Back in 2004 when I was researching the political situation I talked to lots of breeders who had been around the block. I heard and in chat groups there were hints of a previous ADCA political situation. I had some conversations with a couple members of the Moore family ( Logsden grandkids) and I knew there was bitterness and I knew a little bit of the reason. Mr. Logsden was responsible for ADCA and for the preservation of the Dexter breed and until 1987 the family also maintained the registry and records. It was shortly after these documents that the Peerless herd also split from ADCA and refused to have any further interaction or to register their animals.
I have some interesting documents from 1987 tht are so similar in tone to 2004. I will get them added in the near future. I need to win the time lottery!
