See that's where I'm confused too. I would figure two cream would be CRCR, one CRcr and none crcr. But I'm following what it says on the powerpoint I've been provided.

"-Codominant allele Ccr dilutes red pigment to yellow.
-Fully pigmented red horse is CC at this locus.
-Heterozygous CCcr dilutes bay to buckskin and chestnut to palomino but does not dilute black.
-Homozygous CcrCcr dilutes ALL colors except white or gray to pale cream (cremello) often with pink skin and blue eyes."

Wonder if I can get away with just label it CRCR etc.

The first horse I posted is just a plain ol' chestnut tobiano. Though I think she has frame due to her jagged markings (which I'm putting on the assignment LOL)

It's like they add more letters than they need to for identifying cream x.x

Using a "C" for no cream present and "Ccr" for cream present is really confusing O_o

What does she use for no champagne present?

Also kind of silly to have to list all the things that aren't present... you'd have a list a mile long if you included everything that can be identified currently (silver, pearl, champagne, splash, sabino, etc, etc.)

Yep. It was so half-assed backwards. I'm at least relieved to see that there are other people that do it.. Crcr would make much more sense for 1 copy, crcr for no cream, and CrCr for double cream. Le sigh.
