Introduction and pic of Strawberry Roan Brindle Mustang.
Hi everyone. I'm new to this site and wanted to introduce myself and share a pic of my strawberry roan brindle (blm stated color) Mustang mare. :o) I see there are a lot of color genetics people in this forum, and I LOVE THAT! I know a bit about it myself, but definitely NOT EVERYTHING and I REALLY WANT TO!! Lol
WOW! If I remember correctly, this is a type of chimeraism, this horse should have to sets for DNA, one set is coded for one colour while the other set the second colour. It is believed to be inherited, but if there is a gene for brindle it hadn't been discovered yet. This is definetly one of the most striking brindle horses I have ever seen. Posted via Mobile Device
She is BEAUTIFUL!! Strawberry roan is reall normally a roan with flaxen mane and tail, kind of a made up name, so she is really just a red roan, but still brindle and cool looking! Posted via Mobile Device
I agree that Strawberry Roan has a flaxen mane. BLM has Strawberry Roan Brindle on her paperwork, but I take everything the BLM says with a grain of salt anyway. Lol I call her a Red roan brindle myself. Chimera is one cause of a brindle coat pattern, but not the only cause from everything I have read. Chimera is also non-hereditary, while the other cause MAY BE inherited. I have not had her dna tested, but I plan to as soon as finances agree with me. Lol More pix...No need to twist my arm...I LOVE sharing her pix. Lol
It was 105 degrees with 100% humidity here the day these were taken, so she was sweating just standing in her shed. :(
