My BF sent Kira's dam Gleeful Pico off to be bred for the last time, and I was wondering what the foal is likely to look like. At Gleeful's second home she produced all chestnut foals, and at the home before ours she was bred to a black stallion(he has black,bay,chestnut foals) a few times and had all bay foals(some dark, some light bay). Here is the stud she is being bred to Ali Dhalan most of his foals are grey and one is bay. I'm not good at understanding the color genetics so could someone tell me if Gleeful can produce grey?
It is possible for Gleeful to have a grey foal, but only because the stallion is a grey. One parent has to be grey in order for the foal to be a grey. But, the foal could still be born a chestnut like Gleeful and then turn grey later in life. BTW, beautiful stallion choice and also beautiful mare.
Yes it is possible for her to have a grey by that stallion. About a 50% chance as it looks like he is not homozygous for grey. Any other colors (or base color) all depends on what is under the stallion's grey.
A friend of mine bred her grey mare (who had only produced greys) to a grey stallion (Showkayce, I'm not sure if any of his offspring aren't grey..) and whoop! I liver chestnut baby. He's almost a year and still hasn't shown any signs of greying.
Off topic, but just goes to show you just never know ;)
What a pretty girl! She's got such a kind eye! Question for you, how did you find exact percentages for bloodlines like that? I have a filly that I want to see what lines she has but I'm at a loss as to how to find that out!
