Well according to the lunar calendar I can expect a colt from Penny and Lady and Bella started breeding just before the first quarter moon but had a long cycle and didn't finish until just before the third quarter. So I'm guessing maybe she wanted a colt too and held onto the egg until the moon was right

BTW... here is a nice easy to use lunar calendar with pictures http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_p...calendar.phtml

Yep, It definitely says I'm going to have a colt, which is great because I'm going to sell it as soon as its born regardless of what color it is! If she has a filly, I'd be tempted to keep it, but am just not financially secure to feed three horses, so am going to make the sacrifice(sp?) and wait for my RC foal to drool over, lol. I've got a couple buyers lined up and if that doesn't work out, I will probably list it until it is 6 months old or so, then give it to a young girl who is basically my kid sister. I taught her to ride and am beginning to work with her on working with inexperienced horses, so it would be a great experience for her, then I can do all the hard stuff for her because I'll be right down the road!

BTW, does anyone know how to go about making sure a colt gets gelded other than the obvious, which is to keep it until it can get gelded? Is there some sort of contract or do you just take their word for it? I do NOT want this foal to be a stallion.

You can put it in a contract, but it's not really enforceable...once you sell it you really don't have any control. If you don't want it to be a stallion, than geld it - or better yet, quit breeding colts and just have fillies...

I had my boy gelded at 5 months old. He was up and running around the next day.

Wish I could quit breeding colts, lol. I love mares and always have! If I still have him and he drops, I'll geld him. I don't want to keep him that long, though, lol.

We had Pistol gelded at 3.5 months. As long as both fuzzy plums are there, there shouldn't be any reason (other than major bug season) not to geld.

No need to wait for the drop, the vet knows where to find them.
