    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. And I will be getting this done sometime after christmas. And just if you wanted to know she wouldnt be bred till late spring or early summer.

    Gray is dominant but not a given. My QH Sarge is a gorgeous coppery metallic bay. His sire, his sire's dam and her sire and quiet a few others were gray.

    The Arabian Ranch where I board my horses are all but a few gray. They are born a beautiful chestnut color and pretty much are gray by the time they are 2 or 3.

    What you'll get is another grade QH, to add to the thousands floating around already.

    I don't care if I get another grade. But I want something with a good temperament and disposition, this foal would be used for my personal use. Like I do barrel racing for fun and trail riding.

    Then buy one already on the ground with the confirmation to succeed, rather than contribute to the problem of too many horses. You seem to have put zero thought into anything but color.

    Why does it matter if I breed my mare to a stud, I mean im keeping it. Its not like oh im going to breed and then sale it. The foal will grow up with me and be trained the way I want. I mean im not trying to be mean but are you going to tell AQHA breeders to stop breeding their horses because so many are already out there, NO!! Maybe I want a clean slate with a foal not someone that already started the foal the way they wanted. Im not trying to offend you but I have much as a opinion as much as you.

    People are just overly...I don't know the proper word...defensive? Overbearing? When it comes to breeding. I can understand that as there is a huge population of unwanted horses, the equine market is crap, and currently no horse that has ever had Bute is allowed to be slaughtered for human consumption. Don't take it to heart, really, just understand where others are coming from.

    Like Chiilaa said, if he was indeed palomino before going grey and has thrown non-grey foals then you have a 50/50 chance at a palomino or chestnut and 50/50 with grey, so you could have a solid pally or chestnut or a grey pally or chestnut. Good luck.

    I would just like to add that he probably only looked dunskin because of they greying process. And please test for frame. And put up a lot of pictures of the baby. And then when you think you've put up too many pictures, put up some more.

    She will be getting tested after christmas, then if all is good she will be bred and I will probably do a foaling thread for her. I mean I only have 2 horses and one is older and if anything happened it would be heartbreaking but the baby would end up replacing her for a trail horse and family pet, and if the potential, a barrel prospect. I wouldnt sell the foal, cause I know the market is crap and the foal would be grade (which doesnt matter) and already be part of the family. Lol color really doesnt matter, I was just wondering his color and maybe a chance what my girl and him would throw.
