There are some weird things that happen sometimes! I saw a stallion in a ad for breeding. He is pure thoroughbred but he is painted. His parents were both solid colours. So i guess anything can be possible but extremely rare.

There are colored TB's out there. There are some that carry both APHA and JC papers.

The only way to know for sure would be to have a genetic test down on the dam and sire to know what their genes are. There are so many common alleles that there are many outcomes with different variations. If you are breeding color really shouldn't be your first thought though. It's kinda like the sex it's meant to be a surprise.

If the resulting foal was "painted", then at least one of the parents was also carrying a pattern gene. It is impossible for a gene to skip generations or just pop up randomly. However, many times you will see a case where a pattern gene will show up loudly in a foal even though the owners weren't aware that the parents were carrying it, because it had expressed itself so minimally for several generations.

And to the person who was asking before, the silver gene does not exist in Thoroughbreds. Most likely, both of the parents were Ee & the foal inherited ee, making her a chestnut.

i think it depends on the gene the parents have!

It is absolutely impossible to get a perlino out of two bay horses. You will either get another bay, black or a chestnut/sorrel. The creme gene is never recessive and will ALWAYS show on a coat; unless, it's a smoky black and then the horse will a lot of times, look just like a regular black. But, with two creme genes like the perlino, you have to have both parents with a creme gene to get a chance at a perlino. Hence, the horses would have to be buckskins instead of bays to get the perlino.
