    yeah, the only way of guaranteeing it is to buy it, not breed it;)

    LOL!! I agree with that!!

    Basically even if you find a mare and a stallion that test as homozygous black so have to have a black foal, they might throw a fading black which looks a bit brownish most of the time.

    So yep, buy one **)

    I purchased a true black mare and put her to a true black stallion that had 4 white socks and got a true black colt with 3 white socks and a blaze. Trying this year for a filly!!

    i have one black colt. how funny are black foals... they look so weird. i wasn't sure what colour my colt would turn but he is definitely black. he is by Oakvale Serenade (he has quite a few black kids) and out of a brown mare

    I did spend a fair amount of time researching and all I can say is I was very lucky. I got everything I ordered with all 4 foals. 1 Palomino, 1 buckskin, and 2 blacks. But then as well as temperment I try to breed for colour. It took me two years to get the colt so I'm hoping the mare will go straight in foal this time round. :)*

    nimetyau your colt is gorgeous:)

    I am aiming to breed black with white markings. So far I have a black filly out of a chestnut mare lol - was thinkin I would get bay.

    Got a brown mare with white markings in foal to Frits so fingers crossed for the black foal with white markings:p

    much easier to buy them - unless you have bred a horse I'm not sure that people appreciate the time, effort and sometimes heartache that goes along with it. But I love it. Some foals are so cheap compared to the costs associated with getting them on the ground.

    Remaani - I remember that foal. Thought he was gorgeous. Pity he was greying out. I was lucky enough to have a black and white pinto colt that I have given to Topklass to lease born the same year (or not long after) yours. My friend and I were drooling over your boy and we were so rapted when ours was born.

    i would buy one. but i dont think it would ever be as special as breeding a meg :(

    i so wanted a little foal out of meg. that would have been perfect, so now i have to recreate one.

    can you cross breed fresian?

    just loooked up having two pure black parents - without the red gene. and there is still almost 7% chance of getting a chestnut foal. i think it is going to take a lot of time to breed a meg :)

    of course you can cross breed a friesian! how tall do you want this foal to grow up to be?

    Yes you can cross breed friesians although it is actually against the FPS (Dutch Studbook) rules! However in Australia we do as these foals are the bread and butter of the stud to enable breeders to buy the friesian stock - most have to be imported too as there are very few purebred mares for sale in Australia and filly foals are snapped up quick (usually there is a waiting list for them).

    I myself breed Friesian Warmbloods, these are the crossbreed. My crosses are with TB's at the moment. I am trying to aim for a good allrounds performance horse so thought combining the athletic ability of the TB with the grace of a friesian I will get what I want to achieve. So far it looks like I am on the right track as the foal I have on the ground is lovely (I hope I am not tooo biased:eek:).
