Gold Star Registration

 
 
 
 
Betty received a question:

Betty, I saw your name on the Gold Star Registration list in Domestic Rabbits.  Can you tell me what is "Gold Star Registration"? 

ARBA Registration: To get your rabbit registered,  your rabbit needs to have a three-generation pedigree,  be at least six months old and free of disqualification and that you are a member of ARBA and that your rabbit passes the examination by an ARBA licensed Registrar and you pay a fee of $6.
 


If one or both of the parents of your rabbit is not registered, your rabbit will get a registration without any seal.   The spot on the lower left corner is empty.


 
If both of the parents of your rabbit have been registered but at least one of the grandparents is not registered, your rabbit will get a red seal.

 

If both of the parents and all four grandparents of your rabbit are registered, your rabbit will get a red and white seal.

 
 
If all three generations of rabbits, 14 of them, are registered, your rabbit will get a red, white and blue seal.

 

If all three generations of rabbits in the pedigree are Grand Champions, your rabbit will get a gold star in addition to the red, white and blue seal.   Such registration is called a "Gold Star Registration" and all gold star registered rabbits are published in the Domestic Rabbits.

Gold Star Registration started in 1991 but the publication of the list in Domestic Rabbits only started about 6 or 7 years ago.

 

From left to right, the registrations show no seal, red seal, red and white seal, red white and blue seal and gold star registration.

At the current time, all of Betty's English Angora are at the gold star registration status.   Betty is working on her French Angora's registration status.
