    Cool First GERMAN Totilas foal born... Did you see the CHROME?

    http://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendunge...londs2433.html

    Chestnut filly, four high whites and a blaze or am I seeing things?

    Is that dark mare the mother or a surrogate?

    Good question. I think it's the dam? From their website, germanpremiumfoals.com, and from the very little I can understand, they don't seem to do ETs...

    Edited to add: And there's goes the proof that Totilas is not homozygous for black.

    I posted that on the Totilas foals thread. I believe it is a colt, not filly, and the dam is Sir Donnerhall x Rubinstein. Maybe the white comes from the Donnerhall side of things?

    I like this one a bit better than the other one though this one does have a leg up with me in the fact it's not bay. I like the mare A LOT.

    Yep, if the mare with the foal is the dam, that's the side the white came from. The fact that the mare's whites are as high as they are and she's black-based makes it really not all that surprising that a chestnut foal came out this loud If he's been black-based, he'd very likely have been much more minimal.

    Beautiful foal. It will probably be liver chestnut.

    LOL, if only one could tell! Absolutely no way to know. Even if he's shedding really dark at first, that's very, very common with chestnuts of all shades, and most chestnuts don't end up liver (unfortunately LOL)

    Yes, it is a colt named Timotee. Very colorful boy.

    Well here I am relieved! Glad to know the white comes from the dam. I'm one of those anti-chrome freaks.

    It is not the first foal in Germany by him (that was already born on March 14th out of a pretty good Caprimond dam that is also the dam of De Champ at PS and Zucchero. A chestnut filly. Breeder Helmar Bescht.

    Coming back to the colt:
    Germanpremiumfoals is NOT the homepage of the owner/person the foal was born and can be seen in the video clip but of someone else. I was told, that the person behind that homepage had already shown two month earlier a foal to some people and told them ist is by Totilas, which could not have been as there has not been a foal by him at that time in Germany. Beware.

    This is Owner/Breeder (according to the newspaper articles in the homepage) http://www.pferdezucht-brunken.de/

    Default Totillas also has chrome behind him..

    He comes from a long line of blacks with CHROME on the sireline. They all have FOUR WHITE SOCKS AND FACIAL WHITE.

    The fact that any black horse can have 4 socks and a little facial white is ALOT (for black-based-horse) The blacks you see with really high stockings and big blazes are a combination of Splash and Sabino - giving a boost to the chrome.

    So though the white is suppressed (due to black), it is there. DEFINITELY on the Totillas side/sireline. If Totillas was chestnut, he'd be alot blingier.

    Totillas has four white socks a star & snip. Minimal Splash:
    http://www.dressage-news.com/wp-cont...s-ic5u8410.jpg

    Gribaldi has four white socks and huge snip. He's a minimal splash:
    http://www.superiorequinesires.com/s...ibaldiconf.jpg

    Kostolany has four white socks and a star. Again, minimal splash
    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GqVR6iIWuI...kostolany2.jpg

    Hard to say if sabino is really in there somewhere as black really suppresses it. Splash shows up more readily on black-base.

    Love the blingly chestnut by Totillas. How fun!

    Of course, I don't know why I was picturing T as solid

    Yes, of course, what Fancy said.
