Okay so here is just a theoretical question I'm going to throw out here that I've been pondering awhile.
There are absolutely no blue roan pintos around me. I found one a few days ago that I liked but wasn't sold on buying because she would only fill out to 14hh. When I went back to further inquire on this lovely filly, she was sold. That's pretty much how fast they go...
So I was pondering on color chances and genes with breeding and such, not that I'll necessarily breed. But pretty much here's the situation.
I have a blue roan Percheron mare. She is turning 5 next year and isn't really a great show horse IMO just because of her history of abuse so she gets quite nervous and shies away from everything at shows. Though she's flashy, I'm using her as pleasure.
Would breeding her to a homozygous tobiano "up" the possibility/percentage factor of her throwing a blue roan pinto?
I know that it's a crapshoot with breeding, but I'm just spitballing ideas to get color and chrome in one package here.
So opinions? :)
