    Default Rare White Standardbred Born (Photos)

    Photos at the link.

    http://www.standardbredcanada.ca/new...bred-born.html

    Excerpt:

    USTA registrar Janet Terhune has confirmed that the white foal is, in fact, the progeny of Art Major and Coochie Mama and that no interloping stallion was involved. “DNA testing indicates that Art Major and Coochie Mama qualify as parents of the white foal,” says Terhune. “Parentage verification is a requirement of all Standardbreds before they can race, have registered progeny, or transfer ownership.”

    There have been about 200,000 Standardbred foals born of bay parents since the birth of a white filly named Historically Unique in Ontario on April 30, 1998. Racing fans and horsemen could easily go a lifetime and never see a white Standardbred.

    I beat you by several days on this one, Mike. I found the genetics part rather interesting. There have been several white horses in the last 20 years, enough to create a new colour designation of White rather than listing them as grey with albino markings as had to be done with Mr Clean 20 years ago.

    Let's pitch in and send him a case of sunscreen as for a birthday present.
    Look at that pretty pink nose you know he is going to need it.

    I wish him luck on the track the field could use some variety, Haanson didn't win but just to qualify for that field says a lot.

    I may go see him next Tuesday. They're holding a press conference on the farm. It's a beautiful place - also the home of Dr. Patty Hogan's equine clinic. The huge pastures are full of bay mares and foals - and this little dude.

    I hope you do, and then share photos with us!

    What a neat little horse. I tend to not like cream/white/light colored horses, but this one is adorable, especially with the red!

    ...And ask whose decision it was to name that poor mare 'Coochie Mama'.

    He sure is a cute little guy, though.

    Is that the grey mare? Did I meet you when Patty took her in?

    Melanoma is common for GREY horses, not white ones as far as anyone knows
