Well your mare's a quarab right? Is she registered anywhere?

In all honesty, if you're looking for a specific color, you're better off buying than breeding.

Yes she is registered. The only reason I've bred her or would ever breed her in the future is for her personality and so I would have HER baby. Just the color would be a plus, if it were even possible :)

I'll bet it costs an arm and a leg to breed to one!! Lol
What breed(s) are you considering for the stud?

This QH stud is homozygous for black and roan: Leo Blue Hancock I don't think you can get much more roan than that!

They claim that he cannot throw a bay foal, is this 100% true?

Obviously, he will always throw a black based foal, but surely just because he's homozygous black doesn't mean he can't throw a bay or brown foal, right?

Correct. If bred to a mare carrying agouti, he can indeed have bay or brown foals.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

It depends on what the mare he is bred to is carrying.

Just curious but what are the genetics behind a blue roan? Its black based and what other things going on that turn the black into the beautiful color?

It's black with true roan. That's all there is to it.
