I do not think that it says on the AHA records where Bellisimo was born. Here are the answers in case you want to know to see what I'm saying...
Bellisimo BCR was conceived at Kehilan Arabians at 1059 FM 1187 West, Fort Worth, TX. He was born at one of our farms (the original one in Austin at 14800 Bear Creek Pass, Austin TX). Of course that is no longer the address of our farm. I do not know how anyone could know where he was born exactly. They might know my mailing address at that time but not where the horse would be foaled out. I have a mare due the first two weeks in June. That baby will be born at a foaling facility in Houston. I actually don't even know the address there yet myself. The reason for her being foaled out in Houston is that I bought the mare from a client forgetting that she was due the week of the Egyptian Event. Which by the way was the same time that Bellisimo was born. I had to fly home after only being there 2 days from the EE to meet my mare as I was afraid she might foal without me there and my husband might need help.
Now yes true - If AHA went out of business (which quite honestly wouldn't shock me totally as PAHR did) we would have possibly lost the records. In this case would would have to fly to Aurora, Colorado and did through all the records if they even keep physical records on file... I'll bet they have converted to electronic archives by now but am not sure.
true physical birth would be hard to trace how ever it would be easier to asses because they have year of birth on file as well as the recorded owners name so if you are his owner from birth then it would be easy to deduct that he was born at your farm .. wouldn't it?
