Perlino x Liver Chestnut: What could I get??
Very soon I will be breeding two of my horses, a liver chestnut morgan, and a sorrel quarter horse. I have been using a Coat Color Calculator to see what colors I could get out of different horses, but this calculator doesn't have a liver chestnut option. So, does anyone know what I could get out of a Perlino and a Liver Chestnut? Thanks sooo much :)
P.s. this is the calculator I've been using: Color Calculator
Depending on whether the perlino is homozygous for black and bay or not, and whether the chestnut has any bay genes hidden:
Also, it might be possible that the Perlino is hiding something like dun, which could also be a factor.
Genetically, there is no known difference between a liver chestnut/sorrel and a red chestnut/sorrel and a light chestnut/sorrel. It's just a different shade of the same colour. If the foal comes out palomino with a liver chestnut base, it may appear slightly different than a palomino with a red chestnut base.
^^Exactly. I don't keep up on all the research like Chiilaa and others do, but as far as I know, they've not identified the gene that determines shade within a particular color. So, liver chestnut or very light sorrel, the potential results will be the exact same. The shade will be the only guessing game.
What smrobs stated. There is no known gene at this point in time that makes liver chestnuts a different color than the lighter sorrels/chestnuts. Genetically they are exactly the same RED (ee).
Thank you everyone!! :)
