    How so Lilly?

    Is Lilly an alter perhaps? Just noticed that many/most of Lilly's posts are non-horse related posts in Off topic.

    Well, except for the mito and the x chromosome and that is kind of an important part of the conversation. And my whole point. In fact that was part of my original explanation, that the x is unique...

    My original quotes




    I really like this topic but am getting frustrated. All you had to do was scroll up to check and there it is. I clearly stated that it was the female offspring. This is...

    Sorry but wrong. A stallion has only one copy of the x, so there is no crossing over. That was my point in bringing this up.



    Each parent has a 100% chance of transmitting 32 chromosomes to...

    Wrong. We were speaking of dam lines and I said the stallion will pass on his dam's X chrom. 100% of the time to his female offspring. It would be a 50% of the time to all of his offsping if he had a...

    I apologize.
    But yes a person can tell from the pedigree and a short video if the foal is worth looking into. No one can tell if it is going to be a adult success but they should know if the foal is...

    Yes, because everyone born in Europe is honest about the capabilities of their horses. :rolleyes: People are people, on both sides of the ocean. The fact is if you go shopping with a load of cash and...

    Was driving and thinking about horses, which actually might be more distracted then using a cell phone :)

    Something else was bugging me about this statement and it popped into my mind why (not...

    Bingo.
    And that is exactly why you see good bloodlines in Europe for cheap, they understand that even with good bloodlines, you do not always end up with a top product. But they expect more, and...

    The irony is those dogs should not be bred-cross or purebred.

    It is common in the horse world to have improvement blood, or outside blood.

    I agree.
    But not all people that breed a horse are breeders. Some are just individuals with a mare and it is hard to catch up on all the knowledge that you accumulate by breeding. They probably are...

    They have a huge problem with over breeding, average quality horses and horses being dumped off or sold for meat. It is not just a NA trend.

    Not sure you understood my question. I was not doubting the importance of the dam line, I was questioning your statement about mitochondrial DNA and it being responsible for the transmission of gaits...

    Breeders look to a quick hind end to create horses that are more capable at upper levels. It should not all be the front end. That is why so many jumpers are used in dressage breeding, to give the...

    Two things. First of all, as you stated, NH is sold as a system. Yep a packable, DVD, book explaining, all you need is $29.99 for three months "system". Which encourages people that have no clue to...

    I still don't understand how people can assume where she is looking from the camera shot. This is a video, not a brain cam. The camera might have been angled down or she might be used to her chin...

    Then the colt is not disadvantaged, he is not registered. Did you phone them and ask if it going to be a problem to register the colt next year if the dam is not inspected/approved this year? That...

    What registry?
    Is the mare approved with that registry? If the stallion is also approved, most of the time the foals are already accepted. Usually the foals are in a show and are judged but not the...

    Since this has gone OT, I thought I would throw in one more OT statement as this has been bugging me.

    Well, it might be because they are being honest and that they think he is worth what they are selling him for. And they think it would be foolish to import such a horse when they have much better...
