Ok, So we've had a TON of HC fillies born here lately! Seemed like last year there was a bunch of colts.

Who has actually had a colt here this year? Luvallbreed's mule is the only one I can think of off the top of my head!

I want a colt! [Yay]

Wow, there are more colts than I remembered for sure! I guess maybe I was wishful thinking. [Wink] (Figuring that if all the babies were fillies, mine would HAVE to be a colt! [Wink] )

So here's another question. Why do some people want one over the other?

I want a colt because I want a nice little gelding. I will definitely take a filly, but I was hoping to avoid the temptation of wanting to possibly breed her 10+ years down the road if she's anything near as nice as her mama. Isn't that silly? Hahahaha!

LOL Tuper I am hoping for fillies all the way around!
I have mostly girls and our one gelding is an *** and a half to everyone but Symphony. We still love him, and so does Symphony but don;t need anything with testicles even if they come off they are still stinking boys with cooties lol

I am still undecided either way. I want a filly because I dont want to have to geld and clean another sheath [Embarrassed]
But I like colts because they are rowdy and silly. Well, fillies are too... [Wink]

But I have 3 geldings now and 3 mares... so I guess it could go either way for me... [Confused] [Question]

The sire of the foal my new girl is having has mostly produced fillies if I remember correctly. But Sugar (mare) has had one colt and one filly so far.

I will be happy with either gender as long as it is healthy, but in a way I want a colt because I wouldn't mind having another great gelding in my life. [Wink] But I do love my mares and three mares would probably do well together, too, so either way I am happy! I am just used to having two of one gender and one of the other gender. [Razz]

It sure does seem like a filly year so far!

I'm hoping the filly trend keeps going until Merry foals! I REALLY WANT A FILLY! I'm dealing with a stud colt that hasn't dropped yet but comeing into his hormones [Bang Head] and I really don't want to have to go through this again with another colt!

I really wanted to a filly. I must admit at present we have 2 geldings on the property a mini', Cooper and a 2 yr old, Chips and they do entertain [Big Grin] . They play and ruff house all day (they are seperated at night). I had to doctor Chips yesterday because Cooper got the better of him in a battle when biting him under the jaw and broke the skin. My fillies don't play much and are pretty lazy. They may chase Cooper for all of 2 min. and they are bored. It is just a much more laid back no nonsense herd with no boys. No need to keep anyone seperate just a bunch of girls and old ladies hanging out. With the exception of Cooper and he does not count at least in their minds....LOL.
Not that I have not met some wonderful geldings one that stayed until his passing, I have and some crazy mares I have sent packing, I have. I just prefer the fillies and the old ladies.

Well...I have 2 geldings right now, and a filly that I want to sell.

I dont particularily have a preference. I dont mind a nice mare That i could breed later on.. but I still like my geldings.
No moodswings, no studdyness... Just level headed geldings.

And LuckE1... that colt is GORGEOUS..did we miss a foal watch??

I wanted, and got, a filly because she is 1/2 Lusitano, which is a breed I just love and is pretty rare in the US still. There is no way I could ever afford a purebred at $20k for a weanling. My hope is to someday breed miss Annie to a Lusitano for a 3/4 Luso. Of course, I am very picky so first I will have to find another one with gaits that I like but who is not grey. I don't want to deal with the melanoma issue on a grey.

I have time though. Luso stallions are being imported more regularly now, so in 5 or so years surely I will find one.

I am drooling over that handsome colt....

I really havent decided what exactly I want Daisy to have... just hoping its healthy.

Question? If you could know what your mare is having before its born would you want to know? and not just sex, but color too?

In a way I would, but I like the element of surprise. Since I dont plan on breeding horses it really isnt that important for me to know.If I have another foal it will be inder the same conditions as my getting Daisy.

Thanks [Big Grin]
Zeusyboy nope, you didnt miss the foal watch. I didn't have one because the mare and foal are at a friends place in another state. I am only up there once or twice a month so getting pictures is difficult.
I bought the mare because her owner had fallen on hard times and could not afford to feed her horses... Plan was to get her healthy and then find her a home. I found out after I bought her that she was bred. I was promised that the breeding report would be done... of course that did not happen. I tried to contact them when she foaled and found their phone numbers were no longer in service. So I tracked down a new phone number, called to ask about the breeding report and got cussed out and hung up on.
I haven't given up on getting him registered, we would really like to show him.

My mare also had a colt. As did the two other mares at my barn who were bred.

I wanted a filly; but I love my colt now that he's here. Mostly I'm just glad that his Mom survived and they are both healty and happy now.

Serenity had a gorgeous, healthy sorrel solid Paint filly with lots of chrome on May 30th. I'm tickled all over by "Remedy" and she's all I ever wanted and more. I didn't care what gender she was, but personality was something I really cared about. Well, she's got an awesome personality and also is well built and a nice mover. She's going to make me one heck of a cow horse!

I also have two other 2008 fillies I rescued from a feedlot early this month. So I have FIVE mares/fillies at my place. No geldings, colts, or stallions. Haha.
