As you read the articles in the appy project on yahoo, you will see that black overrides brown. I would say for you, you will get a bay base. Think of the white in an appy as being poured over the horse while it is in the woumb. It depends on the white gene, how much of the underlying base coat it will let show through. With Jill being a few spot, she has a very strong group of white genes. Think of her having LPLP and Santana having LPlp. Your 19 mo filly may be LPlp because of the smaller amount of white. You could really end up with anything from a few spot to what your 19 mo looks like.
My mare has never been bred to an appy. All I know is that her first two babies were not outward appy's at birth. They could have roaned out...like Mom. I initially thought she was a few spot, but she was the color of her legs at birth. So, If you look at her now, she does have some strong LP going on there. Now look at Woody. His father had no appy, and was most likely a pinto. He hit the genetic jackpot.
So, I guess what I am saying...it is genetic roullete.
Also if you do a search on google on images and find appy breeding sites, they really do like to use few spots in their programs because they tend to throw more white, hence a louder baby. I think you are set up to get something cool. I can't wait to see picts.
Yes, ok I read your post about your mare's coloring. She is not a few spot. Since you already have color on your 19 mo old from her and the same sire, I would say you may get color on this new one. Once again..genetic roulette.
