Foal
Greying is a dominate gene and only needs to be thrown by 1 parent to be seen in the offspring. As such you already know the mare has the gene and has also thrown non grey foals so yes bubba13 is correct in the %50 of a grey. Oh how I love color.

I wasn't joking about the paint part. I was talking about MY grey mare who was bred to my black/white paint stallion. And yes, she did have a tri-color (or bay if you will) paint colt. It does not look like he will grey out, but only time will tell for sure.

Foal
Hi,
Depending on your mare's base colour (colour she was before greying out) She will have if bred with a palomino stud
Bay, Chesnut, Black, Buckskin and palomino whichever colour the foal turns out it will have a chance of Turning grey sometimes you can tell when the foal is born it may have grey hairs around it's eyes or mouth, sometimes you can't tell until the foal sheds it's coat.
Grey is a very dominant colour, and she CANNOT have a double dilute foal( cremello or perlino with blue eyes) as ahe is grey and not a dilute herself. Just to clarify as someone had posted she could have a double dilute.

hopefully this isnt taken the wrong way as I am only asking out of confusion and desire to clarify but, one of the stallions I am looking at to cover my mare is a liver chestnut. I was sent photos of the foals he has thrown and he has throw 2 paints in the past. One to a bay mare and one to a chestnut mare. How would this work if you need a paint to get a paint??

Once again not challenging, just want to clear it all up for my head :)

You have to have the Paint gene to get a Paint. Could be the stallion is minimally expressed sabino. You might not see it--maybe he only has one or two tiny spots on his underbelly, or a wide blaze, or high or irregular socks. Do you have a picture of him?

I agree with bubba. Possibly the stallion is a minimally expressed paint. Or the mares could be minimally expressed and you just didn't notice.

ok, here is a pic of him. Im guessing by what you have said, its the wide blaze and the irregular socks that give it away lol

Also got my stallions mixed up lol I said liver chestnut in original post but I was thinking of another fella that I have been looking at. The one who throws paints is dark brown, white mane, white tail, socks and a blaze.

So are any white markings on a horse classed as paint? Its odd. I have been dealing with horses my whole life and never learnt much about genetics.

No, most white markings have nothing to do with the Paint gene. But when you see high, irregular socks (stockings), small irregular spots, wide blazes or bald/apron faces, blue or bi-colored eyes, or roaning that's not really roaning, you have reason to suspect the sabino gene. The stud looks like a sabino to me.

Here are some examples of sabinos of varying degrees of expression.
