Nail test- just for fun**

So the nail test, it was right for my last mare and I just wanted to see how many people have used it? Was it pretty accurate for you? I know it's not a definite gender teller, but it is fun :). Tie a nail to a horse hair or string and hold it over your mares hips, if it spins in a circle it's a filly, back and forth it's a colt. Did it twice with my mare so far and it still says colt. What do yours say? Will be fun to guess and also to see if its right for you

We had a mini mare that came to us bred - only foal we've had - and when we did the test on her it was right (filly)

Not to be a Debby Downer, but if you do the same thing with just a nail and string, you can control the movement of the nail by thinking about it. If you picture the nail going back and forth in your head, it will. Same with circling. Your brain sends very minute impulses to your nerve endings that are enough to make it move.

No downer at all, I know it isn't a definite thing just for fun . I hadn't thought of any specific gender as I really prefer a filly, but either gender is fine with me. I just thought it would be fun to try it and to see the if it matches the end result.

I say, if you want super accurate results, just make a stand for the nail and string, place it over the hips, and let it decide whether it wants to spin or go back and forth? LOL
