Initials are the three to five letters on a pedigree in front and after the name of an animal. They indicate which breeder has bred the animal and who has bought it. And if the animal is sold on, they will get another initial put after it. Often times, the letters in the initials are an abbreviation of the breeders herd name.
For example: Hedgery of the High Moors is HOTHM, Hedgery Dèvi is DEVI and Hedgery Stitch is STT. If the first would breed an animal names James, the pedigreename would be HOTHM James. If Hedgery Stitcht would buy the animal, it becomes HOTHM James STT. But is Hedgery Dèvi buys the animal from Hedgery Stitch, the pedigreename becomes HOTHM James STT-DEVI.
Applying for initials
If you are a new breeder or a breeder that’s not yet active on THP Registry, you first need to apply for initials. Make sure to use your real first name, last name, address and email address, because otherwise we cannot register you as a registrar on our platform because of legal purposes. This information is not shared with third parties unless legally obligated. You also need a herd name and if you already have initials, you can enter them into the form as well. It can take up to 14 days to process your application, though it usually takes a lot less time. After applying for you initials, you will receive a breeders certificate to proof you are a registrant with us.
World Initials Database
On THP Registry, we also maintain a Worldwide Initials Database, which is exactly what it says. We aim to maintain it well, but with so many breeders worldwide, it can be a challenge to spot any breeders that have stopped breeding. In the database, you will find the initials, the region where the breeder is active (Universal, Europe, North America, South America, Asia or Africa), the specific country the breeder lives, their herd name and any important notes (No longer breeding, banned, awaiting affix, etc.).
On our registrants page, we show a global map where our registrants are based as well as a table below that shows where the breeder is active (Universal, Europe, North America, South America, Asia or Africa), the specific country the breeder lives, their herd name, their initials and any important notes (No longer breeding, banned, awaiting affix, etc.). Their herd name and initials lead to their personal pedigree database. All databases are visible for all registered members.
The pedigree database is where you find all registered animals and their background animals all in a single list. You can search through the database to find animals and you can sort most of the columns on alphabetic order or numeric order, depending on the column. The database list shows the Pedigree name, registry number, secondary number, EMS code, breeder and verification status.
