Emmy is an Auntie, what color is the baby?
 
As we have no foals here this year, I have been waiting for Gracie, full sister to my Emmy to have her baby, and she has had a beautiful colt

How did he miss getting some white on him?

NdAppy 05-16-2013 10:41 AM

lol luck of the draw. He might still be a frame overo carrier though since daddy is and he had a 50% chance of getting it.

Golden Horse 05-16-2013 03:52 PM

OK, so if he keeps his nuts, unlikely, he could be responsible for a olws foal later on, with the wrong cross? that is sneaky

NdAppy 05-16-2013 04:09 PM

Yep! That's one reason it's so important to test breeding stock that have the chance of having frame.

Coincidentally to what NdAppy said, Abby did still inherit frame.

Ah, there is nothing that makes my heart sad like a solid paint bred! :)
A good horse is never a bad color.....but I sure do love the spots on both stallions in this post!

Except the second "stallion" is a mare. :lol:
