Well, I'm always surprised when I get something like that. I used to be the queen of the solid foals! That's why I use fewspots and snowcaps now...and even that isn't always a guarantee of a loud pattern.

You breed to a leopard you have a 50/50 chance of a leopard foal.........

Unless the leopard is homozygous for LP or PATN1 (or the dam is carrying one or both) it's actually more like 33%.

Based on everything I've read, pretty much. It's only the blanket that is in question. We know they can pass LP with no visible pattern. And we're quite sure they can pass a pattern with no visible LP. Thus it takes two genes... thus 33%.

Re: Appy genetics question...

It has been proven by breeding, yes, absolutely. I've bred leopard to non-leopard many times, and the percentages were much less than 50%. I don't think I even approached 33%! Breeding leopard to leopard has never given me 50% leopard either....but maybe I'm just unlucky.
