    Default Re: Pregnant mares, foal gender, and the "nail test"

    I've only bred one foal ever and did the nail test, it was correct, also did it on my friends mare and again it was right, I find it facinating and did it about every 2 weeks on my mare to see if it changed but it always showed filly and filly it was.
