Just out of curiosity, are you considering buying this filly?

Depends. I noticed her left hind leg is showing some swelling. So going to see what the breeder says about it.

I'm going to be the odd man out and say dunskin.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Most bay horses are born without black points. They start shedding in gradually, but often aren't completely black until the horse is two.

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.

Love learning about this stuff there is so much to learn!
Buckskins only carry one dilute gene not two so the foal may or may not be a dilute Dun is also a dilute but not a double dilute.

She tangled with some wire a few weeks ago and her leg is healing up.
