If one wanted to learn more about genetics, and colours what would be a good place to start... eg good books etc..??

I was at a Horse SA workshop extravaganza a few years ago when Jeanette Gower was promoting her book. She did a great job, and kept her cool even when a colleague and I (we were both there by co-incidence, not design) got a bit carried away with playing with her bits of coloured card and tried combinations that were a bit more than she intended.

However, I haven't read the book and have no idea whether it goes into all the colours that seem to have been invented in recent (relatively) years.

Back in my day only ponies were black and white or brown and white, and they were piebald or skewbald. I could go on, but lunch calls Laughing

wikid !!! dad says MAYB. i will get 2 put her 2 Roc !!! cuz Dad wanted 2 put her 2 a thoroughbred stallion an get a racehorse bt its gonna cost 2 much rite nw so he sed mayb i cud get a foal outa her 1st !!! 1/2 QH an 1/2 TB !!

Dear Amy

Sadly, 'getting a racehorse' isn't quite as simple as putting a TB mare to a TB stallion (just ask how many of us have 'failed' racers at home).

Also, the stud fee is just the beginning of a potential money pit. Worst case scenario is that you could end up with massive vet bills, no foal and a dead mare.

May I ask why you want to breed your mare?

That book would be 'Horse Colour Explained'
And I think she does go into pretty much all colours - including the somewhat 'new' ones lol Apparently its very good - but have not read it myself.

Horse Colour Explained covers - chestnut, black, bay, dun, buckskin, palomino, overo, tobiano, sabino, appaloosa (all patterns), taffy (aka silver) and champagne. Don't think anything was mentioned about Pearl which I think is a new one. That's what I can remember from off the top of my head lol.

I like it, got some gorgeous photos Smile

Ahhhhhhhhh CarolineP, Amys dad has had racehorses all his adult life and has a lot to do with them Smile He has one that has just recently retired from racing I think.... Amy will be able to tell you exactly.... Smile

Horse Colour Explained is a pretty good book... which reminds me, I have to order another copy of it as we gave our copy to my inlaws. Smile
