Expecting a foal this June.......could be colored.....HELP!

So I have a black bay arabian w' mealy shading who is bred to a black snow cap LPLP Appaloosa. ANY ideas on colors? I was told he's 100% color producer, but I talked to his original breeder and she said no he's not. So, lets GUESS!!!


Post if you'd like more info! Oh, and mare is a possible rabicano as she has a bit of a white coon tail and some belly banding that doesn't show in photos.

Wow, what an amazing difference in color between the sire as a foal and as an adult. That mare is black? It always confuses me when horses are classified as black, when they have red and brown tints...I am always expecting jet black. :)

As for color, I have no idea...I think the blanket butt with any base color would be cool.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think apps can be 100% color producers, can they?

ed. Whoops, nevermind, the internet has educated me once again.

The mare isn't black, she's bay. Albeit a very dark bay but she's not black. Her papers say bay, her sire was grey and her dam was bay. :)
