the reason I asked about homozygous is because
homozygous tobiano means she will always throw a tobiano gene to foal (meaning never throw a solid foal)

homozygous black means she will never throw a red foal.

And here I am back again.

Just because a foal receives the tobiano gene does not mean it can't be solid. Tobiano can express anywhere from really loud right through to just a sock, or no white at all. Just to keep us on our toes lol.

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.

Nope not roan. Roan is a LOT more pronounced than anything you see in OP's photos and I honestly don't see any roan at all.

I think what you're seeing, Ethan, is the shine on the mare's coat.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
