We are a warmblood breeding farm so we plan to train her until she is sold. Most of our horses are bred for dressage, and we have a few with some jumper genes too. We have 5 (possibly 6) foals coming next year but she is the only one due this spring so she will get LOTS of attention!

Aww she'll be a sweet girl, I would love to get her. I've always wanted to try dressage and jumping... I'm sure she's WAY out of my price range! Lol

How did you calculate it? Given that the sire is brown, and as far as I can see, all his foals have been either brown or bay, I think the chances are good the foal will be brown or bay.

I was always told he was pure black but after looking through his pictures he does seem to be dark brown.

It all comes down to him being homozygous or heterozygous for agouti. If he has two copies of the agouti gene (homozygous), then you are going to have either a bay or a chestnut (given we don't know if he and your mare are homozygous for black too).

She has only had one filly, who is a very dark brown, so that would mean she will be a bay? I tried to follow all of that genetic stuff in college but could never get a handle on it. That's why I went into the hands on stuff for a career ;)

It's really hard to guess. I am certain the foal will be black, brown or chestnut. None of the foals listed for that stallion are red based, which could indicate that he is homozygous for black, but he hasn't produced enough foals to really be able to make that call. I think it is likely the foal won't be chestnut, but not going to bet my house on it. My guess is for a brown foal. Pretty sure the foal won't be bay - the sire is definitely brown, not bay, and brown is recessive to bay.

This is her last foal. The sire was Plasir D'Amour but yeah, dark brown. Still beautiful though!

Well today she seemed a little more at ease, although she set off the breeder alert over 25 times last night.....the woman on watch last night looked like a zombie this morning!

She still tested at a pH of 7.8-8.4 so I think we still have some time.

I'm on foal watch duty tonight and she seems to be raising her tail for long periods of time. Has anyone noticed this happening in their mares?
