Foal = baby horse
Colt = Male baby horse
Filly not philly = female baby horse
;)

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I was wonder how this thread could possibly be 3 pages long. Apparently we went a little off topic!

=)

My 2 cents; if it uses slices of bread, then it's a "sandwich."
If it's on (in?) a long tubular type roll, it's a "sub" (or possibly a hoggie - no wait, I think a "hoggie" is the kind of bread that a "sub" is made with... oh never mind, I don't know what I'm talking about.)

Lol

And anything round are buns...some call them sliders.

Going back the OP's question.

I can understand the confusion. A lot of older American books refer to foals of both gender as 'colt', with then clarification such as 'horse colt'. Off the top of my head, I can clearly remember Flicka being referred to as Rocket's colt, and also a reference to a 'colt' in Misty that was a filly too.

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.

Exactly ... I followed my memory south from PA. And speaking of bread, you can't get a good Keiser roll down here.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Omg ditto here, I also thought that all flea bitten grey's were arabians because the horse I was riding was a flea bitten arabian. The workings of a 6 year old mind *shakes head*

I know some adults that still think that! Before my foal was born, people kept asking if my mare had her "pony" yet. All I could think of was "I sure hope not, I'm hoping for a horse!"
