    All the smarty pants in here can anyone tell me what a buckskin silver dun x smokey black would produce ? i have had a Miniature filly born from these two parents and she has ice blue eyes, all pink skin, a light beige type coloured coat with shading marks on her neck from what i see and a dorsal stripe and a browny coloured mane, we were thinking she might be perlino dun ?

    I dont consider myself to be a dummy as far as colour goes but this one has me thinking ! I cant upload photos so if anyone wants to see i can text or email photos for you to upload.

    Thanks guys :))

    LOL - get prepared to shell out for testing on quite a few factors to know for sure as here is a close approximation to all the possibilities from that cross!!!!!! (Its an approximation because even the Equine Colour Calculator doesn't have a Silver Dunskin option as a parent, so I cheated and called one a Dunskin and one a Silver Smokey Black)

    8.79% - Buckskin
    8.79% - Dunskin
    8.79% - Silver Buckskin
    8.79% - Silver Dunskin

    4.39% - Bay Dun
    4.39% - Perlino
    4.39% - Perlino Dun
    4.39% - Bay
    4.39% - Silver Bay
    4.39% - Silver Perlino
    4.39% - Silver Perlino Dun
    2.93% - Smoky Black
    2.93% - Smoky Grullo
    2.93% - Silver Smoky Black
    2.93% - Silver Smoky Grullo
    1.56% - Dunalino
    1.56% - Palomino
    1.46% - Silver Smoky Cream Dun
    1.46% - Silver Grullo
    1.46% - Silver Smoky Cream

    I sent the pics to Tintara. Looks like smoky perlino carrying silver. Possibly dun as well.

    You left out the homozygous silver bit for mum :). So foalie is silver AND ...... everything else :rolleyes:. Smokey perlinos (double dilute of black buckskin) can be born very dark but the silver should eventually lighten off the mane and tail.

    How do you know mum is Homo Silver not Hetero?

    Given the blue eyes I would guess she'd be a a double dilute of some kind, possibly dun on top, and possibly silver on top.
