When you breed dogs, cats, horses,... it is possible to obtain either a color 
mixture (brown+white=lightbrown) or a spotted/striped (brown with withe dots) 
resulting breed.  This seems not to be possible for humans.  If I'm right, why 
is that.  If I'm wrong, then where did I make a mistake in my reasoning?
