If your mare is homozygous was she tested? And if so is she homozygous black or homozygous tobiano? She tobiano and looks like a bleached black and white if she were a bay there woud be brown or fading around the eyes and muzzle.

Second photo bay and white tobiano
Third a sorrel or chestnut

I suppose the pervious owners had her tested, that's what relayed to me when I purchased her. But if it makes a difference I can have my vet test her for my records.

No one is doubting that she is black. Just that she cannot possibly be homozygous and have a chestnut foal. Black and chestnut are controlled on the same locus, the E locus, and black is dominant (E), while chestnut is recessive (e). To be homozygous for black, your horse has two black genes on the locus, so she would be EE. So she can only ever pass on an E gene, which is black, and dominant. Even if the foal got a red gene from it's sire, it would still be Ee, which would display as black. So since her foal is chestnut, it proves that she is not homozygous. There is no need to even test - a chestnut has two ee genes - one from each parent. Therefore, your mare is clearly Ee - heterozygous black carrying chestnut.

OH HAHAH as far as I know she's never had a baby!

She's only 6. The gelding is 23 and our stallion is 8.
I am sorry for the confusion!!!

Oooooh now that makes a bit more sense lol. I was assuming she was the dam and the stallion was the sire and the gelding their produce lol.
