Hello! I hope someone can help me out. I have a Blue Roan Medicine Hat paint that I bred to a homozygous pure black stud. My mare is 99% white with pink skin and has Blue roan on ears(hat) ,chest,buutock-two blue eyes. Mares sire is loud black/white paint and dam is exactly like her except red roan. APHA classifies my mare as Sabino. What are color possibilities with this Medicine Hat? She is 210 days and i can't wait!

Hi Lynda:

I dont know much about medicine hats, but according to the homozygous black stud and blue roan sabino mare, here are your possibilities according to the horse coat color calculator:



Offspring Color Probability

25.00% - Blue Roan Sabino
25.00% - Blue Roan
25.00% - Black Sabino
25.00% - Black

you can input your info at this site for all the color possibilities of any horse using the sire and mare info;

Do you have any pictures of your mare and of her sire and dam?? I suspect that she may be more then just Sabino but I can't say for sure without pictures and I would love to see her anyway. :-)

As far as base color goes you will have a fifty-fifty chance of black or blue roan.

Good Luck!!

Medicine hats are homozygous for the paint gene, so no matter what color she/he comes out, the foal will be a paint/tobiano/sabino. The maximum white throws great patterns. Plus, she could still roan, too. Those are different genes affecting the white pattern, the tobiano and the sabino. Your mare has them both, but I'd say you have a 90% chance of seeing a tobiano result. Congrats!
