I have done some reading & looking as much up as I can. I just get all confused with DNA. I will most likly get the kit and have one done.
Sire: Black & white tobiano paint stallion Bhr Jingo Drifter Paint
Dam: Black percheron mare Sparrowview Hot Shot Harley Percheron
I have noticed in the sires pedigree, his dams sire is a red dun overo. a product of a black & a bay. four generations over is another dun overo.
Now i know foal colors are differnet a birth ^ his dorsal is just a over coat of some sort, so i dont look at that.
But I see the dun in the DNA and i look at my new colt and wonder, I know hes black & think hes going to be black. he is mousy "pewter" greyish black but he has brown/gold inner ear fuzz &
a shade of blue in his eyes. Very dark steel legs & head, where the baby fuzz looks greyish blue.
interesting... Yup... Im confused.
But I just wonder since his sire is a black and white paint stallion yet not homozygous to throw color if he passed something else.
I have never seen a black foal born with brownish color in the ears & blueish eyes. But people say its possible but he is not a "pure black horse" hes a smokey then?
But the Dun in the blood. Its been passed through the generations as some people say only the parents give the foal its color.
I do not believe that is true just with my boys sire's pedigree & a random weird Dun out of a black & bay.
So my question is.....
What secrets could his DNA hold.
I wil be finding out through the test kit when i order it.
But currious moms want to know!
