One more line. This is the sires sires sires sire. I'm sure there's a more technical way of saying that.

Cor De La Bryere - Selle Francais

He was a foundation sire - his sire was a TB and dam was a Selle Francais

You can definitely see the family resemblance! I know nothing about bloodlines, but they're all very nice horses, and Mim is beautiful so this ought to be a great looking baby! Maybe it'll carry on the 3 socks trait too!

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

Hopefully I can unlock its pontential and bring out a jump like any of those sires, Grand Prix here we come.

I'd love two hind socks. As Mim has no white. Haha, here's hoping.

Hopefully only a few more days and you all will be able to get some foal pictures!

I always presumed she was just a TB most likely a OTTB - but she doesn't have a microchip, does anyone know if a racehorse has to be microchipped? (Australia)

And anyway in testing to find out what breed she could be? She does have a small unrecognisable brand and numbers (she's 12y/o, '05)

P.s, still no foal haha.
I believe all registered Tbs had to be micro-chipped after 2003? So if she's an '05 foal and a registered TB she should have a chip. What are her brands? You could always ask on one of the brand search pages if someone could try and trace her. Sometimes if you clip and wet the area it can help make it easier to read. If you don't have any idea of what her registered name is/was it might be hard to trace her. I'm not sure how accurate DNA testing would be and you'd have to hope that both parents were on file somewhere to be able to get a match anyway. I'm in a similar situation with my WB x TB mare, she's got a chip but no brands >.< I did get the name of her apparent sire, but unfortunately papers were lost by her previous previous owner so I have no proof.
Either way, your mare is lovely and hopefully you get a stella foal on the ground sooner rather than later!

OTTBS are definitely chipped especially the ones who raced
