I was expecting a foal, but the mother lost it. i found a nice paint filly for sale. She is only a month or so old and looks beautiful. This is the mother. the owner bought her this way, was told it is hunters bump. It looks terrible and prevented her from her from being broke. The foal looks lovely at this point. Im wondering if this inheritable. http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2993676200101117997nQkSWu

I have no clue if it is inheritable or not, but that is definitely a roach back, not a hunter's bump. I've seen two other horses with roach backs, one gelding and one mare. From my understanding it is something that they are born with, not something that they develop later on.

Hunter's bumps on the other hand are something that develops usually due to some sort of trauma/injury and from what I've seen is not anywhere near as severe as a roach back.

I have always but told that roach back will be pass on to the offsprings and I know that I would not breed anything that has a roach or comes from roach back lines . But that is just me

yes, roaches are inheritable, just as any other conformation fault is
