Just be aware that if you use the unknown option on hoomozygosity it will give you some pretty bizare results

It will give you every option, homozygous or not, which in turn will give you every option under the sun, depending on how much you know of the genetics of your horse. I love that calculator. We have spent many a days together... yes I said days lol

I spent many an hour on this site as well. My solid chestnut mare (from bay and sorrel parents) was bred to a black (homozygous)and grullo tobiano paint stud. What I got was a solid liver chestnut???(still shedding out foal coat) with a tiny white spot on the forehead....lol

You sure that she's a liver chestnut? If he is truely a homozygous black stud then you should've got a black foal UNLESS your mare has a hidden brown genetic in which your liver chestnut is going to shed out to be brown. Or, she's just going to shed out black and came out brown.

Right now he (colt) has very light cream legs with a dark ring around each hoof (which are currently light), light sorrel on the top half, with a very small white spot in the middle of his forehead. He is starting to shed his foal coat around the nose and eyes (looks very funny) and the back of his ears. Color right now is liver. My mare's previous filly (15 yrs ago) changed color 5 times before settling on a light shade of sorrel dun.

Yeah, It doesn't sound like he's going to be a chestnut or a liver chestnut to me lol. Sorry I tend to refer to all foals as she.

I don't think I understand the color calculator? Here's what I put:
Sire- homozygous black, hetro tobiano and sabino
Dam-solid buckskin,hetro agouti,black

I got NO chance of a solid offspring?? How can that be? Sire is not homo for tobiano or sabino. I got tobiano or sabino black, smokey black, buckskin and bay. I just don't understand LOL

I know - depending on my combo's I always got a 16 - 37% chance of color - ended up with a solid that is shedding out to almost chocolate...Oh well...it is always a surprise.
