    Foal
    That foal could easily be smoky cream. The dam could be smoky brown and/or smoky black. It's REALLY hard to tell cream on them, and they can look 100% bay and still carry cream.

    I think the foal is a double dilute.

    So in order to produce a double dilute, both parents have to carry the cream gene right?

    So, my mare carries it, and the stallion carries it....so then is it a given the foal will have it?

    No. If the mare happens to be a smoky black and the sire does too, then there would be a 25% chance of the foal being smoky cream because both parents would be Crcr.

    Crcr + Crcr =

    Crcr
    Crcr
    Crcr
    CrCr

    Google punnett squares.

    But like I said, my guess what really out there and based on some poor quality photos and I wasn't going to commit to that idea without better pictures.

    No. If both parents carry one copy you have 25% chance the foal WON'T have it, 50% chance the foal will have one copy (palomino, buckskin, smoky black, etc) and 25% chance the foal will have two copies (cremello, perlino, smoky cream, etc).

    She's due any time now! Here's pics of her now. Her coat is shedding off and you can see how much darker it is underneath.

    Oh, splendid! You have to post pictures when she foals so we can decipher its color.

    They're very simple actually. A horse can only have up to 2 copies of a gene so you put those in and you'll get your possibilities in terms of fourths.

    For example, frame overo, which is denoted as O and is the gene that causes LWOS. My mare is N/O and if I were to breed her to another N/O horse, I'd get

    25% NN
    50% NO (two results in NO, but no point in listing them separately as two 25% chances)
    25% OO, which is lethal

    Oh I definitely will! I'm hoping for something great given the parents colors. This was NOT a planned breeding, so at the very least I hope a really cool colt comes out of it.
