You probably will have to cuddle afterwards!!

What do you mean by sexing? If you mean detremine what gender they are then yes you look under the tail and count the orifices or look between the legs and count the protruberances.

I didnt see it as being too bad. If it is they can delete it. Made me laugh though.

Foals don't grow into a boy or a girl after they are born if that is what you mean... They are born a boy and stay a boy until they die. Same as a girl. Just like a person....

I think you have them confused with chickens. Its hard to tell what a chick is until its older. With most mammals its pretty obvious what sex they are at birth.
IF you asking about choosing the sex pre-insemination via AI, DNA and all the science stuff, I don't think so. not yet

You can control it to some degree but it is not 100%. Depending on when you AI the mare vs. when the semen was collected and when the mare ovulates. I have had some success with it in the past but again not something I would guarantee.
