This Punnet square is a cross between my parents. It can predict the probability of an offspring's trait inheritance.

This is my family's pedigree. It is a family tree that traces a certain trait. This traces horses who are white. If a horse is white, their shape will be filled in. Circles are female, males are sqaures.
Thanks for taking the time to meet my family and learn about genetics!
