Chestnut Overo Paint X Sorrel Quarter Horse?

I have found a horse coat color generator and it wasnt specific enough for what I am looking for since it combines sorrel and chestnut. I want to breed my sorrel quarter horse to a chestnut overo paint stud.. Can anyone tell me the possible outcomes of this and the chances of getting each, along with the possible overo factor?
This is the calculator I have been using: Color Calculator
I love it and it works in most cases but its not specific enough for this one

Sorrel and chestnut are technically the same color, you will definitely get a red baby! No way to know what shade, 50% chance it will get the overo.

I think I'm confused (go figure). Chestnut/sorrel are the same color. What isn't specific enough?

Chestnut and sorrel are the same thing. Chestnut x chestnut = chestnut. If one parent carries overo (I'm assuming frame) you have a 50% chance of frame/overo.

You need to have your mare tested for Lethal White before you breed her. It IS in QHs, and if the stallion is a frame overo, then breeding to him without knowing your mare's frame status is asking for trouble. If she has frame, and he has frame, then there is a 25% chance of a lethal white foal which will die within 72 hours of birth.

Agreed with Chiilaa. And depending on the horses breeding there are possible other genetic diseases to consider. Remember frame doesn't always show on the coat it can be in solid horses even. Also Chesnut/Sorrel or two terms for the same color. You will have another red baby.
