    What about smokey black? The sire is a palomino and so it could have a cream messing with a black coat. I just don't see enough red tint in the body to make me believe he is bay or brown ;)

    Mom is doing great. The second picture has mommy's belly in the edge to the right.
    The first picture has his buddy in it. We call him Big Guy

    Foal
    Sorry it has been so long since I posted. I have been dealing with a bulging disc in my neck. I will know August 16th if I will need surgery or not.
    I really don't want surgery but I am having weakness in my left arm and the Dr says it will only get worse. The pain is being controlled by steroid injections.
    I have had one Dr tell me that I will not be able to ride any more after I have the surgery and I have also had another Dr say that I can.
    They will remove the disc and fuse the spine if I have surgery.

    Anybody know if you can ride after this type of surgery

    I think this foal is black or smokey black (can't tell without testing). He looks too uniform in color for bay/brown to my eye with not enough red tint as a newborn.

    Silver chrome I think it depends on the type of surgery and what they actually do to correct. Most I've known haven't quit riding just perhaps changed disciplines or mounts. My brother had spacers inserted and disks replaced and once he is out of his brace in 4 months he will increase his PT and should be able to ride at the 6 month mark.

    Foal
    Thank for the information QtrBel.
    My surgery will be a disc removal and fusion. There is not any place here that I can find that does replacement. I wish there was.
    I have been showing a little but mostly trail riding

    "Spinal Fusion survivor" ... mine was 30 years ago .. i'm sure technology has vastly improved since then... I'm 50 and still ride.

    Positive attitude! And if you want to talk, let me know.
