Color experts unite!

I have a Smokey Black AQHA mare who produces buckskins from a sorrel stallion. I am breeding her to a Missouri Fox Trotter next year, and I want to get a palomino foal from the cross. I know I may not get one either way, but which stallion would give me the BEST chance on my Smokey Black mare? Both the palomino and liver chestnut have produced several palominos in the past. Thanks for your expertise!

Well you need to know if you mare is homozygous or heterozygous for black first. That will tell you if palomino is even a possibility or not.

She has had only bay and buckskin... does that tell you anything? How do I know if she is homozygous without doing a test?

No real way to know for sure without a test. You can make a good guess off of what she has produced with what she was bred to and what her pedigree is, this isn't certain of course.

Yea, too much of a gamble to just base it off of what she's produced so far. $40 will tell ya.
