Were Texas Gem's ears always like that? What could possibly cause that?

She wasn't born that way, but she had cysts removed from her ears as a yearling and they wound up floppy.

It is also possible for lop ears to be hereditary. Lop ears are considered a fault in every horse breed so they have been mostly bred out and are much rarer now than they were in the past.

I wonder how much Texas Gem's hearing is affected by the flop, if at all.

GHF foal #7 is an Uncle Mo colt out of Indy Groove. Indy Groove won the G3 Arlington Matron and was placed in the G1 Del Mar Debutante. She has been unlucky as a producer but her foals have been talented, so we keep plugging. Indy Groove will be bred to Munnings.

GHF babies are coming rapidly! #8 was born last night, an Arrogate filly out of Sly Storm. Sly Storm won Sprint stakes at Keeneland and Monmouth as a 3yo, then was stakes placed a few times at Saratoga. She will be bred to Kittens Joy.

@Tachyon, I came across this on Facebook. Do I understand it correctly? Ginger Punch was bred to Chrome and she had a filly? I thought Ginger Punch was in Japan. Was she shipped back here to be bred to Chrome? If so, I'm delighted a mare of her quality was bred to him. Chrome has been receiving some Japanese visitors of late.

According to JBIS, Ginger Punch has not had any foals by California Chrome. Her 2019 foal is by Lord Kanaloa.

@lurkey mclurker, ah...a fantasy racing account. Now I understand. Somebody posting their wishes about a mating between Chrome and Ginger. Thank you so much for responding back and clearing up the mystery. Back in the real world, Chrome has received some Japanese visitors recently, so maybe fans' imaginations are running in interesting new directions. :lol:
