Re: 2018 Keeneland November Sale

Also, why do color breeders try to sell their horses at racehorse sales? A bay TB, no matter how good a ~sporthorse~ they are supposed to be, would get laughed out of the ring with a catalog page like this http://apps.keeneland.com/sales/Nov18/pdfs/4300.pdf Oh man, that page has me literally laughi...

Re: New Conformation Photos

That isn't how it works in Thoroughbreds. Grey is a color modifier. If one parent is grey then every foal has a 50% chance to be grey. Of course there can be homozygous grey Thoroughbreds, Linamix, Swing Til Dawn, Al Hattab, are a few I can think of. 25% chance of being grey is one parent is hetero...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Funtastic , the longest shot of the Chad Brown quartet, upset the United Nations (gr. IT). He's by More Than Ready out of Quiet Dance, making him a half to the late Saint Liam and Quiet Giant (the dam of Gun Runner). Just when I thought that family couldn't get any hotter, they pop out another G1 w...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

I think that fraud wouldn't have been that hard, and likely wasn't done on purpose to add color to the breed. Say someone in 1920 has a decent mare, they take her to a reputable place and a good stallion. She foals, but the foal dies young. Owner doesn't want to be out the money, so they go to the l...

Re: The greatness of a nation and its moral progress

That's not how it works, though. Animal ownership isn't a zero sum game. The sentence makes as much sense as "Thoroughbreds get sold to racing ownerships, taking the place of a mustang that ends up euthanized." That's true, at least at that stage in a horse's life. After their racing career is over...

Re: The greatness of a nation and its moral progress

This is a thought I've had. With basically every other animal species in the U.S., there is an overpopulation "outlet". Dogs and cats that nobody wants end up at shelters, most of which eventually euthanize unwanted animals and are government sponsored. Tens of thousands of dogs and cats are euthani...

Re: 2018 foals

The people around her know what they're doing, but for my own education, question: How long would they wait before giving a mare whose labor isn't progressing a shot to help her contractions? Would they do that at all with mares like they do with people? Depends on the farm, but oxytocin (a drug th...

He/she looks alright, a little more slow than some but ok. It's normal for them to be "jerky" like that.

Yep, underneath the video in the "Bonus foals at Edition" section they posted the video. The mare in the stall is Its In His Kiss.

Re: What does "stamp his get" mean?

On the biology side of things, "stamping his get" can be related to the heterzygosity/homozygosity of his genetics. If a stallion is strongly linebred, or his dam and sire were similar (both short, both fine boned, whatever), then his genetics will all be similar, in a sense. He'll produce offspring...

Re: 2018 foals

I wonder what their protocol will be if something goes wrong. Of course I hope all involved stays safe, but things can happen. I assume they'd just turn off the cameras and update later? I love watching Country Life Farms' live stream each year. I'm too cheap to pay for stablemates to watch Winstar's.

For two YEARS? :o That's just..... :? I'm a long, long time lurker. I'd try to register every few months, and it never worked. Then by some random Christmas miracle, here I am! The only other place I'm active in is r/horseracing, but as previously mentioned it's pretty slow (slower than here). I've...

Re: Other Racing Message Boards?

I also don't really know how much social media contributed to the "demise" of this place. It's impossible to reset your password (I'm logged onto 1 place permanently and can't reset it). New people (or people from the past after multiple server crashes) can't register without woe. A lot of the smar...
