Hi everyone, just a quick question on the roan colour. I have noticed a few palomino or buckskin stallions producing a roan. Is there a link with the roan and the single dilute, or is it just a coincidence and the mares must have carried the roan gene?

If I cross my chestnut mare with a bay roan stallion, I assume the colour possibilities are chestnut, bay, red roan or bay roan (and even black and blue roan?). Now i'm wondering if palomino and buckskin are also a possibility.

thanks in advance

29.17% - Bay Roan
29.17% - Bay
16.67% - Chestnut Roan
16.67% - Chestnut
4.17% - Blue Roan
4.17% - Black

Note, that this is "assuming" all modifiers are unknown. It depends on whether mare or stallion carries cream, silver, agouti, etc....Which can change up the answers ALOT.

oh, and roan is a completely different gene than cream. Roan can be in any color...if you have pallys and bucksking producing it, either sire or dam carries roan in addition to cream.

Thanks Diana, I had a feeling roan and single dilutes weren't linked, but when I suddenly started to notice a good few roans out of pallys etc it did make me wonder. I guess i'll just have to get a much closer look at the stallions and see if there are some roan hairs coming through
Thanks again
