    Foal
    filly to critique

    Alrite so my fugly mare had her even fuglier baby. I am well aware that the there is basically no market for a 1/4paint, 1/4thpercheron thing and 1/2appendix quarter horse (none that I'd be happy to sell to), so I am pretty much keeping the foal and breaking it out and then selling it. The stud was colored, had a short fat neck, NO butt and long pasterns. My mare also has a block head and short fat neck, long back,and when she isn't in pasture condition she has a nice butt. The foal is pretty big, its about a month old, and it has a nice butt, short, thick neck, and is really butch looking. I know you can't tell much from a foals confo, but could you critique the foal based on discipline? What will she be decent at? And what color do you think she will turn out to be? Thanks

    Foal
    You know, I think she'd kind of cute! :)

    She has a great hind end, and a nice big shoulder. Her legs seems straight (from what I can see in the pics) and she has a cute expression (as do all babies) and cute markings. I would say she's going to turn out to be a light bay, with stockings. Her neck is a little short but it's hard to tell right now whether she'll have the thickness to it.

    She should have a good mind, and be pretty quiet I would say from her breeding... She may make a nice all around horse, for someone to do low level english/western pleasure on.. or possibly a gaming horse?

    If you don't mind me asking... why did you breed the mare to a "fugly" stallion (using your own words) if you think your mare is "fugly" as well?? I think the baby is actually quite cute. :)

    I think she's kidding when she's calling them fugly. Hehe the baby looks like she's got a deer's nose!

    I had absolutely no intentions of breeding her. I don't think mares should be bred unless they have the same qualities I would expect in a stud, and as of right now my mare does not. I had her boarded out and the place she was at had a stallion that bred her.

    I actually think she is really cute, although she looks like she might end up having her daddy's neck.

    I agree that she will be a light bay.

    I thought that might be the case... at any rate, I think she's pretty cute.
