Well, all I can say, is best of luck! Having a foal is always exciting. I'm breeding my mare in the spring to a Paint and to be honest, I didn't think of Lethal White either until I was looking on the prospective stallion's website and saw "OLWS - N/N" and then googled what it meant. If that hadn't been there, I may not have known either, I was just lucky enough that the stallion owner had it posted. You can't do anything now, since she is already in foal, except do your best to provide for your mare to have a healthy foal in the spring, which of course you will! And I find your mare's colouring neat. I'm not very good with genetics, but you may consider going to the color calculator, just for fun to see what it says.

For the sake of the baby, I hope the palomino isn't hiding frame.

As for potential colors you have the potential for any of the following (solids listed + any combination of pinto coloring your mare has) depending on the black zygosity of your mare and if the stallion is hiding agouti:

Buckskin, bay, brown, black, smoky black, chestnut, palomino.

I also hope there is no frame hiding anywhere, so my fingers are crossed for you and your mare. You do know you'll have to start a foaling thread when she's closer to her due date right? I'm curious to see what colour you're going to get.

I thought you said there was a two yr old Colt in the pasture with her, so how can you be sure the Pali stallion is the sire? i dont think exercising your mare while she was PG caused the still birth, or feral horses would only have still births. Exercise is good for them , but that does not mean go work them into a lather. Hope your mare has a healthy foal this time.

There was a 1 1/2 to 2 year old colt in the pasture with her. I thought he has been gelded. That is the reason I am not sure about the color of this baby. The colt that was in the pasture with her was a black & white paint.

I hope for your sake the other possible daddy doesn't have frame

I know my mare is bred to the palomino this time. The colt that was in the pasture has been gelded and has been sold and the palomino is the only stallion on the place rest are geldings and mares.

Um, when was the last time she was in with the colt? If she was still being exposed to him while he was intact during/after breeding her to the palomino, then yes she could have been bred by him as well. Colts can be fertile and fully functioning reproductively at that age..

I think people are getting confused here's what it sounds like to me happened:
The mare was exposed to a stud colt by accident a while ago (the paint) the foal was still-born. Since then she has developed an injury that makes her unsuitable for riding or showing, so the owner decided to breed her to the palomino stallion. Considering the fact the mare came back in heat the first time she came back from the stud it sounds like the colt didn't breed her again either. So she's definitely pregnant from the palomino stud. It was irresponsible to breed without checking for frame - but it was a mistake, it was made, we can't all be perfect. I hope the foal comes out healthy - either way it sounds like Silver has learned the importance of checking in the future.

As for color possibilities:
If the stud carries agouti:
Black, Bay, Brown, Buckskin, Brownskin, Smoky Black
If not:
Black or smoky black
As for the pattern, depends on the mare could be any or all of her patterns.

Good luck with your foal :) I hope all goes well! Pictures are a big Must!
