    If you want to ride her then ride her. I have ridden mares right until they bagged up pretty heavy. It will be good for the mare to get alittle exercise as well. I would much rather ride a pregnant mare than a mare with a foal ot her side.

    You can't tell by looking if she is hiding cream, grulla hides cream. Although it is also possible it was a mistake and the foals were dun (bay dun) rather then buckskin dun, OR they may have gotten the cream of the sire.

    I don't know how much you know about breeding but the mare is the one that gets the cream of the sire!!

    The only way grulla is hiding cream is if she's smokey black underneath, which can be hidden on a normal horse and be mistaken for black. If she was palomino, buckskin, cremello, perlino or smokey cream, she would not be black dun, it wouldn't be possible. Cream doesn't hide underneath dun, it "co-habitates" with it.

    My money is on her being bred to a cream and agouti based stud, or someone being mistaken on the color of the foals as dun can easily trick an uneducated eye to thinking buckskin.

    It would definitely help if we knew the color of her parents, but c'est la vie! It'll be fun to see what color the foal comes out anyway!

    It's not the dun that would hide it, it's the black, and since grulla is black dun, she could very easily hide it. You can't tell by looking, black (dun or not) covers it up.

    Sorry for not posting any responses until now. I live in the boonies and only have satellite internet. We had storms yesterday and storms + satellite internet = no service.

    The son in law's stallion was bred to two different mares, but they were both sorrels. They each had a sorrel foal and then the mare my son in law bought also had the bay paint, after having the sorrel paint.

    As for the foals out of my mare - I never saw them and am having to rely on what the previous owner tells me. She's not very knowledgeable about horses, though she'd never admit it. The previous colts could have been pretty much anything - the previous owner thought my old mare was a buckskin, and she was a classic bay!

    I am quite sure Dancer is pregnant - we've had her nearly a year now - brought her home 07/11/09. Son in law turned the stallion in with her about a week later, and they put on quite a show. She's starting to make a little bit of a bag and her belly has dropped. You can also see the foal kick the tar out of her once in a while. She's probably due in 2-3 weeks. Or a little longer. I don't know a lot about pregnant mares and never claimed to.

    As for riding her,

    I don't dare! My daughter rides her very lightly - just a little light trail riding. The mare hadn't been ridden in a very long time before we got her - nearly two years. She pitched a bucking fit when the previous owner got on her, but has never given us any trouble. I've been on her a couple of times, just to sit. The problem is, I'm a short, VERY FAT old lady. I weighed nearly 300 when we first got Dancer. I'm down to about 255 now, but I'm afraid I'm still much too heavy for her, or pretty much any horse. Still working on it.

    I'm really jealous that the daughter can ride her. One thing the previous owner didn't mention about the mare, and it's a pretty important detail IMHO, but Dancer single foots. When she hits that stride, she just floats along. Daughter says it's even more comfortable than her own mare's gaits, and daughter's horse is a Paso Fino. Go figure.
