So I'm hoping to put a down payment on a unborn foal in a couple of days. I've never actually bought an unborn foal (it's really just a couple of dividing cells right now ) so I was hoping someone could offer some help...?
The foal is Dressage bred, possibly also with a mind suitable for show jumping and trick training (no rearing, mind you). They've had foals out of this pair before and they've been exceptional in temperment and type. And 100% coal black!
This is the sire: Zayin, 16.2hh 4yr Friesian Stallion
In Piaffe, four years old:
As a three year old:
I have NO decent pictures of the dam. She's a true-black Morgan mare, about 14.2hh. She's trick trained and demonstrated but the barn was too dark for my camera to behave properly. Super cute too
Foal will be registered with the Friesian Blood Horse Registry. I figure while it's busy developing I'll be busy with Divo. The lady I got him front recommended a trainer in...Iowa I believe it was, who also worked with their stallion. I'm hoping to train Divo in Driving and Dressage
THEN while the foal is growing up, I can do shows and what not with Divo, in addition to messing around with the lil' colt/filly. Then when he/she is old enough it too will go to a trainer to be schooled in Dressage, then later in Driving, and so on and so forth.
