Billie Holliday is a strawberry roan daughter of Legato Grigio (blue roan).

We should not be surprised that like Modigliani's older full brother Houdini that Modiglianii, he is a bay roan.

*( i.e. Since we know that Arturo doesn't carry a black allele from extensive breeding outcomes, all that he can contribute is one of his 2 AbAb brown alleles. The resulting cria can therefore only carry one black controlling allele which could come from the dam. In this way he would be a carrier of a black (or silver) base coat to produce the heterozygous Ee bay base color).

Through pedigree analysis of the A (brown/fawn) and E (black) color evaluation through 5 generations, we believe thatthere is a 50% chance that Modigliani carries black.
In this particular case, Billie Holliday's much lighter (more diluted) coat color has been rendered as a fully pigment rich bay. We suspect that he doesn't carry any dilution gene's and would be an excellent candidate to breed to lighter colored roans.

Bored by the genetics? Well then check out his fleece. He is carrying a ton of fiber with brightness, well organized staple, very nice length and spreads it uniformly over an expansive blanket. He has wonderful density.

He is more than worthy to stand on stud row to breed back into the roans in our program. Our design has been to find a roan successor to Arturo and Touchstone who are both brown. Modigliani will carry on the Arturo line and Sherlock Holmes carry Touchstone's.
