OK ,I think you once again missed my point.


I am merely creating an awareness , in case someone else runs into the same issue. Genetic testing in this way is rather new back when this happened, AQHA never questioned it either until THAT PARTICULAR UNION!!


By my SAYING , "IT DOES NOT AFFECT THE HORSE HE IS OR WHAT HE PUTS ON THE GROUND" , ment by his wonderful disposition , his confirmation , great foot , bone, ect , ect. Many of his babies have gone on to be wonderful horses as far as a real working horses , roping and barrel horses. COLOR IS ONLY A BONUS! Do you REALLY think ALL people are out to mislead others?

In the end...I was not surprised and since I do not breed for color over all, I was not that worried , and neither was anyone who bred to him , because I informed them. I have always been honest with anyone I have bred outside to , and have had many repeat customers.

...and yes, it scares me many are out there that have not had the type of union that would raise that red flag?

Should my stallion have been a gelding , it never would have been an issue. I thought bringing this up would be an interesting subject, considering his outward appearance.

Since this has happened , I have taken a vested interest in genetics and have complied, turning my lemons into lemonade if you will.

I am also very picky about the mares I breed. One has to be.

Oh I am sorry. I was under the impression you still had him registered as a blue roan.

Nope, changed a few years ago. Thanks for the interaction! Be well!

Only way to know foe sure is to test. I see Blue But some are clearly Color Blind. :) And yes I know it is OLD thread.

Old thread, yes, but .02 of mine.

Take away the "roan" and that horse is BROWN. Add the roan and he's a BROWN ROAN.

Having said that, I think AQHA would register him as a blue roan, much the same way so many bay roans are "red roan" to AQHA.
