So my mare Cinnamon is about 278 days along now. She is a maiden red dun QH. She is bred to a Homozygous Tobiano warmblood stud. I have done the nail on a string test and it says filly over and over again. My vet also practices holistically. He had his own method of the nail and string test, and said filly as well. I was wondering if there is a way to tell colt or filly based on how the mare carries the baby? I have heard this for people, and wondering if there is something similar for horses?! She carries the baby mostly on her left side. I can also only feel the baby move on this side as well. I try on the other but don't have very good luck. Thanks for looking!

Dorothy- I have thought about an ultrasound. How much do they run typically?

Jan- Thanks! I am hoping for fun colored sporthorse. Honestly, I dont care what I get. I will say that my gut tells me a filly. I cant see her with a colt for some reason. Shes a big stout girl, but very girlie. Thanks for all your predictions! Whatever gender it is, it sure likes to kick me while she eats!

Ultra sounds here run about 50.00 plus 45.00 for the trip out so your looking at 100.00. Your mare is not far off from mine we are at day 298. It will be a beautiful baby what ever you get. My nail and string test says filly for me also Well see

Sex prediction needs to be done in the 63rd-ish day, it is my understanding.

Thanks Jane! I think I am just going to wait and be surprised. She is 280 days today, healthy and happy. I think if I told my vet I wanted an ultrasound just because I am curious he would shoot me. I guesssss I'll try and have patience. haha.

Amanda, you mean when the mare is around 63 days along? I'm WAY past that now!oops... I am just having fun and learning about what some opinions are on the way a mare carries vs. the sex of the baby.
