Depending on the individual genetics of both stud and mare (assuming they are heterozygous for pretty much everything), there is a chance for a chestnut, palomino, black, bay, brown, buckskin, or smoky black from that combination. For the chances of a pinto foal, it would depend on the stud's zygosity. If he was homozygous, then the foal would carry the pinto gene, if stud is heterozygous, then there is a 50% chance of a foal with the pinto gene.
However, carrying the pinto gene does not guarantee flashy markings.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
