    Default Poll: Is this a filly year ... or a colt year. (Fillies are STILL winning!)

    Let's see what the numbers show!!!

    The numbers after each are if you had multiple mares ... e.g., you had 5 mares that foaled ... geddit?

    Ha! That's 3 fillies to one colt. I predict it will be a filly year!

    I have 4 fillies and 2 colts and 2 left to foal. I hope I voted right. Now my clients have 4 colts so far out of 6 mares....

    The last 2 years were all filly years, and so far this is a colt year. 3 on the ground are colts and we have 1 more to go any day. This all from the same stallion too!

    The numbers at our farm are too small for any reliable stats... one filly so far this year and one (MINE!! MINE!!) will probably go within a week. I so want a filly!

    I really hope it is a filly year, at least here. Last year, one foal at the farm, a colt. In 2005, three colts.

    I have bred 5 foals in my life - ALL have been fillies.

    This year I broke the mold with a BAY filly, though. The previous 4 had been chestnut fillies (even though 2 were by a grey stallion and one of those out of a bay mare!)

    A friend of mine wants to know my secret! LOL I just don't know what I will do when I have a colt - it will be strange!

    This year has been a filly year so far - 3 foals - 2 fillies 1 colt. Mares in Ireland are still to foal so I'm hoping the trend continues.

    Last year was an insane colt year out of 7 foals 6!!! were colts

    I have to wait until Rubi foals to vote. But so far at the farm where my girls are foaling we have had 3 colts. Two more mares are due (my Rubi and an Escudo mare). I am doing a frantic fillt dance for ms Rubi!

    I just added 3 colts and 2 fillies. We were delighted to see colts this year, they're the first ones we've had since 2003.

    Numbers didn't let me go high enough but so far from our mares and customers theres 6 fillies and 3 colts.
    Quality doesn\'t cost it pays.

    Ah, but that is only for the "internet fillies"
    BTW, I had another gorgeous colt last night but can't add him to the poll.

    Still waiting (that's good - she's only at day 317). I want a colt (because baby will be sold - boys are easier to sell), but have a feeling it's going to be a filly. If so, it would be my first filly & I wouldn't complain too loudly.

    Well, Ringo's 4th and last was born last night and it's a 4th cold. So that's 4 for 4 for me! I already entered 3 in the poll since I can't add the 4th.
