Buckskin + ??? = Cremello
 
So my horse Princey is a Cremello.

What color combo would make Cremello?

I do know his Sire is a Buckskin. So a Buckskin + what would = a Cremello?

Just curious. I have his papers, I'm just really too lazy and have a bumbed leg, so I'd rather not have to get up and walk to the barn and go through all his files.

I'm just curious. I can't remember for the life of me what color his Dam is. :?

There's a lot of possibilities. Anything else that carries the cream gene. buckskin, palomino, cremello, perlino, smoky black, smoky cream, etc etc.

Right, I know it takes 2 creme genes to creat a Cremello.

So then if you know, why did you ask?

Not really. A double dilute is not necessarily a cremello.

If the dam was a buckskin, her horse would be a perlino, not a cremello.

Cremello is chestnut based. Perlino is bay based...

Ah but then face both parents could be buckskins and you could still end up with a cremello. both sire and dam would have to be heterozygous for black and both pass on their red gene. :-)

Sounds like luck of the draw to me with all of those combinations.

I am so having a flash back to 10th grade biology class with the little diagrams of the different color guinea pigs and if you bred guinea pig A to guinea pig B what was your chances of getting what color off spring.

You people who get all this stuff amaze me. Thank you.

True, but the context of my statement was correcting the false statement that the dam could have been any horse with a creme gene, which is not true...:wink:

A Carroll diagram AB - invented by Lewis Carroll while he was a math lecturer. Just so you know :-P
