what do they mean by "blue-papered"

I have heard this term used a couple of times in regards to a horses' pedigree, and I'm very curious as to what it means.

A blue-papered Foxtrotter (such as Cleo) has registrations papers from the MFTHBA showing at least four generations of registered Foxtrotter heritage.
Since Foxtrotters have a lot of TWH breeding in their backgrounds, not all MFT papers have four generations of MFT's. Does that make sense, Im in a hurry.

And Cleo's papers are not blue, but white with a nice little blue border.

Okay, then the person who used the term must have known what they were talking about It was used referring to a yearling Belgian.

Sorry, I meant the person using the term must NOT have known what he was talking about.

Quarter Horses have blue and yellow papers. But, you usually only hear the yellow papered ones referred to in those terms...means Appendix Registered for them.

I don't know about Belgians!

I have only heard of "blue-papered Foxtrotters" which makes sense because the breed is new enough that not all foxtrotters have four generations of pure MFT blood.

Ask DappleGrayMyWay, resident Belgian expert. She will know if the quote has merit or if they're just blowin' smoke.

When a horse is called papered in the blue, at least in quarter horses it means that they ahve a great pedigree. Usually with lots of champions or who's who of quarter horses. Blue refers to blue ribbons you win for first place. Also heard it called Papered in the purple, since purple ususally is grand or reserve grand champions.

Appaloosas with "regular" papers used to be blue papered. My old boy's were. But I think the "tenative" and later "non-characteristic" papers were brown. Couldn't find the one set we had to check.

>>>> Appaloosas with "regular" papers used to be blue papered. My old boy's were. But I think the "tenative" and later "non-characteristic" papers were brown. Couldn't find the one set we had to check.

Regular papers (with a # prefix) were white with a blue border, and Tentative (T prefix) were white with an orange border. B prefix papers (breeding stock-- originally only for solids that had characteristics but not enough coat pattern, but eventually also included, for a brief time, noncharacteristic solids until the N prefix was introduced for them) were white with a pink border. ID/PC certificates were solid white or solid beige.

This changed in the early 1980's when ApHC quite issuing ID, PC, B, and T papers. The registration certificate color went to beige/brown border for all registered Appaloosas, and they were all either # or N prefix. They were slightly adjusted in the late 1990's to white with a brown border, and now, for the recently added International registry horses, white with a green border-- the Int'l papers are also vertical in format rather than horizontal.

I replied to the PM

Also just to say it publicly, I have not heard the term used for Belgians.

I kind of suspect if it's being thrown out like that on a yearling, it's very possible a little smoke is coming around

When talking in regards to foxtrotters:
Brown papers= missing names somewhere in the papers aka has an "unknown"

Blue papers = All names on papers

Gold papers = All parents, grand parents, ect. on papers are named, and blood typed
