Tica's Foaling Thread **UPDATE** Foal has arrived!
 
Tica is my short and short tempered Paso Fino bred to El Magical del Sultan for a February 14th foal. I don't know much about Pasos (especially bloodlines, hers are supposedly fancy but weren't passed on to me or her last owner I believe) but I'm a sucker for a sweet face and her ground manners are impeccable.

Here she is a few days after she arrived on November 3rd.

So I'm getting a grey foal, that's for sure. Both started out black, I know Tica did, so it should be flashy for a years anyway, haha!

Yep, you'll be getting a gray & being gaited it will be flashy. I had a horse that was born on Valentine's day-his last few years, we just called him Val.

You can still can a non-grey from 2 grey parents if they are both heterozygous grey and there would be a 25% chance of a foal that won't grey out.

Looking forward to a beautiful little paso baby :)

My friend bred her grey QH to a grey QH stud and got a palomino :D The next foal was grey. So who knows?! Should be a pretty little solid chap though! Can't wait :D Good luck!

Lovely!

El Magica Del Sultan was the stud, not Magical. I'd love a little black foal to raise but it wouldn't be a riding horse for me. Don't know anything about showing Paso's and while they are supposed to be very sturdy, I would feel strange on one, as I'm pretty tall foe a woman. XD

Depending on all their color genetics under their grey coats, there could be many colors you could get, but a high chance of getting a foal that turns grey. I know a mare that was born black and turned grey (like your mare) and when bred to a bay stallion (so both parents are black carriers) they produced a chestnut colt that turned grey. It was a 25% chance to get chestnut from two heterozygous black horses and it was a 50% chance of turning grey. Breeding really is a gamble in all aspects :lol:

Haha, a solid chestnut is the one thing I wouldnt be thrilled about, but that's just me. Healthy, sound foal comes before color of course! But gosh would I be kicking myself. ;)
