Dream does carry a chestnut gene- he is heterozygous, which I prefer, as I'm not breeding for color, though a few like to assume that I am since my stallion happens to be black..lol, so any of my foals have all the usual available possibilities with him and my mares collective genetics.
Maybe I AM a color breeder-- I do pretty much have one or two-or three of every color..LOL
Glad you like the pics.. I never got to spend any time in Texas; I may have to take you up on that!!
Them colour breeder's, eh?! LOL
I like to say I'm a half colour breeder - I LOVE sabinos, I admit. I'm a chrome fan. Somehow I ended up with a non flashy bay stallion, and a grey. GREY. Now, granted, he's heterzygous, but still.... My killer sabino rabicano 15.3hh mare and I`m just praying that I get a bay filly like her (the last grey stallion she was bred to, she had a bay colt) and not a grey.
But, my mares tend to have a lot of white - but even that isn`t much without conformation and pedigree. I`ve been looking for a few new broodmares - with the colour and pedigree and conformation all together - and it`s hard!
I love having colour options, though. Just getting all greys or all bays wouldn`t be too fun. I just hope I don`t get TOO many greys.
But I wouldn`t say you`re a colour breeder - you have the conformation and pedigree first!
