I have 4 appy color questions I hope someone can shed some light on.

1. If a solid mare is bred to a roan appy what are you likely to get re foal color? If the foal does get appy colouring not just characteristics will it just be appy roan like dad?

2. If the said foal did roan is there anyway of telling how much? Will it just be over the rump like the sire or does it have the potential to roan right out?

3. If a solid mare is bred to a spotted blanket appy what appy coloring could the foal have?

4. If a foal is born that is only appy roan is there any roaning at birth or does this happen over time?

Thanks :-)

yikes! I am an appy breeder (miniatures)...and personally, the miniature breed makes it much harder to predict outcomes with so many pintos/solids/appies being mixed. That being said.....Chances are slim (unless very strong appy backgrounds on both sides) that you'll get much color from those breedings at all. The appy with the blanket has the most possibility of producing a colored foal, but again, only if there are strong appy genetics in the pedigree.
1) Roan to solid, you're more likely to get solid....if you get any color at all, it'll probably be roan. 2)This can be minimal(like dad) or it can be full roan (sometimes hard to tell at birth thru baby fur). 3)Also, many color out over time. Appies are known for it.

Check out this site for more appy color genetics information....it'll make your head spin, but it's helpful

Yes, appy genetics are fun (not really) I have a solid sorrel w/o any characteristics out 2 blanket appys, and both their sires and dams are colored appys. One never knows. My sister breed a foundation AQHA buckskin mare to a marble appy stud, he is about 50% appy. and she got a beautiful bay colt w/ White butt & spots over loin & hips.
When breeding for color, it is a crap shoot.

How long is a piece of string? Nobody would be able to even hazard a guess as to the color probabilities of an Appaloosa foal.
Roaning isn't noticeable at birth usually, it generally takes at least a few months {while the birth coat is shedding}for it to be noticeable. Some roan at a couple of years, others at about 10years and others never.
That's the joy and frustration of breeding Appaloosas:-)
