  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi! So the short of it is I'd just love it if people who have tested their horses for the A and E alleles (but also any other coat genes are helpful) could post a picture of the horse and the data you got back. Info on family trees is the next best thing! Thank you very much for your help~ The...
  2. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I bought this late yearling(6-6-17) in January and she is registered as a red roan on her papers. Her dad was registered grey but looks more creamy with a red hint. Is there any possibility she could turn that color? She has her full winter wooly coat and it's hard to tell. Her face is creamy...

    Hey Everyone! First post here...I just joined the forum to try and figure out the cause or name of these stripes that my palomino mare has on her barrel during the summer. They're not on her winter coat, and are only a slight shade darker than her normal palomino. In certain light you even have...

    Sent my horse's hair to Texas A&M for genetics test. He was sold originally as a QH cross at auction in April which I know is a slap on random breed name so he would be sold. Always thought Morgan or Standardbred. Results came back....1) Trakehner, 2) Columbian Paso Fino and 3) Fell Pony??? I...

    Hey Everyone! For a college project I am researching HYPP (Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis) I know it is a controversial subject especially when you start looking into the deliberate breeding of horses with the gene for HYPP especially in the Halter Industry. For this project I am going to be...

    Hello, I am new to this forum. I noticed the forum on here about horse colors and had to post this girl! I've never been that great with colors or genetics so I was wondering what are some of your opinions about this girl... This is Misty. She is an appendix mare that I trained last year. Her...
  7. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So my friend and I have been having a friendly disagreement about the color of the horse she rides. This horse, an OldenburgxPercheron, is often called roan and she thinks he's roan as well. But he doesn't look roan to me. I don't have a picture of my own to post, but I do have a link to a...

    I have a 12 year old mare that is not registered and has unknown parents, but have always assumed she is a tobiano black and white, but i ran genetic testing and her tests came back negative, not a carrier at all! (nn for tobiano) So question for all the paint horse coat pattern experts out...

    I have a little Appaloosa Shire cross mare but she dosn't show any appy characteristic. I am in the process of getting her registered but have run into some issues. I have a copy of her dams papers but i haven't revived the cover report from her previous owner. I can get her DNA tested but...

    Hi, my friend sent this horse to me asking what color she is, and i would say blue roan, but apparently she has a brown head. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance! :D

    So my mare has none. Nothing. not even a tiny bump. She has normal sized chestnuts. They never grow out really far, but they're not tiny. Anyway, is there a reason she wouldn't have them? She's a STB. free-legged pacer. 11 years old. Could it have anything to with her breed? Or that she's...
  12. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I am in the process of slowly, very slowly, attempting to piece together the potential pedigree of my one mare that was purchased in March. I have had very little to go off of except for the name "Eli" and that the vet approximates her age to be around 8-10. A few months ago I came across a...

    .. and every horse for the last 9 generations on the stallions papers was a bay with a blaze, then if you bred the two together would the chances of the resulting foal being bay with a blaze 100%? (PS: This is a metaphorical question. Both horses, the stallion and the mare do exist, but there...

    My pony mare is due pretty soon, and I'm trying to guess what color the foal will be. I have no idea on the parent's genetics. The sire is sorrel with dapples and also has a flaxen mane and tail. The dam is a bay roan, but I do know that her dam was a sorrel paint. Any ideas? I was thinking...

    Hey all! So I'm sure some of you have already heard of the many extensive simulated horse games out there like Horseland and Howrse, but I wanted to let you know about one that takes things a little bit farther! Hunt and Jump Inc. (Hajinc) is a free automated simulated horse game where you...

    This is the newest member of our horse family. We were told he is full blood arabian BUT I've never seen his coloring before on an arabian. He has very arab features such as nose scoop, head and neck with the up held tail. Just having trouble pin pointing if he is in fact mixed with something or...

    I am wondering if, Romeo my new POA stallion has enough white to produce a colored foal (appy color) out of a soild mare. I am just wondering. I am most likely not going to breed. I am just interested to see what you say. Here are some Pictures of his color, sorry not that great of pictures...
