Color Calculator

I got an email from the people I got Razz from, and she sent me a color calculator. It is really cool and so I thought I would share it. With it you enter as much information on the sire and dam as you know and it comes up with the possibilities of foal color. I did it for Razz and we got
13.18% - Buckskin Tovero
13.18% - Bay Tobiano
13.18% - Bay Tovero
13.18% - Buckskin Tobiano
4.39% - Bay
4.39% - Bay Overo
4.39% - Smoky Black Tobiano
4.39% - Black Tobiano
4.39% - Black Tovero
4.39% - Buckskin Overo
4.39% - Smoky Black Tovero
4.39% - Buckskin
1.46% - Smoky Black
1.46% - Black Overo
1.46% - Black
1.46% - Smoky Black Overo
1.17% - Palomino Tovero
1.17% - Chestnut Tobiano
1.17% - Chestnut Tovero
1.17% - Palomino Tobiano
0.39% - Chestnut Overo
0.39% - Chestnut
0.39% - Palomino
0.39% - Palomino Overo

That is if shes buckskin, if shes actually smokey black she gets
17.58% - Smoky Black Tobiano
17.58% - Black Tobiano
17.58% - Black Tovero
17.58% - Smoky Black Tovero
5.86% - Smoky Black Overo
5.86% - Smoky Black
5.86% - Black Overo
5.86% - Black
1.17% - Chestnut Tovero
1.17% - Chestnut Tobiano
1.17% - Palomino Tobiano
1.17% - Palomino Tovero
0.39% - Chestnut Overo
0.39% - Chestnut
0.39% - Palomino Overo
0.39% - Palomino
So a number of choices, not sure what its gonna be, will have to wait and find out.

And then for Gypsy
21.97% - Bay Roan Overo
21.97% - Bay Roan
21.97% - Bay Overo
21.97% - Bay
1.56% - Chestnut Roan Overo
1.56% - Chestnut Roan
1.56% - Chestnut Overo
1.56% - Chestnut
1.46% - Blue Roan Overo
1.46% - Blue Roan
1.46% - Black Overo
1.46% - Black

So Pretty much how I thought, will change if sire is homozygous for roan, but not sure about that and as far as I know shes never had a "colored" foal.

And Belle
29.17% - Buckskin
29.17% - Bay
16.67% - Palomino
16.67% - Chestnut
4.17% - Smoky Black
4.17% - Black
She seems pretty simple compared to the rest.


And this year I was thinking of breeding Bailey(red dun) to Jardi's Tangle (palomino roan)and this is what I got:
12.50% - Red Dun Roan
12.50% - Red Dun
12.50% - Palomino Roan
12.50% - Palomino
12.50% - Dunalino Roan
12.50% - Dunalino
12.50% - Chestnut Roan
12.50% - Chestnut

So looks pretty even on different colors, not that it really matters to me what color tehy are, but I think bay is my favorite, and I might get one out of Belle, well have to wait and see.
