Horse colors when breeding

I have a quarterhorse that is brown with a black maine and tail and I'm getting ready to breed her with a black and with over paint. What are the different color possibilities?

Ok first I am going to say this as nice as I can. If you do not know that the first horse is called bay and the second is a black and white Pinto/paint then you might want to rethink breeding.

Next what color you will get will depend on certain things. If the horses are homozygous or heterozygous

So I misspelled a couple words and don't know excat names for colors of horses. That doesn't mean anything. That was just rude.

If you don't even know proper horse colors, you're hardly qualified to be breeding them.

NRHA is a breeder and knows of what she speaks. Calling her rude will get you nowhere around here, especially since she was trying to be as nice as possible because you're a noob.

It was not rude and it has nothing to do with miss spelling of words. It has more to do with the fact that color NAMES are so very basic. Like in math color names are like 1+1=2 is basic math where breeding is more like Calculus. Not all that hard once you learn the basics but if you do not know the basics then it becomes very very hard.

So my advice before you start thinking about breeding learn all you can about it including the names of the different color of horses. Breeding is not something that should be done lightly. There are just too many horses out there that need homes to bring anouther average horse into the mix.

I didn't mean I was breeding them. My trainer is.

Then you need to give us all the info. There are so many possibilities if you do not know the horses status.

Well, if they're your trainer's horses, then why not ask just her what she's expecting out of this combination?

She should know for what and why she's breeding them.

The overo stallion is his horse, he's training my bay but is going to breed the two because my horse is 17 and has old injuries from a previous owner and ge feels the best thing for her is to have a purpose in life so he's breeding her. He's only trainging her because she thinks she's boss over people because no one showed her different.

May I ask what homozygous and heterozygous mean? And what do you mean by the status of the horses?
