what color?

Ok I am breeding my chestnut mare to a Palamino. I heard she had a chestnut last time, do you think that she would have a different color this time? Maybe it doesn't work that way. I know I won't get a black because two reds can only make red I hope I get a dun or palamino.

I'm not a color guru, but I believe you have a 50/50 chance of a sorrel or a palomino.

What does the stallion usually throw? That might give you a better idea. My guess would be a dun but it all depends on genetics and I hated that class.

A palomino and chestnut usually throw a palomino but this is not set in concrete and it could also be a chestnut.

Palomino is NOT a dominate color. There are only 3 true colors of horses. Black, bay, and Chestnut. You will still have a 50/50 chance of a palomino. You have a higher chance if you breed to a Perlino or Cremello. You could actually get a chestnut from 2 palominos. Below is a site that explains colors a little better. Horse color is very confusing. (at least to me it is! )

Yes, that's why if I want a certain color I will just buy one already born. It's too hard (and expensive) to breed for a certain color. (and I'm a breeder!) Seems like you can never get what you're trying for. (or at least seldom get. )

I would say a Chestnut!! Chestnuts are very dominate!! You would probally get a Chestnut wiht flaxen mane and tail!

Since both are recessive traits, I'm nearly positive that it will be a 50/50 shot for either color, chestnut (weather it be a sorrel chestnut or not) and palomino, but that's just my view.


Ummm. Do a punnet square, with two lowercase p's for palomino on the left and two lowercase c's on the top.
Wait that won't work.

Look at what the sire usually has, since the stud your mare was bred to to have the chesnut foal probably had the recessive chesnut gene too....

Now I'm going to stop before I utterly confuse my self.
