I will be breeding Ellie in the next month or so to a solid dunskin. I have always kind of wondered what her color was and if she would be homozygous for paint, so I am debating getting her tested.
I am fairly positive that she is a chestnut, but she has a dorsal stripe, which throws me off. I have had people tell me that she is a red dun because of that stripe, but she just looks too orangey to me. She also has some roaning in the summer.
Ellie's sire was a chesnut overo paint and her dam was a sorrel tobiano. So I really want to know what my chances would be of a paint foal.
So, what should I do here? Is it worth testing her? If so, what tests do I order through UCDavis?
