breeding paints

Hi , I know about OLWS but I am wondering if there has been any problems breeding a stallion with blue eyes to a mare with blue eyes ?? I know thee is no way to tell about OLWS without testing ..but I was just wondering about the blue eye thing ..thanks .

You should be fine if either the mare or the stud is a Tobiano.

I bred my Overo mare (with one blue eye) to a Tobiano stud that had 2 blue eyes and had a beautiful Tobiano stud colt with no problems.

Years ago I made the mistake of Overo to Overo and had a Lethal White foal after a well respected paint breeder told me it was ok as long as both parents didn't have alot of white on them. Boy was she wrong! Never breed Overo to Overo unless you're prepared for the potential of loss of a foal that you've waited 11 months for.

if the stud is Tovero and the mare is Overo , with all blue eyes, would there still be a bigger chance of OLWS because of the Tovero?

It is my understanding that a Tovero can pass on either a Tobiano gene, Overo, both, or neither gene. The parents having or not having blue eyes really doesn't tell you exactly what you're going to get.

Since a Tovero can throw an Overo gene, my guess would be that you do have a chance of getting a Lethal white if you cross Tovero and Overo. The odds aren't as bad as Overo/Overo (about 25% chance of Lethal White), but from my understanding, yes, it could happen.

There's a good website to look at here.
