My thoroughbred mare has the classic rabicano markings on her tail head and flank. Is this something that is dominant and will be passed on to offspring, or is it a 50/50 type thing?
Also, I am wondering what my color chances might be for this cross:
I am breeding my mare to a presumed Dunskin stud. His sire was a golden Palomino and his dam was bay dun. My mare is bay with the rabicano and I am pretty sure her sire was chestnut, so I guess that means her dam had to be bay. (?) I tried using the color calculator, but I was confused when it came to the extra options. Is palomino considered a red base color?
