My 6 year old grade paint mare is in foal. She is a chestnut tobiano (non homozygous - I had her tested)
- The study a a blue roan registered QH. I haven't seen the stud's parents, but was told that his dam was blue roan and Sire solid chestnut. We don't have a history on what this stud throws, because he is only 2.5 (2 in the picture - he has filled in A LOT since the pics were taken last summer), and my mare is "his first".
I have heard that "the roan gene" is a "strong gene" - not sure if that is true, but most likely this stud is not homozygous roan is his Sire was solid with no roan..
I am really hoping for a blue roan tobiano baby.. but my guess is it will end up a solid chestnut with no roan :-D (it's OK we will love him/ her anyway).
Please note that the stud's legs are camped out because of his training.. he was trained to do that for mounting. The stud picture is here as attachment.
I am posting picture of my mare also.
