    Probably. It depends on which breed you are interested in. The vast majority of breeds have no recent changes in their Standard, so the information in the current version will be the same as the information in the previous version, or the version from 20 years ago. There are a few of the newer breeds, or newer colors of old breeds, where the information you need would be updated in the new version. Few people get the new version every time it comes out.

    Are you going to show them at an APA show? 4-H does not go by the SOP much

    My local fair has an APA judge that judges. He's just not allowed to disqualify.

    He likely has to go by the 4-H rules though?

    I am not saying it is a bad thing just different
