    Foal
    Vitani Prego

    My sorrel registered mare was recently bred to a very nice blue roan. My poor girl was going to go to slaughter when we got her. Her owners didn't want her do to stifle injury she got from being rode to early. She was only two when we got her and had been rode heavy and A LOT completely broke and calm but all that heavy riding gave her the injury. We bought her from them they had just stopped feeding her after finding out about her leg so she was also malnurished. The only issue was her back legs would lock up sometimes but our vet said all she need is work especially on hills gradually getting long to build up her muscles there so she could control the locking she has not locked up for years now she is now 7 and the healthiest horse we have. She is the sweetest calmest horse I have ever been around its crazy how they just wanted to throw her out. I am so excited about her foal. A horse that would have been gone now has a chance to keep living on. =)

    Not sure about your desicion to breed to the blue roan with how incredibly downhill his build is. When is your mare due?

    Oh, and welcome to the horse forum and I am so glad that you gave your mare a new lease on life

    Thanks. Yeah he is a bit downhill. I searched for months for a good stud. My main reasons for choosing him is he has the black gene so no throwing a sorrel and he has good bloodlines with great temperment. He is 98% foundation and my mare is 100% foundation. Pretty much every stud near by had high butts it bugs me but I had a talk with my vet and he said some cow bred horses will have high buts so they are lower to the ground in the front and being bred with my mare who isnt butt high should mean the foal will come out just fine. I have a VERY butt high gelding I bought from a rescue and it bugs me but I've had the vet come out about him and he said it isnt what people like but there will be no "issues" due to it so I hope he is right. This stud has LOTS of recommendations and I have seen a few of his foals they are even. So crossing my fingers. She is due march 30th 2013

    Is he homozygous for black then? You can have blacks that throw red, because red is recessive it doesn't show. Years back my mom bred to a solid black quarter horse stallion, 3 times we had chestnut foals. The one time we had a black foal was with a black based grey mare, that filly was also a heterozygous black because years later, she produced a chestnut when bred to a bay stallion. So, unless he is homozygous black, you can still get red. ;)

    Then, next year you should have a lovely bay or black running at her side. Hope she doesn't give you too many sleepless nights as so many maidens love to do

    These are his offsprings (the darker ones) there is a buckskin stud there as well that produced the lighter ones.

    He may not be as badly downhill as he appears (although downhill he is). His hind feet are so poorly trimmed as to be almost clubfeet. They are so upright, they may push his haunch up a couple of inches. I am hoping they are just poorly trimmed and not clubbed.

    Yeah honestly I think the people who own him are into all natural. So many people out here that have horses are all about no fly mask no horse blankets no trims no nothing that they wouldnt get in the wild it bugs me but I bet he is like that.
