Lol. No, I don't treat my students that way. I have, however, had teachers that did..........

Alright, I sent her an email, hopefully I'll get a nice reply back!

On a side note, I'm having trouble with a Dominant White foal picture.

I still struggle a bit with some. It's obviously Ww but what about E and A (agouti)? I think I see some chestnut on the ears...is it safe to say that this is ee aa? And would you name this a Dominant White Chestnut?

I would have to put him down as red based, with agouti unknown. You can't tell agouti status of a horse except in a very, very few cases.

Another Homozygous Roan Stud

Here is a Tennesse walking horse stud that is a homozygous roan. His raon zygosity test is Rn/Rn.

I need some of the other color smarties so that if this is indeed incorrect (like I feel that it is) I can go to my professor and be like "Y .U NO TEACH RIGHT?!"
I want to note my enjoyment of Snape reference.

Agouti meaning he may or may not be bay as well right? Because horses with dark points need to be at least AA or Aa right?

Just trying to do well in this assignment and learn some things! Lol

Agouti is the bay/brown/wild bay modification. A red based horse can carry the modification but will not show it. It only affects black horses.

There are only two base colors in horses. Black and red. Everything else is a modification of those two colors.
