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. :D

Henny's dam is a brown based perlino rather than a bay based, so Henny is a brown based buckskin. He's a regular looking buckskin in the summer, but turns a sooty charcoal color with mealy points in the winter. If you find the millions of pictures I've posted of him, you will see what I mean. :lol:

THAT'S pretty cool! I'm curious because I haven't color tested Patti yet, she's heterozygous for Tobiano and Neg for LWO. That's all I've done so far. I intend to do the Red/Black/Agouti test pretty soon. To ME she looks more Brown than Bay. When I took her to Color Congress she looked absolutely BLACK and she has had a black colt (he was homozygous black, sire was also black). All the color talk here on the forum has me curious.

Do you know the agouti status of the cremello? If he has regular A agouti, you might end up with a regular buckskin, since A is dominant over At.

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:.

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 not agouti at all, then that's going to end up a smokey black most likely then? Assuming she throws a black gene.

Yes, smoky black if she's not carrying agouti. Possibly a palomino if she's heterozygous for black and passes on a red gene.

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::p

I thought atomic deluxe was a NSH stallion? I had looked at breeding to him almost a decade ago or so.

Atomic Deluxe is NSH. Patti doesn't have enough Arabian to be a 1/2 Arab though, she's registered Pinto, didn't bother with NSH or 1/2 Saddlebred registry. She's around 3/4-7/8 Saddlebred.
