So this is my cross for 2009 :P Due Jan 31st
I'm just wondering what colors/patterns I should expect to get? I've done the calc.

Both my mares parents are sorrel, so I know she only carries the red gene. But alot of her family has the roan gene. She is also sabino, but it doesn't show anywhere but her socks. She carries the white supression gene that doesn't really allow her to show her sabino.

She has bits of roaning on the flank as well.

The sire however is another matter altogether. :P
He's homozygous tobiano, but also carries the splash overo gene(it's hidden on him, but he has had tovero babies out of qh mares, blue eyed)
He also throws alot of roan in his babies
He's bay, with 47% of babies being bay, 21% black, and 35% sorrel. The rest of percentages are all colors fancy couldn't have.His babies have been 83% tobiano and 17% tovero.

There's his website if you want to see him

Now on to my questions :P
1. what color am i most likely to get do you think? he has thrown most of his blacks when bred to sorrel mares. is it possible i could get my black and white?
2. could my mare throw her sabino gene? if so what would happen?
3. If my mare has roan in her background, is it possible I could get a roan baby? Or is that gene dominant and she would show it if she had it?
4. The dreaded height question :P. The sire is 16.1. My mare is 14.2. All the babies I've seen by him are really big. Is it possible I could get a big baby out of a small mare like her? She has a halter background/medium bonestructure.
