Breeding genetic question!

What can I breed my palomino mare to , to get a dun, Buckskin, cremello, or palomino? She is homozygous or heterozygous and she doesn't carry the agouti gene. Every time she was bred to a chestnut she threw a chestnut or sorrel.

Have you tested her for agouti? Without testing, or examining her pedigree, you can't tell on a red based horse.

Palomino is red based so of course breeding her to another red based horse is going to get you a red base with or without the cream.

I'd also like to know if you have had her agouti status tested.

If you are hoping for a dun, atleast one of the parents have to be a dun for the foal to be a dun.

She has no agouti.

So she was tested for it?
    05-14-2012, 12:29 PM
Yes, and almost all the horses on her pedigree are dun or palomino.

So if you want a dun, breed to a dun stallion. She sounds heterozygous for creme, so if you want a buckskin or a palomino, breed to a stallion with preferably two creme genes. If you want a cremello, then you would definitely want to breed to a stallion with two creme genes.

Where was she tested for agouti?

Other than that, she is homozygous red and heterozygous for cream.

Honestly, your best bet would probably be a dunkskin stallion, like SBR Formula One website if you want the possibility of getting all of those colors.

ETA: After rechecking, he's homozygous black, so your possibilities would be buckskin, dunskin, perlino, perlino dun, bay dun, and bay.
