    Oh, I will do that. Just need to find a pic of her shed out because you can hardly see her stripe due to winter fuzzy's. Thank you.

    If you were to breed Breeze to that stallion, your foal would potentially be black, chestnut, bay, or brown depending on the stallion's agouti status. Then would have the possibility of inheriting splash or frame (one of which your mare is carrying as those are the two genes to cause blue eyes). The level of expression is not determinable.

    Okay, and if a palomino was bred to a palomino, would the foal inherit a cream gene, because both parents have cream genes.

    Not necessarily. Paliminos are genetically ee (red based) Crcr (one cream gene). The foal would always be red based but each parent has the potential to pass either a Cr OR a cr. If both parents passed the cr gene the code for the foal would be crcr and no cream. However they could also BOTH pass a Cr and you could get a cremello foal. But one could pass a cream and the other might not making the foal Crcr and would be a palomino.

    Not necessarily. Each parent has a 50% chance of passing it on. Palomino + Palomino = chestnut, palomino, or cremello. The foal will for certain be red-based because red based are always homozygous red.

    Have you heard of Punnett squares? Learning to use them would really help answer a lot of your questions here without waiting for people to post.

    Breezy ... you'll have a much better understanding of "what will I get if I cross this with that" if you get a basic understanding of genetics.

    Go out and research horse color genetics on the web .. there are some very good sites that will give you basic horse color genetics..

    It's fun!

    Morgan Colors- Your Information Station for Morgan Color Genetics and Color History

    I prefer Morgan Colors. It isn't specific to Morgans because Morgans carry nearly all modifiers, but when you get deeper into your studies, you'll need to start remembering what breeds don't have certain genes (Random examples: No tobiano in QHs, no dun in TBs, no cream in Arabs)
