What color is Abby?
 
Abby is my 3 yr. old filly, sired by a black stud out of a chestnut mare.

So here's what I THINK I know:

Since black is dominant, and red is recessive, she is Ee.
Since agouti is dominant, but doesn't affect red coats, she is either Aa or aa.
But I'm not sure how the brown gene works, so she could be At?

She has a 2yr. old bay half brother, whose sire is listed as black on allbreedpedigree. You can see a picture here: Man With The Power Appaloosa

This is soooo confusing :?

ETA: The picture is of the 2yr. old's sire.

Went ahead and looked in your "barn" on here ad google Abby since you just go her.

This is her ad correct? Precious Six Moons, Appaloosa Horse For Sale in West Siloam Springs, Oklahoma - Appaloosa Horses for Sale, Appaloosa Horse Classified Ads, Appaloosa Stallions at Stud, - Appaloosa Horse Club

Going off of her pics on there she is a brown that gets extremely sunfaded. This is going off of the winter fuzzy pics if those are pictures of her.

I can't tell anything from the photo as it was taken in the shade.

My avatar pic is of her last summer.

Allison - the link I posted is her sale ad with multiple pictures of the horse on it.
