Breeding - Colors.

So. We are breeding one of our horses in June. I was wondering what colors the foal could come out with . The sire is a cherry bay, and the dam is a Liver Chestnut. Thanks every one!

Bay, Chestnut, or Black. The likelihood of each colour depends on the genetics of the parents, but I'm assuming you didn't do a bunch of random colour testing, did you?

There's not way to determine what shade of those colours the foal will be though.

Agreed, it depends on the parents gene pool. Chestnut, Black, or Bay I would say. You don't happen to know the parents of the parents do you, then you would have a little bit of a better guess onto it. Though without knowing it will be a surprise.

No, the dams mother was a Draft mix, and her father was a purebred pure black Thoroughbred.
The sire has a purebred belgian for a father, (belgian colors) and his dam is a bay arab.

I will just add, this is not my decision. But I am looking forward to getting the foal out of her.
