Oh my gosh, that is devastating. Have you sat down with him and talked to him? As difficult and as heart breaking as it is, maybe there happened to be something came up or a reason why it happened.

I would surely hope that as much as you might not be close for a while because of this, it wouldn't affect your relationship. Life is going to be bringing up some trials, some big life trials that go past the trading of a cow for a horse-if it does affect your relationship, you have bigger problems on your hands than a horse.

He and I talked and sorted it all out. It was alot of miscommunication and misunderstanding. I know why he changed his mind and I understand it. He also understands how much I want her and is willing to help me achieve my dream.

So glad you guys figured out what happened. He seems like a really understanding guy, even more so because he wants to help you. You'll get there! Good luck :)

I hope you work it out, whether you get her or not, I'm sure it all happens for a reason.

As for the gray genetics, you'd really need to know her base color. She is heterozygous for gray, meaning she only carries one gray gene, we know this because she's had atleast one non gray foal, so she will pass gray on 50% of the time (meaning there is a 50% chance the foal will be gray). We also know she carries atleast one red gene, we know this because her foal is red based (palomino).

Palomino is a red horse w/ one cream gene, buckskin is bay w/ one cream gene. So both parents passed a red gene, and one parent (dad would be my guess) passed her a cream gene, that's how you got a palomino!

As for what she'll have this time, still hard to say w/out knowing her base color, but 50% chance of going gray, and w/ a buckskin dad it may be buckskin or palomino, could also be bay. I think there are some websites that can calculate colors for you, but they'd also need to know her base color.

So was that good and confusing? It seems so much easier to understand then it is to explain.

She's a pretty mare!
