    Default Spin off: What color is my pony? Links fixed!

    Maggie is palomino with darker legs, a dorsal stripe and brindling. So gurus, what color is she really? Her parents are both POAs, but I'm not sure of their base colors or coat patterns.

    Maggie

    Attachments are fixed, sorry about that!

    I don’t know either! But I will say, LP (Appy color gene) can do some WEIRD things to colors.

    This horse


    Turned this color

    The horse above has been DNA tested and is Black with Dun, so she is a grulla!

    There is an appy at my barn, who appears to be a dark chestnut (with blanket) but his legs are a very dark seal brown – almost like a chestnut bay. I have no idea what his “real” color is – what ever it is, it has been modified by LP.

    If she has a dorsal stipe then I think you can double register her as palamino and for sure as a dun. (The pictures wouldn't open for me)

    What the fudge?! What are the other coat modifiers present?

    Back to the OP - I don't see the brindling in the first pic and I can't see the second one. But maybe a red dun? Or even a silver dapple dun?

    My guess is that you have a dunalino = chestnut base coat + cream gene + dun gene.

    However, if she is out of POA parents she could have the LP gene and as Appsolute said, it can do some crazy things to a horse's color.

    We had a what we thought was a breeding stock Appaloosa that was completely solid with just some mottling around the lips and eyes that shed her winter coat out as a 6 year old and was a complete lepoard!

    Are we talking about body brindling or leg barring?
    If it is just leg barring- no full body brindling, my vote is definitely dun factored.

    Arrgh! I only opened the photobucket to put pictures on CoTH and it is fighting me tooth and nail! Here's the brindling on my facebook. Definitely full body!

    Wow, do you know if they have a genetic test yet for brindle?

    OMG. That's awesome.
    No input from me on brindling...except that it looks really neat!

    Looks like brindle to me...how cool!

    I think there or brindles that are that way because they are Chimera's and others that have it in their colour gene (and so it is passed to offspring). Do you have any information on her sire/dam and grandsire/granddam colour wise?

    I *think* her mother is dun and her sire is chestnut, but her dam doesn't have a dorsal stripe because she has a blanket extending from her withers. Gorgeous mare, Res. Grand at the POA International, grand-dam was sorrel with snowflakes that roaned out, grand-sire was a palomino leopard.

    Since the brindling didn't appear until she was 4, does that argue against chimerism or does the LP gene make anything possible?
