Unexpected Results?

Anyone ever had a foal that was a very unexpected color? I have a bay mare, in foal to a bay stallion, and expect a bay foal, but without conclusive testing of mare and stallion, I know there is a small chance of ending up with a chestnut or black foal, or a foal with more white than expected.

So, what is the most exexpectedly colored/marked foal you've ever had/ seen?

A bay roan mare (not sure what the exact term would be for that but she was strawberry roan with black mane, tail & legs) her sire was grey and her mother bright bay that we put too a black TB stallion produced a chestnut filly
The TB sires was chestnut though so I suppose they throw back

It wasn't a "throw back" both parents were heterozygous black so they were both heterozygous red as well, and they both gave their red genes which made a chestnut.

The most unexpected result I have heard of recently is White Bliss the white foal out of two bay parents. The foal did not even have a gray horse in his dam or sires lines. Its apparently the result of a KIT gene. He has a 50/50 shot of passing that on to any future offspring. An article on his sale a harrisburg. $240,000 For White Standardbred | Standardbred Canada

Not impossible obviously but the most unexpected we had at work this year.

A black mare with minimal white and a bay stallion produced a dark red chestnut filly with loads white.

Not that it wasn't possible but I was totally surprised when my brown mare & sorrel stallion put this on the ground:



Not that she was spotted, I did expect that but that she was not only black but black from the get-go. I guess the reason it surprised me so much that I had bred a sorrel mare to two different black stallions hoping to get a black foal and ended up with bays.

I have a very spotted appy mare, her papers said palomino. But after much research it was determined that she was buckskin, bred to a bay stud. The popped out a solid palomino filly. I knew the possibility was there, but I guess I dint really expect it to happen.

DARK brown mare with small star and 2 small socks, bred to a solid black stallion, out came the horse I'm currently riding. (Somewhat) flaxen chestnut with 4 medium socks (above fetlock) and star/stripe/snip. We knew there was a chance, stallions father was a chestnut, and the mare has thrown chestnut before, so obviously genetically possible. Just seems a little funny to get a red head with chrome out of such dark parents with such minimal white.

Not my colt... But this mini baby popped into my head from a thread last year... Sire was a silver buckskin tobiano, dam was a silver smokey brown... Foal was born chestnut with strange purple skin and tested as ee/aa/ZZ, which was according to the breeder a 0.2% chance!

The thread is on another forum, so don't think I am allowed to link to it.
