Oh! & yeah I read that about the lethal whites, I always figured it would be more in depth bc it was lethal. Now is that actually what causes the death, or is that like a side effect of what causes the death?

Edit- I actually looked it up bc I though it had something to do with cremes. See, I'm usually wrong ;) lol

It causes the foal to be born with an underdeveloped colon, which is what causes a painful death within 3 days of birth if it isn't put down right away.

And yes. There is no way Abby's dam could have been a buckskin out of a black and a sorrel.

From what I've seen, most smoky blacks either look like a fading black or somewhat brown.

And yes, a single dilute (buckskin, brownskin, palomino, smoky black) will only pass on the cream gene 50% of the time because it only has one gene to pass on. A double dilute (cremello, perlino, smoky cream) will pass on the cream gene every time because it carries two copies of it.

How would you learn about new things if you don't ask questions?

So because it's a homozygous frame overo it effects the colon?
So odd.
Haha your right ;) Questions are good. I never knew their was such genetics to coloring, always thought it was sorta a crabshoot. Haha.

I needa find me a cremello, or atleast a pally haha. Might keep me happy.
What about a grullo? Is that a dilute too?
Thanks so much for answering all this :)

Grullo is black + dun. And technically it is a form of a dilute.

where does one go to get their horse tested for color? I'm curious to know what colors my horses actually are. My TB is registered as dkb/br. (which I assume to mean dark bay/brown?) and my appy colt they registered as "dark bay or brown" and i'm thinking he's probably this brownskin that's been referenced here so many times. Haha

It is fun to guess at the color though like others have said. In this case I think brownskin really does apply to the OP's horse. :)
