If the stallion carries two gray genes (homozygous), the foals will always be gray.
If he has one gray gene (heterozygous), he has a 50% chance of passing the gray gene on, and 50% not. If the foal does not inherit the grey gene, it would depend on what color the stallion was before he grayed out because all gray horses are born a "normal" color, which the gray masks.
Thanks, makes alot of sense when you explain it like that. :) also, a question..
I had a few spot appy he was all white with pink skin and one spot on his rump since he was born and we had him until he was 12. His skin was freckled around his face but fur white. What would you say this horse is? Would you just say he is a few spot appy and not white? I have always been confused about it. Ill attach a picture although its not real good but its the only one I have.. Thanks. :)
