    I'm so glad you got in touch with the vet and especially that the vet will come out in case of emergency!

    Have you got any pictures of the sire?

    No. I emailed the sire's owners and they asid that they have no pictures. I do have pictures of 2 of her previous foals but the pictures ar't very good quality. Which leads me to believe she was backyard bred. But the sire is suposed to be a big non-fading black QH

    Here are the 2 pictures the previous owner sent me of her foals. The first one is one of her palimino foals. She had 2 pally's and the 2nd is her roaned out son.
    ~her 1st baby was a pally (not sure of gender but I know one of the pally's was female!)
    ~2nd baby was the roaned out horse. And he was a colt
    And 3rd was a pally and not sure if it was male or female.

    Woa. That roaned out one has horrid conformation. Look at that but/hip comared to the shoulder/front legs!

    Anyway, good luck with your soon-to-be foal!

    Yeah not sure if it's confo or if he was just super fat. And he is leaning. I'm not good at confo so I couldn't judge when I got to go meet him. However the baby will just be my new pleasure horse. And a learning experience. So I wont be doing much with it. However the roaned out horse was super sweet. The owners offered to let me meet the stud but he was down the road. And I told them yes but they never took us to meet him. So maybe they were hiding a poorly confirmated(?) stud?

    Really terrible pic for critiquing conformation. Wonky angle, wonky pose (or lack thereof) just really all around wonky, LOL

    Yeah I wish they had better pictures to give there horses more justice because they really were pretty. Idk about confo wise though. However I hope the baby comes out looking more like the roaned ones color and the pally's build.

    Ok I have a question. What difference does comfo have any way? Does it make them a better horse with good comfo? Does it mean they listen and ride better? Really and if so then who is the just of that?
    Just asking because only place I never heard anything about comfo was in this horse forum. So I would really like to know.

    Confo is the result of careful, and monitored breeding. Better conformed horse = less issues with injuries. (That can be prevented.). This also helps later in time with riding, to tack fitting, and overall soundness of the animal in question. IMHO.

    She's looking good so for. :)
