    I agree with that said about the foals that look like little horses. These ones look all balanced and well-shaped but inevitably end up awful. A foal should look like a foal, with proportions of a...

    What you describe could well be black. Black horses are often born a lavender mousy colour, and they eventually shed out black.
    How old is the foal, and what is his colour like now?

    I would love to see photos of this new foal! As a breeder of eventer in NZ (now I breed Hanoverians but still have some lovely old TB event-bred mares), I am interested to know their breeding.

    I believe she is referring to keeping both the pinto filly that she already owns and the newly purchased chestnut Trak.

    JB, some more foals by the stallion.

    Chestnut filly with no leg white at all, but has a blaze that is lop-sided and falls off the side of the nose. Also there's a small isolated patch of white on...

    Not to appear rude, but why are you so hell bent on seeing evidence of hock arthritis being passed to offspring?

    It has been pointed out that passing on her arthritis is not the worry here.

    Mild hock arthritis does not prevent a horse from cantering, or from cantering correctly. Surely your mare's arthritis must be considered more than merely mild?

    Also, it is not the early-onset of...

    Carrying foals 2 years running can result in a much bigger belly the second time round. I wouldn't worry but if you have a link to some photos that might help people discuss this case with better...

    Thanks JB!

    Sadly the black and white foal with the one pure blue eye was born very early, the result of a placentitis mare. She was quite compromised and was euthed at 2 days old. So no more...

    Splash gene in Clydesdales?

    I was wondering if splash is found in Clydes?

    Is the mad roaning, lacy colour on Clydes due to White?

    This came to mind when looking at a friend's 2 new foals.

    The two foals are by the same...

    Melissa, I've no idea if that holds for gaining height, but keeping them full but lean certainly helps in avoiding growth-related leg issues like OCD.

    100 years ago I bred a very fine, tiny 15.1hh TB mare to a chunky, carty, 16.3hh Hanoverian. The little TB mare came from a refined and none-too-tall pedigree.

    Resulting colt grew to 17.1hh.

    Kathleen, it seems like you are genuinely trying to resolve the matter. What of the buyer's time/travel costs in shipping him, and the cost of keeping him for a month?
