    What color was her sire?

    As to not being grey... That is easy. I means that the parent that had the grey only had on grey gene to pass on and did not do so. If both of your mare's sire and dam were grey, it means that both her sire and dam had one grey gene each and neither of them passed it on.

    Do you have pictures of your mare and her pedigree? I would like to see them if possible.

    Yes, I have pictures of her and I can give you an allbreedpedigree.com address for the link. Her sire was a sorrel. The sire's sire is a red dun, his dam was a bay. Her dam was a Grey: red dun sire, gray dam. I'll get some pictures up here real soon.

    Here's the link to her pedigree. I know a few don't have the color on them, but I can give you a detail on those who are of color to a degree.:)

    Grey isn't a color, it's a modifier. Your horse's grey parent is another color under there, and grey takes the color away over time.

    It is true about that. He sire majority colts.[/QUOTE]

    Well we breed our mare to a stallion that had only produced only one filly in about 24 foals.......guess what we got ........a filly!!! The stallion also produced nothing but dark bays.......and yes we did get a dark bay.

    If you bred May to Bentley, visit this website:
    Color Calculator

    Its helpful in determining the possibilities of colors. There is info you will not know on your sire and dam unless you have had them genetically color tested. But other than that, it's fun to play with.

    According to the calculator, with only limited info, here are the results:
    58% Bay
    33% Chestnut/Sorrel
    9% Black
