Andalusian Stallion

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Here is an update from a thread I posted awhile ago of my coachs new colt
http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=187497

Well I finally got to go see him, and now as a stunning 3 year old stallion. Couldn't get a bad shot of him. And he is a SWEETHEART to boot.

Enjoy

He's gorgeous!


I have a question, it's kind of an odd one. Does he have any melanomas?
post #8 of 12
He won't have melanomas as a three year old, they take much longer to develop (normally); and whether or not he will develop them depends on ALLOT of factors.

Is he still a stallion?
(your other post mentioned he had been gelded).

Otherwise I have a lovely half-bred who has been looking for a boyfriend...

They are very impressive horses, eh? Poetry in motion.

I thought he was to be gelded, but she is keeping him a stallion assuming it doesn't cause any decrease in quality of life for him. No melanomas that I know of? Never had a horse, grey or otherwise, with melanomas

Nes is right - at 3, he should have no issues. Have seen a lot older greys that never had them including a grey pony I boarded for 2 years. At 18 or so, he is still fine.

I was just curious, we had two andalusians at a barn I used to ride with and both of them [17yrs and 22yrs] had to have their tails amputated. They were the worst cases of melanomas I have ever seen, one of them had them all up in his lips and neck. I don't think they got them at 3, but they got them when they were younger.

In bad cases you might get them around 8. Most of the time they are just really ugly with out causing too many issues, it's the interal ones that cause problems.

Typically it is only gray horses who have melanomas, possibly because their skin is black and not pink (like most horses) but that is an unproven theory as far as I know.
