What color will my foal be?

Postby Nancy » Thu Nov 01, 2012 12:44 pm

:?: :?: :?: I have a deep brown or almost black/3 white stocking and a white star on his forhead stallion (mother was a red paint (I beleive)) and a white or albino mare that accidently got bred. I know nothing about the little albino.. What color should I get from these two??

Hi Nancy

There is no such thing as an albino horse... horses that 'mimic' this are called double dilutes (cremello, perlino, smokey cream) - or highly expressed white genes like Maxim sabinos, although they will still have dark eyes.

Your stallion will test as brown genetically and if he is out of a red and white mare, if you mean chestnut then he will carry one chestnut / red gene and one black plus brown/agouti
If by red and white you mean bay and white then your stallion may or may not carry red / chestnut
Tobiano. Overo etc (paint) are not recessive genes so your stallion can't produce paint foals unless he is bred with a pain mare, then the mare could pass that gene to the foal but wont be anything to do with the sire... if that makes sense.

Does the mare in foal to your boy have blue or pink eyes? If not what colour are they? Is there any colour on her body at all and if so what is it?

After you can give me a description of the mare's colour based on the above I will be able to tell you what colour's you could get
