    Who is handling him? Horses read off the handler's nerves. The handler may not notice that they are behaving differently when they take the horse into the ring. Ringside, no pressure, everyone is...

    I would've thought by his age the stallion would be showing considerably greater signs of the disease by now if it was indeed DSLD. And since he's such a popular stallion he must spend most of the...

    Those photos show his head and neck better. You're right, he has a little cheeky pony face! His neck really is set on very low. The first photos are misleading, he looked to have a stocky, thick...

    I agree. This would not acceptable for me either. I have a 20 year old mare that's had 11 foals, her pasterns are not dropped at all. My advice would be to steer clear.

    I can't tell a lot from those photos I'm afraid.

    But from what I can see, he looks to have a very thick-set neck. It's a good length but ties in low toward the chest, making it very broad -...

    I feel your confusion! :) Equine colour genetics can be a messy thing to get to grips with.

    DW and sabino are not associated - one does not need the other to make white markings.

    Not so long...

    Also, just because your foals to date have not been unlucky enough to be OLWs does not mean your stallion does not carry it. As a stallion owner and breeder, you need to be informed so you can make...

    Dominant White is not recessive. Unlike recessive chestnut, you only need one DW allele to be passed to make a DW foal.

    It is possible that the flashy brown colt is a minimally marked DW and if...

    There are a decent handful of Negro foals/pregnancies here in NZ. I'm unsure about the number of straws used but I know the breeders were pleased with the quality of the semen.

    Ah yes Kyzteke - you summed up me and my grumpy-faced mare perfectly! A LOT of foul facials until she 'agrees' that what you're doing is ok with her. To the uninitiated it looks very scary indeed. ...

    I have an adult faux-dominant mare here. Completely bottom of the pecking order with the horses. Totally herd bound, hates disruption to the norm, such as horses coming and going. She is an...

    It is important that you refer to your horses' colour by the correct term. It is misleading to call them Overo. APHA currently has no tick-box for Dominant White so they are incorrectly lumped in...

    Crosscreek, it may pay you to make a cup of tea and settle into reading one of the many well-written equine colour genetics blogs. The info may be a bit dry but just chew off a bit at a time! :) As a...

    Twisting, I ask because I have an all-white DW mare. She is the product of a new mutation from non-DW parents/lineage. She is the world's first (only) DW studbook Hanoverian. Genetically she is...

    JB, how do you know what Extension the DW is linked to? Is it different for each horse, each DW variant (e.g. W5, D15, etc), or is it 'unknown until it's known' by looking at a number of offspring...

    I find it helps to not lift the leg too high off the ground. Try trimming the hoof with the foot lower, toward the ground and not pulled all the way up near the belly. It's not as easy for the...

    It seems that mares can drop another follicle shortly after ovulating, and if there is viable sperm still present it can be fertilised. These secondary follicles must be difficult to see/assess...

    I have done it both ways. I leased a mare when I was starting out because I could not afford to buy this level of quality. I have also leased out two of my mares to two different breeders.

    Friend's mare foundered post-foaling. Suspected that it was actually underway before foaling but mild and not pick up. Foaling was uneventful, no retained placenta, but she foundered badly. She was...
