Hi all,
I have a bay mare that i am considering sending to a blue roan stallion.
His sire is a black overo, who is by a tri coloured pintaloosa.
His dam is a blue roan, who is by a black minimal pinto.
The mares breeding is unknown, but when bred to a chesnut she has produced a bay, a brown and a chesnut. (dont know if that helps any)
What are the colour possibilities of this bay/blue roan cross?
Any input would be fantastic- thanks!

Hi Renee,
Well you have an interesting color possibility actually.
I would say you have a better chance of getting a roan with the slight chance of getting a pinto.
Does the stallion have any pinto markings at all? His "roan" could have actually come from the appaloosa roaning rather than a true roan. So in that case he could throw some appaloosa, but more than likely just a foal that will roan out with age.
Since the mare has produced bay, brown and chestnut, she obviously has a chance of producing all of the above, so considering the blue roan stallion is actually a black, I would say you have a 50/50 chance of getting either a black based, or red based foal with either pinto or appy markings, or a solid, unless of course the blue roan is homozygous for black. Then you will have a black based foal.
I know that's not a whole lot of help, but it's some kind of an idea anyway :-)

Sandy,
Thats great thanks- i really had no idea at all about how the roaning gene works. But i would be happy with a blue roan myself!! LOL Any of the possiblities sound good though!
Thanks :-) :-)
