As foaling season seems to be starting again I suddenly remembered this thread.

And the results are

Destiny, predicted a filly, had a colt

Ace predicted a colt,. Had a filly

It was right about Mr G, he hasn't foaled yet

I tried it for the first time this year on 2 mares, one we are not sure is in foal (need to have vet check her) she would be due in 6-8 weeks and she should be having a filly, the other due is May should have having a filly too. It said my open mares were open...lol

I know people who SWEAR by this.

Up and down means boy, round and round means girl. If it helps to remember and isn't too crude, up and down is kinda like a pee-pee and round and round is kinda like a ha-ha.
What is a ha-ha? Is that like a horse's hoo-hoo?

This test is good fun, especially at a baby shower. However, as pointed out, it is not exactly accurate. It's a 50% chance

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
