    I have never seen the LP gene work so fast!!

    foal is LP/lp,Ee,Aa,gg

    Sire is homozygous LP, (and grey neg)

    Dam is one of our serious performance mares. Foal bred specifically for performance.

    Pregnancy lasted 386 DAYS!!!!!!!

    sire is Hussar of Independence
    Knabstrupper-Zucht of Independence

    dam is Remi Aotearoa Aotearoa.wmv

    As you can see by the goggles, The very first requirement was to test for the grey gene, to confirm that there had not been a mistake with the frozen semen!!

    One day

    One week

    three weeks

    5 weeks

    8 weeks

    10 weeks

    HI Belambi

    I have a very special little visitor to the stud at the moment.......a loud leopard colt by Alf........hes rather smart

    so what colour do you think yours is?? you know Im not that hot on colour and only just learning all about it....:)

    Well, I know form DNA test she is bay, carrying chestnut and one agouti, leopard gene (but may stay as a marble appy roan, which is different from normal roan in that the head colours).. may develop a few spots.. and is grey negative. What pattern may develop is part of the fun!
  7. The speed she is changing color is incredible! Thanks for sharing.
    It took good 5 years for a Mega Dream colt we bred to go from a bay with a blanket to a roan with the blanket:) Absolutely unrecognisable:)))

    It will be very interesting indeed to see what colour this chappie ends up.

    Well, It sounds really strange to say this, But i have never seen this so quick before.. and..I have never had a mare go 386 days either.. and.. i wandered if there may some how be a connection between the two events. Probably not.. but it is interesting!

    Looking good!**)

    so when will she get spots?

    Lovely :) i am guessing Snowflake or just Varnish. So may not get the classic spots. Then again sometimes Snowflake and/or spots don't show up for years. Appies are a bit like the proverbial box of chocolates :)

    not sure really. I doubt snowflake, but think there may be a few black spots buried deeply there.. along with mainly varnishing.
