Just in case everyone isnt bored to tears by this stuff I got more DNA results back on Hidden Meadows Charade my chocolate looking pinto mare. After I got the initial results last week it was suggested I should have tested Charade for the creme gene. Got results today and yep Charade has 1 copy of the creme gene as does her filly.

Hairicane Charade/Champ Filly Miniature Horse Ee aa nCr

Hidden Meadows Charade Miniature Horse - Ee aa nCr

nCr Dilute. Horse tested Heterozygous for Cream Dilution (One copy of the Cream allele). Chestnut is diluted to palomino; bay is diluted to buckskin and black is diluted to smoky black. These colors can be further modified by the actions of other genes.

So I think now Charade is chocolate due to being a smokey blk and not due to silver gene.

Except that, of course, since there is no test for Silver, she could be that as well
