    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.


    (? is equal to the alpha symbol)

    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.
  6. Possibly but what if it is a difference in the 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...
  7. 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...

    He is two. Lots is going to change. Including that neck with proper work.
    Conformation is important but I would never put a pic on the internet for people to comment on. There are lots of...

    Didn't know that, that is very interesting. Is it a flipped e or and dysfunctional E?
  10. No, I mean if you found Brown horses that had...

    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.

    Your not answering the question I asked. And that is the whole point.

    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...

    I was watching the dressage and noticed such a difference between those tests and a pure dressage test of the same calibre. I agree with Denny that it takes a different type of horse to do x-country...

    Sorry, I only speak Canadian. I can only guess at what your asking.

    For show jumping, eventing or dressage? They do breed for all three.
    Eventing-lots.

    Dressage- I don't know for sure. I...

    No, that is your creation but I am saying that if you use certain Wb horses you will have a much higher chance of getting the characteristics you are looking for because they have been bred for it....

    Your not the only one on this board. It may benefit others.

    But don't tell me what I should and should not be able to read. Just discount it and move on.
