Black horses can carry chestnut. You can test your mare for this through UC Davis or some other places, it's a simple hair pull and send in.
Given that the potential sire is a Friesian, it is unlikely you would get anything but a black foal. While it is a very real possibility your mare carries chestnut, it is very rare for a Friesian to carry it, and the lines that do are few and far between. Of course, that is assuming that your mare is indeed a black, and not a dark brown or a smoky black.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
