Registrations


HORNS 101
SIMPLE COLOR DESCRIPTIONS ARE BETTER!
  When filling out registration applications, be careful not to "over do" the color description. Remember, you are limited to only 18 words. The list of approved words you are allowed to use is listed on the back of the paper registration application. If using HORNS, the list of approved words can be accessed by clicking on the "?" in the circle at the front of the line for the color description. Always start your description with the body, example:  "white body with… brown ears... red spots... red lineback… black tail, etc." 
  The form, paper and on HORNS, does not have space for you to list every little spot or patch on the animal.  Remember:  Simple color descriptions are better!  Long detailed color descriptions tend to overload the registration certificate and truly are not needed. 
Questions about color descriptions? 
Contact Rick or Dana at (817) 625-6241.
