    My mum just had a little filly born to her brown mare, (brown mares mother is bay and dad is grey) the foals sire is Bay (not sure on his parents colours)
    The foal has been born a brownish colour mums not sure if shes gunna be brown or turn grey,
    I know some of you are a wizz with this colour thing so can anyone tell me the chances of baby turning out grey? (she was hopoing for any colour but grey)
    Ill try and get photobucket working
    I havent seen the foal only pics as she lives in QLD

    no chance of grey if neither the sire or dam is grey

    grey is dominant gene and always expressed, if the mare is not grey then she doesn't carry a grey gene :D


    edited to add brown for foal colour
