Will it happen again?

Hey :)
I have this mare named Brandy, during the time i've known her she's had four foals.
They're ALL pretty much identical. And they're ALL colts.
They're all light bay with a blaze straight down their face.
But they all have different sires...
She's about to have another one (again, from a different sire) and im hoping it comes out black like her, but she just keeps having bays.
Do you think it'll happen again?

It all depends on the sire. If the genes are there, there isn't much you can do. Not sure about the colts though. Some women just have boys (me), maybe its the same with horses...

Foal
Weather or not a mare has a colt of filly is entirely up to chance- and the stallions sperm as the x or y chromosome which deciphers the sex is carried on the male gamete. Wooo gcse biology :) in the holidays :(

I don't know much about colours but if either parent carries the gene that limits the black to points then there is a chance the foal will be bay.

Wikipedia actually has quite a good page on horse colour genetics ;)

You do realize that you (the female) have nothing to do with determining the gender of the baby, right? Sperm takes care of that.

Completely understood. However the Ph in some women prevent the 'female' sperm from surviving. I have a friend with 5 boys from two different marriages. I wasn't sure if it was the same with horses.

Foal
What color are the sires? If she's black she can't have a bay without agouti being passed from the sire. So you're either breeding to a bay based horse or a chestnut based hiding agouti. Is she truly black, though?

yeah, she's truly black, one of the sires was bay, two were brown/black and im not sure about the other one.
