PECULIARITIES OF ORME COLTS. John Porter has pointed out a curious piece of heredity in connection with colts sired by Orme. They have a strange manner of carrying their heads sideways and askew, lighting at the bit. The remarkable thing, however, is that the Allies sired by Orme do nor show any trace of this trick. Of course, there is nothing curious in any instance of heredity, which is the whole basis of breeding. But scientific breeding is really a most interesting affair. -
