    well think of it this way, if you mix a deep red paint with white what happens?

    it turns lighter red and if you add to much white it will turn pink

    ok so just apply that to the question. the mother is red and the father is white. the foal still comes out red so obviously the mother has given the foal the Dominant gene

    the baby received the dominant red gene from it's mother (Rr or RR) but has a white gene from the father. the father's gene's are recessive (ww) see if that helps
