Predicting Foals' Future Personalities is a wonderful website devoted to reporting scientific research about horses. In a recent article, the report is on research done by a French team that has indicated that it might be possible to predict a foal's future personality. "Foals’ initial expressions of their developing personalities are clear signs of the horse’s adult personality–and even learning capacity–to come, researchers found."

According to one of the researchers, "These differences [in foal behavior] are indicators of certain adult personality traits such as susceptibility to emotions (fearfulness) and gregariousness (sociability with other horses), as well as of the capacity to learn a new task and to memorize it. As such, it seems possible to predict some adult characteristics by at least three months of age."
