·        Adding/Editing Covering Sire Paragraphs

o   The Catalog Builder automatically produces covering sire paragraphs for AQHA covering sires, sires of foals at side, and sires of embryos selling at side.

o   To edit an existing paragraph:

§  Select the stallion from the drop-down menu on the Catalog Indexes page

§  Click Open Selected

§  Save after making your changes

o   To write Non-AQHA paragraphs

§  A text editor will open allowing you to type your own covering sire paragraph for Paints and Appaloosas.

§  Type the sire’s name in the “Enter Sire Name” field above the text editor

§  Save after creating your paragraph

·         NOTE: We suggest using the existing AQHA paragraphs as a formatting reference for creating your own Non-AQHA paragraphs.
