Alas, my old stallion Surrabu had a distinctly individual number, as does his
son Abu Ben Surrabu, who has competed frequently the past few years.  For over
three years, and despite MANY calls and letters, the office staff would
actually CHANGE the entry information and "correct" the number for Abu Ben
Surrabu and enter his rides under his sire's record!  As a veterinarian, I
have never been successful in resurrecting a dead horse, but the AERC office
sure can!  A couple of times they actually DELETED the younger stallion's
number from their records, assuming that there was a duplication.  It was very
frustrating to never see him listed as earning his mileage
medallions--although I asked, they never went back and printed him in the
newsletter after they corrected his records.
