When breeding a cremello to a bay, in the hopes of getting a buckskin, if the bay is really a brown, how is that going to effect the buckskin's coloration? Just curious.
Yeah, I don't know yet. I have to get her color tested. Just reading a bunch of different color posts on here got me to wondering, since I put her in foal to a cremello.If she's got the lighter colored muzzle and flanks in the winter then yes, she's brown.
Personally, I love a brownskin horse. They are very beautiful, but I've always liked the darker colored horses LOL.
ETA: it's very hard to tell in that pic, it appears that her flank is slightly lighter than the rest of her, but her muzzle isn't. Makes me wonder if she's actually a fading black instead of an Agouti carrier :think:.
WELLLLLLLL, guess I better send the lab a note to do some more testing. OBVIOUSLY it's totally unreasonable to ask me to wait until the foal is born to see what color it is......:wink:Yes, smoky black if she's not carrying agouti. Possibly a palomino if she's heterozygous for black and passes on a red gene.
