Not Sharon here, but if pink is recessive to other colors, then it shouldn't
'throw-back'.  Black Angus cattle carry red genes, so two black parents
can provide a red Angus calf, but two red Angus specimans will never
'throw-back' and give a black calf since the red is recessive.  But there
are partially recessive traits and iris genetics are considerably more
complicated than cattle genetics as far as I can tell.  Infinitely.
