    Or do the string test as that provides a good estimate. Height is multifactorial and hard to guess from the pedigree. Out of the same pair, you can get vastly different results in different...

    Your making some fairly big leaps. From just coming to recognize the disease to the breeders won't test, to a cover up....in 4 cases.
    If they can figure out where it came from, it might be headed...

    For two totally different sports. The ability needed for the cross country is not one that was selected for stadium jumping. You know that..

    That is the whole bloody point!
    They have been used to death here and they couldn't compete with European Wb's. It has been tried and it didn't work to produce top horses as a rule. That is why most...

    He would be 19 this year and he started winning 9 years ago, so I very much disagree with this one authors opinion. The courses did not change that much in 6 years between the prediction and his...

    Why do you care what people think?
    It is about producing good horses, so if you produce even one, then that is a win.

    There are some top horses bred in Holland, why don't you go to the KWPN...

    Opinions are like a$$holes in the horse world, everyone has one. So put your money and time where your mouth is and relax on trying to convince everyone else, as others already have their opinions.

    I would do something like that for the experience.
    A really, really nice ribbon cost like $14-$20. ;) And unless you are going to sell her, I doubt it matters. Unless you really like ribbons.

    So I had to look this up because I didn't know but thought it might be something similar.

    So my thought was (without knowing the details but guessing at the...

    No I don't think that extension is involved in making a bay/brown horse, and that you think a black horse can "carry" brown in the way you think.
    I think it may be that there is a version of the...

    Ok dominate A Agouti, to be technical as opposed to "a" recessive Agouti.
    Not every horse carries the dominate A. Of course they all have one form or other. Is that clearer?

    This is...

    That would just be a chestnut. Black is E and Agouti (bay)is A, chestnut is e.

    Possibly but what if it is a difference in the E gene that allows it to be resistant to the Agouti?
    Of course it will only show up along with the Agouti gene....

    I know the rest of it and how...
  14. Right. That is a great example but you need to...

    Right. That is a great example but you need to know the grandparents also.
    If (my assumption) the E gene is the cause, then the parents of the black stallion should have the brown expression...

    Didn't know that, that is very interesting. Is it a flipped e or and dysfunctional E?

    No, I mean if you found Brown horses that had that trait passed to them through a chestnut parent (this is the horse with Brown in the family), you could assume it came from the Agouti as opposed to...

    It seems that whatever causes the Brown is linked directly to the Agouti gene or is a dominate aspect of the E. Like a form of Black allele that is not susceptible to the Agouti.
    It would be...

    He was a very cool horse but I am not sure there is a lot of frozen around.
    He threw very nice temperaments also, but not particular tall horses.

    It isn't extraordinary at all. And I am not telling any one not to use a Tb, I have my own horses with Tb in my pasture. All most of us are saying is that your chances (odds, stats) of breeding a...

    It's kind of like Long drive vs golf. So much more to the game.
    Rena. after 43 pages and you are still missing the point.
    The sport didn't change so much that Tb's can't do it.
    Breeders used Tb...
