She is a beauty!! Do you know which HMA she came off of? Mi have never seen a brindle mustang before! Congrats on getting her! I am surprised they didn't return her to the wild for her color alone.

*sigh* I wish you people would actually READ. No one is saying she isn't brindle... They are debating if she can pass it on or if it is just a mutation with her.

Thank you Tryst. When I called the BLM to request further information about the area she was captured, the officer I spoke to remembered her well. He told me that she was a problem during the capture (ended up with a scarred leg from one of her stunts) and they didn't want her back out there. Lol I'm NOT surprised. She's SMART!!!!

She's from HMA OR002, which is Beaty Butte, Oregon.

Wiyanna, I was just curious if you named your mare LeTigre after the band?

Really?
Where has anybody said that the mare isn't brindle. The "debate" is whether she is Chimeric (aka absorbed a twin in utero, therefore has two individual sets of DNA) or not (which is unlikely to really exist as to rule out Chimeric you would need to test every single hair and tissue in her body).

You could most likely determine if she was a chimera by sampling hairs from both colors of stripes. If being a chimera is what is making her have stripes, then there would have to be varying DNA in each of the stripes.

Possibly this is the case - however, given she is a roan base colour, and the tests require tail or mane hair, how can you determine you have pulled the right hairs? Roan by definition causes white hairs to grow in the dark hairs, so this makes it very difficult to know what hair belongs to what part of her pattern.

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.
