What do you get when you cross a chestnut with a blue roan?
Theoretically, you have an equal chance at blue roan, black, bay roan, bay, red roan, or red. Now, that isn't taking anything else into consideration. If you know if the chestnut carries agouti, or if the blue roan is homozygous black or roan, for example, you can remove certain possibilities.
Mare is red, mare's mom is red, Mare's dad was red. Mom's dad was red.
Sire is heterozygous for color.
Methinks I'll have plain ol red, but someone else can put money on color!
This is what I got with just the basic info
18.75% - Blue Roan 18.75% - Black 18.75% - Bay Roan 18.75% - Bay 12.50% - Chestnut Roan 12.50% - Chestnut
Alright not to knock your horse or potential foal color... but I like blue roan A LOT... but not bay roan and usually not red roans. One local girl had a red roan and a blue roan, they looked pretty cool tied to her trailer together. Wonder how most people feel about the roans?
If I get a blue roan I'd be the happiest kid in class. For sure.
I absolutely love roans.
