Probability

"A mare homozygous at the bay loci, EEAA, is crossed to a stallion who is heterozygous at the bay loci, EeAa. What is the probability that their offspring will be bay?"

What I have been looking at all week. It's tiring on top of taking on a new barn and horses to take care of. I've seen Indigo twice this week. I am sure she misses the cookies.

Anyone know how to do probability? Want to help me? It's confusing as all hell.

In the mean time here is a cute effin pic of a friends old horse lazing in the sun last summerr. I want the snow to melt.

I love genetics. This was right up my alley. I spent so much time on an answer, I ended up doing a post on my blog explaining myself.

lol thanks. Glad you liked it.

100%. Since it the mare is homozygous, it will always pass on the gene. Since both the black extension and the agouti modifier are dominant, 100%.
