As mentioned on Rocket's page, because he posesses the creme gene and is also homozygous
for the black gene, Rocket can sire buckskin, black, smoky black, perlino, smoky cream and bay foals. He
can not sire any red-based foals - sorrels, chestnuts, red duns, cremellos or palominos, regardless of the color of the
mare. But, if the mare posesses any color modifiers that Rocket doesn't have (dun, roan, gray, Paint
or pinto) then the foal may also inherit those characteristics.
Rocket has sired a total of 72 foals - 39 fillies and 33 colts.
Out of those 72, there are 20 buckskins, 8 duns, 6 dunskins, 23 bays, 2 perlino, 3
brown, 5 black, 2 blue roan and 3 grey (out of a grey mares). Included in those are 10
Paint/Pinto babies ~ 4 of which were solid, 4 tobiano and 2 overo. (See colors of all mares on
the'Color Genetics & Links' page)
