Im breeding my Mare to this stud, but i cant figure his color out???
His owner says he was palomino when he was born then he went to a dunskin color now he almost looks gray or white lol, but he never throw a plain colored foal. His Dam is JR Holiday and Sire is Skip N Adios. So any ideas on his color, Would just like to know.
He looks grey because he is grey.
Yup he is grey and most likely your foal will end up grey as well.
this is my mare a grade quarter horse, and i was wondering, what color the foal might be. i know that it would be a guessing game but i would like a guess of what i might get.
You need to test your mare for lethal white overo before anything else. That should be your focus first - ensuring a healthy, live foal.
I agree with chiila. But to answer your question no clue what the foal might be born but i believe grey is dominant and while there's no way to tell how fast / slow it'll happen he/ she will probably end up greying out. You definitely should get your mare tested though before you breed not after.
okay i was going to do that when she goes to the vet for shots and check up. but still what would you guess?
I just told you i can not say what the foal will be born but it will most likely grey out like the sire did.
and i sent my comment before i saw yours sorry.
Lethal White Overo - Horse Coat Color
In terms of colour, no, it is not definite that the foal would be grey. I would assume that the stallion is only carrying one grey gene, since you said he has thrown coloured foals. That would give you 50% chance of grey. You said that he was palomino when born - a relatively easy colour to work with in terms of genetics. Crossed with your mare, there is a 50% chance the foal will be chestnut/sorrel, and 50% chance the foal will be palomino. Adding this in to the grey part, you have a 50% chance of grey, 25% chance of palomino, and 25% chance of chestnut.
