I will be curious to know the results of the test. There certainly is the chance, wouldn't it be something if she had a loud frame foal? :D

Sorry to be ignorant, but what exactly does it mean when a horse is a frame carrier? I have heard this term used a lot before but have no idea what it means. Thanks. :-)

Ok... so this may be a stupid question... but can 2 solids have a loud foal?

Frame is a color pattern. In its most expressed form, it makes the horse look like they were "framed". I could find pictures of frame horses...

Yep, they do happen :lol:

Two Solid quarter horses that produced loud foals are outcrops that used to only be eligible for APHA registration, but the rules have changed now.

Jedi: The "Frame" Overo pattern is lethal in homozygous form... have you ever heard of Lethal White Foal?

Cool when I think of cropout I just think of like abnormally large socks lol not a loud paint! I've heard of solid paints throwing loud foals when bred to regular registry, but never solid to solid! Thats neat... just another example of my ignorance lol :)

My neighbor bred her mare one time. She was one of the best mares ever and had every intention of keeping the foal. Well, she had gotten her at the mare at an auction years ago. They knew nothing of her bloodlines. They bred her a few years back and the foal was lethal white. She died soon after. The mare is fine still, now lame due to a fall, but they never bred her again.
