String test for determining sex of foal
 
I know I've read about this, and to make sure I didn't bias the result I've just run the test without checking what the answers should be.

I took a nail, hung it on bit of string and went and held it over Destiny, and it swung in circles, Appy Gilmore, no swinging at all, good job, he's a gelding:lol: Ace definite backwards and forward swing, Alto, no movement at all, once again good job seeing he is baby daddy to one of the foals.

Now then which way round is which?, a quick google search shows both answers for both sexes:roll:

If I was put in a corner and hit until I admitted it, I would love Ace to have a filly, Destiny, mmm not so worried.

We say round and round for girl, side to side for boy.

I used it on my cousin the other day and it said girl. Her ultrasound the next day said boy! :lol:

We did a test like this in my psychology class.. its all in your head :lol:

Seriously though, you will subconsciously move the string whichever way you want the result to be.

That's why I didn't check which way the string should swing:lol: I didn't want to influence it, and if I DID want to influence it, it would show Ace giving me a filly.

Ohh ok, gotcha. Sorry, I guess it would help if I read the post right! lol

Ok, having watched many of my good friends do this repeatedly during each of their pregnancies (much to my disbelief) I feel qualified to answer this ha ha.

Up and down means boy, round and round means girl. If it helps to remember and isn't too crude, up and down is kinda like a pee-pee and round and round is kinda like a ha-ha. :shock:
