At Vs A when breeding Cremello & "Bay"
When breeding a cremello to a bay, in the hopes of getting a buckskin, if the bay is really a brown, how is that going to effect the buckskin's coloration? Just curious. :D

Henny's dam is a brown based perlino rather than a bay based, so Henny is a brown based buckskin. He's a regular looking buckskin in the summer, but turns a sooty charcoal color with mealy points in the winter. If you find the millions of pictures I've posted of him, you will see what I mean. :lol:

THAT'S pretty cool! I'm curious because I haven't color tested Patti yet, she's heterozygous for Tobiano and Neg for LWO. That's all I've done so far. I intend to do the Red/Black/Agouti test pretty soon. To ME she looks more Brown than Bay. When I took her to Color Congress she looked absolutely BLACK and she has had a black colt (he was homozygous black, sire was also black). All the color talk here on the forum has me curious.

I'm looking for that Color Congress pic, for some reason it seems to have disappeared.

Do you know the agouti status of the cremello? If he has regular A agouti, you might end up with a regular buckskin, since A is dominant over At.
