    Your dream foal... (a game)

    A little game I thought would be fun. If you could breed any horses who are great at any 3 disciplines, are any breed, and one of them may be homozygous for any color, what would you breed?

    Ex. I would breed 2 eventers (dressage, cross country, and show jumping - my three are used up)
    One would be a 16h Cremello Homozygous for Tobiano Warmblood
    The other a 14h Grulla Fjord (haha I cheated purebred fjords are all homozygous dun :P I found a loophole)

    Judging by these colors the baby would have 50% for being Dunalino Tobiano and 12.5% for:
    Dunskin Tobiano
    Silver Smokey Grullo Tobiano
    Smokey Grullo Tobiano
    I love duns, so any of the colors would make me happy.

    And would hopefully be around 15h.

    I used http://www.animalgenetics.us/CCalculator1.asp for the genetics. Execpt for the one homozygous trait you're allowed to have just put heterozygous for everything else.

    Let's see what we can get :)

    I use that calculator all the time. My numbers came out different than yours but I don't know if what you made up for if the Cremello is a Silver carrier, ect :)

    I put heterozygous for everything but the Tobiano and the Dun Factor (Fjords are homozygous dun).
