    Foal
    Well I wont know what he's capable of until he's older, but looking at him now I think he seems pretty nice. Nobody can predict what he will be, any foal is a gamble. I am still looking around as well, new foals pop up constantly. She wont budge on $1,500 if I do payments until he's weaned.

    My advice would be to walk away. The 'you pay for the test if you want it' thing is a way for her to not have to disclose the results. If she has him tested, morally she has to disclose if he's a carrier. If you have him tested, she can always claim you didn't share. That to me is walking a too fine line on ethics.

    There are many nice colts out there from ethical breeders who will work with a buyer. In fact, I don't know many breeders these days who don't take payments if asked.

    No, there is only a 50% or a 100% chance of having a gene. The sire can only pass on the dun gene 50% of the time because one of his parents was not dun, automatically meaning this sire only carries one copy of it.

    That being said, I also don't think he's dun or bay. I would say he's brown. Brown foals are typically very dark along the back the way he is and his muzzle looks to be lighter.

    Either way, he's a lovely little colt. Good luck to you and your possible purchase and I agree with DR: your sensibility needs to be rewarded.

    Oh I know most breeders accept payments until a foals weaned, I guess im just having a hard time find the quailty I want for my budget.
