button. As the search
engine scans the database, the name Sunshine appears in the results
window which means the name is taken. But alas, not only does
the name Sunshine appear, so does every name in the database that
contains the word "Sunshine"! With an even more tenacious desire
to use the word Sunshine, you think up the name "Sunshine's Desire".
You check again, and receive a message that says ***no matches***.
This means victory for you and your foal now has an official name!
The next step is to download and complete a registration form
from our web site, take some photos and pop it in the mail box.
