Ok - here are some pics from this afternoon - her belly really is not that visible from behind.. she really doesn't seem to have a big belly at all, but she had NO belly before because I rode her every day.. she really makes me doubt sometimes that she is in foal.. but the doc said that they really grow like the last 2 months.. so hopefully we will see more of a belly in a month?

She's gorgeous! The stud is nice too, they both compliment each other from what I can tell. I can't say much about color.. I mainly read these threads to learn more. :3 I can't wait to see the baby, I have a feeling it will be flashy. (:

I can see a little bit of a belly. I don't think they really start showing until a little before when they get really pregnant and that is when the belly kind "drops" and gives the pregnant look.

Some mares can really surprise you - when we got Zierra's dam, she was due to foal in a month and was so abused and starved, we didn't even believe she was pregnant much less due to foal. She somehow managed to deliver a healthy filly exactly a month to the day after we got her, all by herself.

Several years later, I bred her to a Hanoverian stud but she kept coming back into heat. She had a leg injury that render her unrideable so I ended up re-homing her as a pasture mate. A year later I got a phone call - she managed to trick all of us, and hide her pregnancy for an entire year before giving birth to another completely healthy filly unassisted despite NO proper pregnancy care.

Some mares just hide it well!

It's absolutely possible. There is no way to know the mare's agouti without having her tested. If she's Aa or AA, bay is possible. It's only not possible if she's aa.

The foal has 50% chance of being chestnut, 50% chance of being black OR bay. 50% chance of getting momma's tobiano, and 50% chance of getting daddy's roan, so a 25% chance of both. If the mare is aa, 12.5% chance of a blue roan tobiano. If she's Aa, 6.25% chance. If she's AA, no chance at all.

Yeah - I never tested her for Agouti.. I figured she is e/e (LOL) - I bred her for her great mind and she does have a nice body too (comparing to most horses I see around here - I am not expert on conformation - but learning every day).. but I do have a weakness for pintos, so I did test her after she was bred for tobiano pattern hoping and praying she would be homozygous (it's only $25 at UC Davis) - but she carries only one Tobiano gene - therefore is not homozygous

Anyways - so it looks like we are in for lots of color possibilities - I am going let Brandy surprise us.. she is really starting to gain weight now.. I call her my 4 legged zeppelin

She is definitely ee, because if she wasn't, she wouldn't be chestnut ;) E is extension, which is the gene for black vs red. I think you mean aa, but there is no way to know without testing, unless both HER parents are black.
