    And perhaps I shouldn't have gone to the Wikipedia site for punnett squares then! No wonder I got cross eyed, sheesh! Hahaha

    What color was the palomino foal's dam?

    Do you have any better pics of the sire?
    That was bad wording on my part. I was trying to say if she‘s heterozygous for agouti. If she‘s homozygous she‘ll never have a black foal, just bays, correct?

    If she is homozygous for agouti she will ALWAYS pass one copy to her progeny. If she is you have a better chance of having another buckskin. Or if the stud is smokey cream a Perlino if the pass thier cream. Neither could pass their cream and you get a bay. (Happened to me haha)

    Well I wasn't able to get any better pictures today. It has rained and stormed all day long. Just what we need, more mud!

    Update! The little foal has blue eyes! I finally got close enough this afternoon to have a good look, and sure enough the little filly has blue eyes! I tried to get a pic but the eyes just turned out glowing green lol.

    So, this confirms that the stud, who my mare is bred to, has to carry cream and is a smoky black.

    Well this is exciting!

    Depends could carry a white pattern that causes blue eyes.(splash/frame).

    The blue eyes look just like the blue eyes in dilutes. Not the bright blue I saw in the splash/frame. I wish I could get that little sucker out of the barn to get better pictures!

    There is no way for that foal to be a double cream and to have double cream caused blue eyes. Not with having a sorrel/chestnut dam.

    Do you think the mare might be a smoky black or brown and not actually chestnut?
