    But plugging both mom and dad in as solids, this is what you get:

    23.44% - Black
    6.25% - Chestnut
    Thanks! I have 2 solid paints and would love a splash of color...........but, really....I just want my mare to have a healthy foal without any complications. But a splash of color would be icing on the cake! :lol

    Without knowing the zygousity of the parents, always assume that they are heterozygous. So the results should look more like this:

    Chestnut 25%
    Black 37.5%
    Bay 37.5%

    White patterns are separate genes, and as such, are independent of the base colour of the horse. Looking at the sire, I would say he probably has sabino, and maybe tobiano too. Either way, these genes may be passed on, but may be minimal, as in the case of the sire, or very loud.

    Thanks for the information..........I get so confused about the different types of paints and the genetics of color. I appreciate your input.

    Foal
    I have a chestnut Arab mare approaching foaling, the sire is a paint. I wonder who will foal first? My mare doesn't have a due date, I bought her late May as seven (or eight) months pregnant. She looks pretty much like your mare, belly-wise. A little udder development, but she's not a maiden so it's not so noticeable. I'd like to get a photo up but I don't know how

    How the pattern genes are expressed can be very difficult to predict.

    In our herd, consider 3 generations/4 closely related horses..

    Grandmother "Mandy", with just enough belly white to be a "regular" registry Paint.



    Daughter "Lady", mostly white (her other side is completely white).



    Grandson "Buckshot", visually, a pretty loud black tobi.



    And Buckshot's half sister, "Cinnamon" (same sire)

    Thanks Merlot! My husband IS wonderful! He made my dream of having horses a reality when he bought my first horse 16 years ago, building a barn, arena and run in shed. He is not much of a rider, but he LOVES to take care of them.
