She seems to get cuter everytime you post pictures ButtInTheDirt!!

I'm curious about something though, the angle of her pasterns, is that normal? Do foals grow out of that? Or is it just the picture (the one before last) that makes them look odd? Not criticizing! Just wondering if anyone can clear that up for me?

She's still straightening up. Most foals are born with a little laxity in their tendons and over the first few weeks they straighten up and tighten up until they look 'normal'.

I love how her dorsal stripe is curly! She's got this cute little squiggle down her back.

It is okay, I was actually wondering the same thing! I read about it and it sounded like she was going to straighten up. She only walks weird on one of her feet, but I've seen pictures of foals who don't solidly walk on all of their feet and grow up just fine.

Thank you for clearing it up. I was under the impression that it would get better as the days went on, but a handful of people have expressed concern about it and of course got me a bit worried. But anyone I talked to who has been around foals weren't alarmed and said the same thing.

I'm located in NE Wisconsin outside of Green Bay. Their are only about 4,000 registered Curly horses in the world. I know a couple people that have Curlies in Wisconsin, but most of them are breeders/have multiple.

Oh she is so darn cute. By the way I love your new avatar! Only 1 gait down? The amount of time she took coming out you would think she has all the gaits down.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Okay, I'm NOT a color guru here nor a curly expert. This may be a really stupid question, but I'm just not sure where did she get the blanket from on her rump. Isn't that an appaloosa trait? I know some QH's have it. I don't see a blanket on her dam, is it from the sire or what?

O, color gurus, where are you?

Curlys can carry the LP/PATN genes just like an appaloosa can. They also carry pinto genes as well. She sire was a buckskin curly with a blanket meaning the miss Lala got her blanket from her curly daddy.

The LP/PATN and pinto genes can be expressed in a number of horse breeds. Registered quarter horses have both genes and horses like knappstruppers, sugarbrush drafts, and mustangs also come with appaloosa genes. Horse breeds such as oldenbergs, saddlebreds, clydesdales can come on paint genes as well.
