Chimera Question

Ive been doing a lot of color pondering lately obviously. I'll use Stetsons Mr Blue as an example. He is both black and chestnut. When being bred which color genetics would he pass on? The black or the chestnut? Chance of either? What determines that?

It depends on what which cells are the in the genetic makeup of his scrotum and if both testicles carry the same DNA or not.

gosh that was a weird sentence to type out

There was a human lady who needed a kidney transplant. All three of her sons got themselves tested to see if they were matches, as good sons would. Through the testing process, it turned out that one of her sons was not her biological child, but was related to her. Through more testing, they discovered that she had absorbed a twin while she was in her mother's womb. One of her ovaries belonged to herself, one to the twin she had parts of. This son who was not her biological child must have come from an egg released from the twin's ovary.

That's insane! And interesting. Thanks for sharing. I might have to look up his foals when I get home. I think he had like 12...and all were solid except one minimally marked.

Would his white marking genetic makeup belong to one of the particular colors as well? As in he could be a mix of a solid chestnut and black overo.

I am going to pretend you didn't use the "o" word lol.

Yes, white patterning would be connected to one set of DNA.
