possible foal colors?

I am breeding Bourbon to one of these two cutting stallions first potential is Black Little Lena he is black and the second is Autumn Cat he is a sorrel roan rabicano Bourbon has tested smoky black this is just for fun and in no way the deciding factor because I think the choices will be similar.

Is your mare homozygous or heterozygous for black?

heterozygous so she carries both red and black?

Yes. Heterozygous mean that she is Ee (one black gene and one red gene).

Bourbon X Black Little Lena gets you these possibilities -

37.50% - Smoky Black
37.50% - Black
12.50% - Palomino
12.50% - Chestnut



I can't figure out if Autumn Cat is carrying agouti or nor, or if he is homozygous for rabicano, so these numbers can be off. Of course he is does pass on his rabicano, there is no guarantee that it will be loud. It can go from a very tiny amount that you would barely notice to full blow WOW.

So Bourbon x Autumn Cat could give you these possibilities with what I know -

12.50% - Palomino Rabicano
12.50% - Palomino
12.50% - Chestnut Rabicano
12.50% - Chestnut
6.25% - Smoky Black Rabicano
6.25% - Smoky Black
6.25% - Buckskin Rabicano
6.25% - Buckskin
6.25% - Black Rabicano
6.25% - Black
6.25% - Bay Rabicano
6.25% - Bay

I am leaning towards Autumn Cat he has the best of both in him Being Smart Little Lena and High Brow Cat I have contacted his owner.
