You know what? You need to know some stuff.

Don't breed that mare to that stallion again. They are both frame carriers, so the foal will always have a 25% chance to be lethal white. You should NEVER breed frame to frame. Once is an accident. Twice is stupid. A third time is just plain irresponsible.

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.

I'd you read the part that says the stud got out and bred 3 different mares. I didn't breed her on purpose it was accidental and I know all about lethal babies and would never breed her to him knowing that could happen. This post is a fun post about what color people think he could be not a lecture on breeding. Thank you!!!

You have already said that she has had two lethal foals previously. That clearly shows that you have no idea about how lethal foals are created, so I was sharing knowledge that anyone who decides to keep a frame carrying mare on the same property as a frame carrying stallion should know.

I do know about lethal foals. I did not own her when she had the first two nor when she got pregnant this time. I did not breed her to the stud. So your assumptions about my education on lethal foals is not necessary. Again this post is a fun post regarding the color of the colt not a lesson on breeding. Thank you!!!

Do you have any more pics of the sire,almost looks like he has a dorsal ,but it may just be the lighting in pic.If he does I would say he is probably more a Dunalino than palomino. That baby looks more red dun than sorrelThe dorsal seems too pronounced to be just countershading & looks like has some shoulder barring too.

To me she looks like a red dun also, but I'm not really good at the genetics. I'm really glad this foal turned out healthy she is a cutie, good luck with her.
