Color possibilities

If your mare is heterogyzous black and if the stallion carries an agouti gene, your base color options are: black, smokey black, chestnut, palomino, bay (or brown), or buckskin (or brownskin). You also have a chance to get lots or even little white, depending on what genes are passed on and how much they are expressed.

If you knew your mare was homozygous black and/or the stallion was not an agouti carrier, your color possibilities would be a smaller selection.

I hope the stallion has been tested for frame, because I think your mare has it. If the stallion has it too, you have a 25% chance of another dead foal due to lethal white.

I did not think about the lethal white.

And that is why so many lethal white foals are still born. If you want to take the responsibility of breeding your mare, you should have thought about this well before you bred her. It should have been the number one thing you looked at - it is so easy to avoid a lethal white foal if you care enough to do it.

The reason I did not think about lethal white is all the babies of the stallion have been palomino or sorrel.
I am sorry I offended you. I will not post again

Lethal white can happen on any base color. Any horse used for breeding that is a breed known to carry LWO should be tested and bred accordingly.

Fellow Mississippian :)

I don't think anyone wants you to stop posting, just consider it an opportunity to learn and improve. Which I think you are trying to learn, otherwise you wouldn't have joined here :)

Are you sure your mare is black she looks like a blue roan to me but maybe it's just the lighting in the pictures.

I don't think anyone wants you to stop posting either. Alot of people don't think about OLWS when breeding to a solid horse.

Cmarie - Blue roans are black with roan. Personally I DO think she is black based and her "roan" appearance is due to sabino.

In the summer time she does look blue.
I know I should have test for OLWS this is my first mare that I choose the stallion and that just did not cross my mind at the time.
Last years baby was an accident I did not realize she was in foal until she started bagging up. When I got her at the beginning of last year she was thin and you could see her ribs and her hip bones and When she started to gain weight I thought that I was doing good with her feeding.
I showed and trail rode her until she started bagging up.
I thought the reason the baby was still born was because of that and it was also her first baby.
