If you notice you (or your animals) are not on the list, we are likely missing information from you in order to complete your entries. Also, please note that the “JBE Breed” and the “Breed Registered” may differ. This is likely because there are not enough numbers entered in a certain breed for it to qualify for its own division. See below for more information. If you have any questions, please email JBE Intern Madden Ragan.
