Genetic makeup on my mare
Hey guys! Im trying to do the color coat calculator and don't know the genetic makeup of my mare! I know y'all color specialists will be able to help me out :wink:
She is a buckskin, of course. Her dam is a sorrel, her sire is a buckskin. She foaled a palomino foal out of a sorrel stallion.
Idk the sire's makeup either. He is a palomino, his sire was a palomino and his dam a sorrel. Would love for yŠll to tell me what to put in the color calc!
She being a buckskin, would be a bay with 1 cream gene-- the Stud being a palomino, being a chestnut/sorrel with 1 cream gene.
I'm no pro, though..
Your mare is heterozygous black (Ee), heterozygous cream (CRcr), and at least heterozygous agouti (A_). The sire is homozygous red (ee), heterozygous cream (CRcr), with an unknown agouti status.
So your mare has only 1 black gene (because her previous foal didn't get it) and probably has 2 Agouti genes (but could be just one).
The sire carries only 1 cream gene, he could be hiding agouti genes, but has no black
So I deduce your foal will be in order of likelyhood: palomino, buckskin, cremello, perlino, chestnut, bay
From the color calculator
Exactly what I was looking for, guys! NdAppy, you went and made my life easier and did my job for me! Lol, thank you so much!
I'm liking my chances at having an extremely nice baby with color to boot!
