    The possiblities are bay, chestnut, and liver chestnut. Since the only color the stallion can give is chestnut, it depends on if the mare gave the black, bay or chestnut gene. Just remember that foals are usually born lighter in color. I've seen lots of people be like "OH!!! My mare just had a palomino!! YAY!!" When its just a chestnut.

    Is it silver bay?

    If you bred a chestnut and a bay (if they truly are of those colors) and if you do not know their homoz/hetero specifics (and figuring the chestnut doesn't carry the silver gene) this is the color possibilities of the resulting foal:

    58.34% - Bay
    33.33% - Chestnut
    8.33% - Black

    However, if the chestnut does carry the silver gene (been tested for it and is comfirmed having it), you can expect to get:

    33.33% - Chestnut
    29.17% - Silver Bay
    29.17% - Bay
    4.17% - Silver Dapple
    4.17% - Black

    See for more info on color possibilities. They have a really neat color calculator that will tell you exactly what you can expect.

    Keep in mind there are a lot of horses out there registered as a color that the realy aren't too.

    P.S. I'm oing Bay or Silver Bay. :)
