If you mix these what will you get?
 
If you were to mix a black and white tobiano stallion with a black and white tobiano mare, will you pretty much be guarenteed a black and white tobiano foal?

Thanks for your time!

Not necesairly.

It all depends on genetics.

Are they homozygous black? Are they homozygous tobiano?

Without knowing whether or not one of them is homozygous for tobiano, or if either of them is a red (e) carrier, you have about a 70% chance of black tobiano. There is also a possibility for black (about 23% chance), chestnut (1.5~%), or chestnut tobiano (4.7~%)

Not only that allswim, there there is no guarantee how much of a pattern you would get either. You could get a very minimal or an extremely loud.

Yes the mare is (she's been tested and it's in her paperwork).....and I believe (but not sure) that the stallion is too.

They are both homozygous for black AND for tobiano?

If that is the case there is no other option but a black tobiano.

not sure on the tobiano but the black yes for sure.....I didn't know there was a test for the tobiano......thought it was just the pattern? Humm the things we learn everyday. So how would I know if they are for sure?

alliswim 01-04-2011 10:15 PM

Only testing would let you know for sure.

luvmytobipaint 01-04-2011 10:32 PM

Ok thanks for all the info. I'm gonna look in to that testing.
