Ok I will! I will never let him breed anything and I'm pretty sure I'm just going to buy another horse.

You need to know their HYPP status whether or not you breed them. If they are HYPP positive it means that you can be prepared if they ever have an attack, etc.

sounds as though you have done this before, and if you plan to breed in the future, I would highly suggest this great website: Color Calculator

Its very easy to use, you would just choose 'Blue roan' for sire, and leave the second box under sire to 'solid' and then dam would be chosen to 'sorrel/chestnut' and the second box next to dam would be frame overo you hit 'continue' and since you don't know there specific genetics, hit the 'Calculate button, and wala! You have the percentages that are scientifically proven :)
And its free!

Good luck :)

*sigh* sunnymeade I suggest you look up the rest of her threads. She did not breed this mare before she got her bred and according to the APHA she is registered as being owned by someone in North Dakota, which means at this point the colt is not registrable without a lot of time/money.

I would give anything to get a blue roan just once in my lifetime haha.
I've tried, and tried, and tried some more to no avail.

I thought I got lucky last winter when I bred my strawberry roan mare to my solid black stud. The colt dropped on the ground and he was as blue as he could be, with a small tint of gray. Long story short, now at 7 months he is as chestnut/bay as it gets, with no hope for blue roan. Im sure he will develop fully into one of those two as he gets a little older, but its still hard to tell so far. He's going to be a good one, so color doesnt bother me, but I thought I got lucky on that one.

Instead of breeding over and over trying for a blue roan, why not just buy one? I think that's the point a lot of people are going to try and make.

Honestly, the mare isn't breeding quality. Go with your gut and buy something on the ground.
