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).

I would bred X number of using horses for namely (ranch work, team penning, and any other use I might need or want) in other words a jack of all trades
A sorrel founation QH (its the most common color)
A black ASH
Hopefully a hoss about 15 hh with high muscles with good endurance, and most in importantly a good temperament

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
