Re: Brindle Miniature

There are PROVEN genetic brindles though. There is a long list of brindles that have produced brindles on the Batty Atty website.

Re: Brindle Miniature

Based upon what The University of California Davis told me, they have still not perfected the brindle gene in horses. That many can not reproduce themselves, though there are some that do.

Re: Brindle Miniature

I think it's virtually impossible to say that "there are some that don't reproduce themselves" unless those horses are chimera brindles. Otherwise there will likely never be enough foals by/out of a brindle to know that it hasn't reproduced itself. Even a cream sire can go a loooooong time before ever throwing a cream foal. It's just luck of the draw (thought it usually does = out to 50% over years of production). Pretty much every brindle I am aware of that is not a chimera has produced at least one brindle (except for those too young to produce).

Have you been to this site yet?

Re: Brindle Miniature

I have been to that web site and have read it. I have also sent my pictures to the brindle registry for registration and have heard back and can register her.

I have been talking with Cecilia Penedo, who they talk about on that web page, who is specializing in chimera and non chimera brindling. She feels my filly is a chimera, but until tests are done, one does not know for sure.

She is the one who told me that many of the brindle horses out there today can not reproduce themselves and yet, not all are chimeras. [b]Obviously some can based upon the number of brindles out there./b]. Chimeras can not reproduce themselves.

This patteren is rare, so rare that to see one causes a stir. If they were able to reproduce themselves that well, you would see a whole lot more of them around the world. To get a perlino or cremelo you have a 25% chance when breeding a dilute to a dilute. With most brindles, I would expect that percentage to be way way lower with one brindle parent.

Based upon what I have read, there are a handlfull of stallions and mares that seem to be able to produce the brindle pattern and perhaps someday UCD and Dr. Penedo will be able to come up with the gene that causes it.

It is pretty and very unusual.

I expect it will be a few weeks before we know what my filly is.

Re: Brindle Miniature

With any dilute you have a 25% chance of it reproducing, but, as said, it does not always work that way, it depends entirely on how many foals are bred.
Also of course, with mares, they can only have one foal a year, and not all stallions are breeding material...I would like to think that someone getting a Brindle that is not otherwise breeding material would not breed it.......

Re: Brindle Miniature

Clicking the link posted I think by ACC, then clicking links on there, I came across this page, and think it's super cool that brindling shows on the white part of pintos!!!!

Re: Brindle Miniature

WOW!!! Love that site!!!

I wonder if Lace has a hidden, recessive brindle gene. :rofl
