COLOR



Copyright © 2007 Anne Johnson


As a buckskin, Yeager has a 50% chance of passing his dilute color (Buckskin, Palomino or Smokey Black) on to his offspring. With grey mares, foals will also have a 50% chance of inheriting his creme gene, but the mare will pass on an additional 50% chance that any base color will grey out. So no matter what, you'll end up with a great sporthorse—plus you'll have a chance to get a unique color!


 

Below are some basic tables giving examples of how Yeager's Creme Gene
combines with different colored mares:

 

Non-Dilutes = Chestnuts, Bays and Blacks.
Single-Dilutes = Palominos, Buckskins and Smokey Blacks.
Double-Dilutes
= Cremellos, Perlinos and Smokey Creams.
