haha well this one will be a throw up, based on the genetics you were able to provide, this is what I came up with

Chestnut Roughly 50% chance of tobiano, 50% chance of roan. Either way you are going to have one well built and cute little baby on the way! As far as her being preggers, I am pretty sure the vet would know :) that's why he's a vet! Lol. And she does have a little bit of a belly, especially when looking at her flanks. She's gorgeous!! Good luck and keep us updated on mama and baby :)

Heeh - I meant to see "I know she is e/e" - because that is the only one I know for sure LOL (well except that she is not homozygous for tobiano. As far as for Agouti I did not have her tested for that.. so it will be a surprise - will keep you all updated
I rode her in the field on Saturday and she just felt so heavy and slow.. all she wants to do these days is eat.. We did a lot of walking in the snow, trotting and popped in a little canter, but not for too long - she did not even break any sweat.. we'll she has got no winter coat, darn thing is so spoiled she has more quality clothes then I do
Anyways thanks guys - I am really getting excited about this baby - my first - my pride and joy (hopefully) - I am getting scared the more she progresses - she's only got 3 more months left that is it. Will call the vet out in about 3-4 weeks for last Pneumabort shot.. her last one.

YES! She grew in her flanks!! That is where I noticed she started getting bigger first! + her entire back just "expanded" she has never been this round.. I am just waiting to feel the baby kicking.. so far nothing..

Oh yes, and every horse carries their weight different. She may balloon in the next month here, or she may stay tiny. Its hard to say, since each mare is different. But I wouldn't say she's not pregnant, like I said, they are all different, just like humans :) Good luck with her, we love to see little hooves on the ground, so send pics when you can ;)

OMG - today was very exciting.. I took Brandy's winter blanket off in the indoor arena and her belly shook 2 times.. I was stunned as I realized I just saw the baby kick for the first time
-There was a guys who boards her mare next to mine and he saw it too - we both shouted "the baby is kicking"! It just made my day.
I was sooo excited calling my closest friends.. that makes the pregnancy so real right now. Brandy is 8 months and 1 week along - attached a picture.

- on another note - I put the saddle onto my 2 year old filly today for the first time and she did awesome - just one bolt and few bucks - she figured it out really quickly:

As far as training the filly goes, she looks really good for just having a saddle on for the first time!!! Mine took off like a maniac when I saddled her the first time :P She looks very good and she's beautiful. I just love her coloring!

The mare looks happy and healthy as well, so exciting to confirm that she is pregnant, you have seen it with your own eyes :) She does have a little bit of a belly going, who knows, she may just balloon in the next few months. Lol.
Good luck with everything and congrats, that is so exciting!!

Animal testing dot com has the calculator.

Without more genetic info, it says you have an equal chance of getting a blue roan tobiano, blue roan, black tobiano, black, bay tobiano, bay roan, bay, chestnut tobiano, chestnut roan tobiano, etc.

Assuming mare is heterozygous (non homozygous?), same results.

-SLC - I am sorry - I did not see your response, never got email notification. Yes I had Brandy tested she is NOT homozygous tobiano.
