My Mare had a foal this morning. She is a smoky black with a cream gene and the baby's dad is a red dun. The baby looks to be either a dunalino or palomino. I was wondering if the dunalino always has to have the dun factor markings? My baby does not

Hi Phil. Yes a Dunalino has to have the dun factor markings, like the dorsal stripe, barring on the legs, etc. Can you post some pics of her, and I can tell you if she is or not. My mare is a bay dun, and her filly is also a bay dun tobiano. Congrats!!!! by the way.

Looks like a palomino to me, lucky you, wish my palomino babies were that gold.

Looks like just a palomino to me too. She's cute! When you can, post some better pics. Try to get one her looking down the middle of her back.

She looks like a Gold Champagne to me, she has that sheen to her coat that champagnes have from day 1, and also she has the mottled skin around her nostrils...does she have speckled/mottled skin on her lips and under her tail as well? She is one pretty little girl!
Congrats!
Kathy

I didn't think they made rope halters that small. Where did you get it?

I made the rope halter myself. You can find measurements for small all the way up to draft size horses at http://www.naturalhorsesupply.com/tiehalter.shtml

I used 18 feet of rope but still used smaller measurements than what it calls for for the small pony size horse

Hey Phil, we've made our own horse halters for a while now and love em. Thank you for the instructions as I think we've lost ours. Is there any way to make a lead rope using this material?

I dont know if you can or not, I havent made a lead rope out of that material but I have made one out of the nylon rope they sale by the foot at home depot. I made a 15 foot one cause I couldnt find a lead rope anywhere that was that long, they were all too short or too long haha. I bet there might be a way though you could braid it some how, put a snap at one end and tie if off like you do at the nose part of the halter and then braid it tight until you get it as long as you want and then maybe put a knot at the end and then burn the ends off so they dont unravle??? I dont know, but its got me wondering now.

Thanks Phil, I'm not sure how it can be done, I'll have to put my thinking cap on. I don't like the single strand that I've used in the past, it tends to cut into my hand. Like you said you could braid the pieces... not sure if it would be thick enough yet. I'm just not sure...

If you come up with something, please let me know.

Yes the single strand leads tend to rope burn my hands, especially when i first start teaching the horse to lunge. I have seen the same kinda rope used to make rope halters in a thicker size, I might try something with it, depends on the price cause I have a feeling it would take quite a bit of rope if i was to braid it.

Phil, Marilyn, to make those leadropes, try doing a simple round four strand plait. I have just started trying to make my own rope halters to, but I love working with leather best. If you don't know how to do a round four plait, any good book or site that teaches basic leatherwork techniques would have the instructions. It dosen't matter that it isn't instructions for using rope, the technique is still the same.
