So I am getting stuff together to color test my two youngsters, maybe Freyja, and also Stiffler.
Should I bother to test BOTH Fiona and Finn, or just one of them? (doing the combo red/back and agouti on them) They are full siblings. Same dam, same sire. They appear to be essentially the same color. Fiona is lighter than Finn right now (her yearling year, his 2 year old year) but Fiona also shed out much earlier this year than Finn did, and so has had more exposure/sun bleaching in her summer coat. It's also been suggested to me to test the dam, Freyja, for a possible cream. As to that, her mane is mostly black, her tail is mostly white, does it matter at all which I select from? I suspect not but thought I should confirm before sending them off.
Anyways, so that's looking at 4 potential tests to send off, it adds up, considering none will be bred and this is just to satisfy my own curiosity.
Just trying to decide if it is worth testing both Finn and Fiona, or is I should just test one of the two and assume the other sibling is the same? Advice from those who have done this before?
