Holy Cow. ()

Perhaps I should test her...


Stella is doing an awesome job hiding this belly;


From the side; She just looks like she's fat from this angle.


Don't she look great for being 18 years old and in foal.

Shes gorgeous! That foal is going to be just beautiful! I love the little sporty ponies :) Will you Dressage the foal?

I love sport ponies too. Yes, if everything goes well, the foal - if it shows talent for it, will be used for Dressage.

If it will be too small for me to ride, then I will use it for driving. lol.

I would add that daddy to be also looks to be carrying some color genes. You could potentially get a lot of white on your baby, if it is highly expressed

It is one thing to inherit the pinto genes, but you can never predict how it will be expressed ;)

I would if I were you. LoL. My mare (a paint) carries both frame and splash. The only splash she expresses is on her face, a big blaze and white under her lip. And your mare has alot more white then my girl!

That would be nice, imagine a palomino stallion with lots and lots of white.

But of course, I will be more than enough happy if everything goes well and the baby and my mare will be fine and healthy.

ClaPorte432, To get the horse tested, you pull some mane, and send it in?

This is the site I went through for my testing. It's only $25. And you'll want to test for the Splashed White.

Horse Tests

I'm not sure if there is a testing center overseas that would be easier for you or not since I'm in the USA?

Thanks!

I've read somewhere that it's actually cheaper for me to get the test done overseas.

Very true! My mare is registered APHA, although she's solid...but take a look at her face...and she does have 1 white tootsie Mom was a buckskin QH, but dad was the Paint, he was an overo.
