    Woohoo. I just got Zac's DNA results back from Animal Genetics and it is confirmed he is...


    I didn't think I minded either way although when I saw the email my stomach was in my throat... Extremely happy :D

    (isnt it great someone goes and tests their foal to be sure, and many horses go around being called the wrong colour!!) it's not expencive is it? US$25 or something?

    Thanks :eek:. I felt kind of stupid when people asked me what colour my new foal was and I couldn't actually answer them. Plus I needed to know before I could do all his regos (although now I have to figure out what his sock is going to look like - do you just draw in where the pink skin stops? When I got him used to the hose the other day it looked like it is just going to be slightly higher than the coronet).

    The cream testing only was $25 US.
  7. Congratulations! What a bonus!:))

    Congratulations :). I did think he was starting to look more buckskin in the last lot of photos I saw but you can't beat a DNA test under these circumstances.

    You usually take the markings from the white hair; the extent of the underlying pink skin only becomes an issue for dilute rego when the markings are borderline for eligibility.

    Hmm. Might have to wait until his legs go black then. It looks like he is going to have a white coronet on his near hind but don't know exactly how high it will go.

    The moths are starting to get to him already so hopefully it won't be too long before his coat change.

    Definitely. There are enough nice stallions out there and I definitely don't need the hassle of trying to find places to keep a stallion or the other "hassles" associated with testosterone!
