What color was the sire? The foal looks like a very "adult" shade of black in the first picture, and looks like he might have "goggles" at 4 months- I'm wondering if he's actually black going gray? For that to be the case, the sire would have to be gray, since obviously the dam is not I don't see dun or silver on the baby, but as a disclaimer I get thrown off by foal coats sometimes!

Did you just get her? Her hooves are disturbingly underrun, long, and chipped.

Her daddy was a chestnut overo paint... Very irresponsible breeding in my opinion!

I'm just glad to have gotten the mom when I did!

Why irresponsible? Do the sire and mare both carry frame?

The owner had 1,001 horses. And doesn't care well for any of them but her favorite. All of hers are either wormy, underweight, had badly trimmed feet, or a combination of all. She also was very abusive and rough with her horses... She sold the mare pregnant as a non-registered POA, promising the baby could be registered as a sport horse. Babys sire, is a registered paint. Then magicaly appeared with the mares papers, and turns out she is a quarter pony!

Ah, gotcha.

Just the way that other post was worded, it sounded like the breeding was irresponsible solely because the sire was an overo...and of course my mind went straight to OLWS. Lol.

Poor dear. I'm glad you got her then. She looks like a very useful mare once you get her all straightened out, and her mane is beautiful!
