He was bred by a friend of mine, so I know I can get her to sign off on the papers. The stallion owner is somewhat local and still active, so I don't anticipate any issues there.
I believe it would cost me $160 US (membership for me, registration fee, DNA kit fee).
But why do I want it?
Will I ever show him in anything to get points? No idea. There is a big Andalusian show every year about 2 hours away, so I could go if I so desired. His balls were knocked off many years ago, so there's no chance of any little Cisco's ever needing to be registered.
I think it's because in my mind Andalusians are still not an overly common breed, so it's a bit of proof. You know, of his majikal unicorn pony bloodlines.
|Because he is 25% real unicorn.|
I've got a couple of months to decide before I would need to get my butt in gear and get the paperwork submitted.
The other thing I would need to decide before sending the registration in is a name. As in a proper show name type of name.
Cisco is a bit too simple. Great for an everyday name, but for showing I would want something fancier. And I would like to incorporate Cisco into it. And maybe keep it Spanish.
Unfortunately, my Spanish sucks. Like, I can mostly count to 10 and that's about it.
So I have asked Google for suggestions. So far the winner is Meter Cisco - which means to make trouble. It seems fitting.

|Note the innocent face.|
If anybody has any other suggestions, I would love to hear them!
