One ADCA member got annoyed with the assn. and started his own. Just like you.
Lasted about 30 years as I remember, but don't quote me. Maybe it was 30 animals, all long ago now. I do remember the guy died, 'registry' died with him. Lots of folks with 'registered' Dexters and nowhere to go. They came back to the ADCA, but the records were crap, bulls 25-30 years old with calves on the ground, lots of gaps, etc.
Sandi Thomas volunteered herself to sort it out, as she was the self appointed purity guru of the day. I think she found about half would qualify through pedigree to come back, the rest were questionable, in her mind. Result: the Board accepted her opinion, some were accepted back, the rest are history. This was somewhere around 1984-5??
Maybe today DNA could bring more back, if you can find them.
If you want more accurate info, contact Sandi. She probably still has all the paperwork.
That's what I thought the name was, and I suspect it is connected to Mr. Senior in the northeast, Cloneboniff farm, who registered in the UK, imported quite a few animals, and seemed never to affiliate with ADCA. Thanks Carol for your help!
Yes. . .. time flies. . This is the 15th anniversary year for Legacy. Anything happens to me Karrie can move right in and take over, as can Nico from the Netherlands, for he is an old hand working with the Legacy registry, and then there is the PDCA registrar who also knows the system, and the webmaster can update any and all.
