Appy, Friesian, Curly Color Questions
After reading about peoples 2010 breedings it got me once again dreaming of "someday" when I breed one of my girls. So I thought I'd ask a couple of "what would you get" questions! This is all down the road after my girls are grown up, trained etc and I still haven't decided what I want to do, too many very nice stallions out there.....
Anyway, what color/colors would you possibly get breeding a Buckskin Snowcap Appy filly (out of Buckskin Blanket mom and Bay Fewspot dad) to a homozygous black (Friesian) stallion?
Or breeding same homozygous black (Friesian) stallion to a Bay Near Leopard filly (out of Bay Leopard dad and Chestnut Leopard mom)?
And my other question for Bashkir Curly people, what are the chances of getting a curly coat if you breed a Curly with a non Curly horse? And is that a no no in the Curly world?
If you have a hymozygous (sp check) curly stud 100%. If he is not hymozygous 50%ish. As for the Friesians, I've noticed that crosses usually pick up the mares colors more so than the studs..... (just something I've noticed)
I can't answer your curly questions, as I don't know the inheritance of curly. But I did just read a magazine article about curlies. One of the curlie registries doesn't allow outcrosses to be registered, but others do. So you may find some breeders won't allow outcrossing, but I would guess more do than don't. Just like the Friesians: FPS/FHANA doesn't allow crossing, but the other Friesian registries do. FPS approved stallions won't stand to non-Friesians, but others will.
I believe she is a true Snowcap, correct?
Boy I'm learning alot here, I thought fewspots and snowcaps always had colored/patterned babies. All of this color stuff really confuses me, lol!! I wish you could just order the color and pattern you want, lol, wouldn't that be fun?

Everything below is based on the most current research-- no tests are available yet, and so it is still being determined "by observation" and "by progeny"----
Appaloosa coloring is a multi-gened situation. There is LP (the "on-off switch) that creates characteristics and sometimes thinner manes and tails, app roaning, etc, and then there are "pattern genes"-- which are necessary for blankets and leopards, but are only visible when LP is there to reveal them.....
"True" (LPLP) snowcaps and fewspots will always pass on one copy of LP, and, barring rare and unusual amounts of suppression, horses with at least one copy of LP will have at least Appaloosa characteristics. (Mottled skin, striped feet, sclera.) Inheriting LP (without suppression) by itself guarantees that much. Many LP horses also develop some amount of appaloosa type roaning as they age.
However patterns (blanket, leopard) are not "part" of LP-- they are merely revealed by its presence-- they are inherited seperately. To have a pattern, the LP horse also has to have inherited pattern genes/modifiers that creat that dense white with spots area over the horses hips, back, body, etc.
