Breeding a buckskin mare

I am considering breeding my gorg buckskin mare. I'd really like to get another buckskin out of her. Has anyone had any experience with a buckskin mare throwing buckskin offspring?What colour stud was she bred to?

I'm looking at this lovely WB cremello stallion right now..he has thrown some nice foals!
Mirabeau (Cremello Warmblood son of Mascarpone)

I want his babies hahaha

Did a quick search and a cremello x buckskin is likely to produce: Buckskin, (33.34%), Perlino (33.34%), Palomino (16.67%) , or Cremello (16.67%).

Genetics are something I know next to nothing about, so I'll be interested to see what other posts you get.

I took forensics in school, I'm fairly great with genetics..but without knowing a full genetic makeup of my mare & the stud, it's more a guessing game. It's easier when they tell you what colour foals the stud has thrown with what colour mare, then you can get an idea what genes he is carrying, and homo or hetero etc etc.

I also learned tonight they can perform a test for the black allele at the Agouti locus..

Science is so fascinating hahah

This website will help. I also have a buckskin mare. I was curious what colours I could get if I ever decided to breed her and happened to find a stallion I like. Verrrrrry unlikely she will ever be bred, but I can be curious, right?!

According to this, there was a 14.58% chance that my mare would end up buckskin as her parents are buckskin overo and palomino.

K I went and checked, the stud is not carrying black. So this crosses smokey blacks out too. So you have a rough 25% chance of each of the four colours - perlino, cremello, palomino and buckskin.

For a better idea of what colour is more likely, you need to give more information on the mare, or better yet, get her tested :)

I want to steal the horse in your avatar! My goodness, how beautiful!

I might be getting a cremello mare. I probably won't breed her, but it would be interesting to see what sort of colors she is capable of producing. Would the cremello gene basically dilute the color of the stallion if the stallion's color gene is recessive?

^ Just made that up, so bare with me...

Snookeys - yes, that is essentially what it does.

So chestnut becomes pally, bay becomes bucky and so forth. That is when the horse is only carrying one copy of the dilute.

With two copies, one from each parent, the horse is a double dilute, which is your cremellos and perlinos.
