    Bird Catcer spots are weird - they can come and go when they want really.

    Google 'brindle horses' and the links to him are right up the top. I just cut & pasted from there. I did realise afterwards that the AQHA might confuse people :D

    Do I see a brindle maybe joining the stallion ranks at Coliban :p If they are a mutation of roan one would fit right in down there **)
  5. Are you a clairvoyant, Tintara?*#) hahaha!:p or I might be bringing a zebra out? lol!

    When the Youngs had him, he told me that only the liver chestnut mares produced roans when put to Catch A Bird.
    Dont know how or why though :confused:

    IMO, the mares colour had nothing to do with the foals being roan. Cool coincidence though!

    IMO Catch a Bird isnt a true "brindle" - if your familiar with the colour in dogs & cattle then his colour doesnt really match up. Altho it is still very unusal.
    I found this pic on google tho, that is what I would call a proper brindle...

    I agree; I believe it is generally accepted that he was a mutation of roan as he produced true roan progeny from non-roan mares but never reproduced his own coat pattern.

    Wow Leanne, that horse looks awesome.

    That roany brindle thing is kinda odd! It's like you got a boxer and turned it into a horse :/
