color possibilities

A palomino bred to a sorrel (sorrel has a sire and grand sire that is black) can this produce a bay?

No. A bay horse is black based and both palomino and sorrel are red based. Your possibilities are sorrel and palomino.

Thats what I thought but I have a bay out of the sorrel and palomino which leaves me confused

Do you have pictures of all three? A bay out of those two is genetically impossible.

I have pic of dam and foal but not sire yet. He was the only one with her and all we can figure is the black sire and granhdsire on her side produced the bay

Color doesn't skip generations. One of the horses is mis labeled as the wrong color, there is NO WAY that a palomino and a sorrel produced a bay. Could you post pics of the mare and foal?

Foal looks to actually be a very dark chestnut. If he IS bay, then the palomino is NOT the sire. As I said, it is genetically IMPOSSIBLE for a palomino and chestnut to make a bay.

As a side note, is mamma a rescue? She looks quite thin.

Palomino is sire we are 100% sure and the foal has black mane and tail and ears and two black legs. We didnt think she took. She was fat and sassy but we had a bad case of pin worms just a month ago that dropped her weight drastically in a matter of days. She has been under vet care and was gaining nicely but all in her belly (turns out it was the little man) we confirmed pregnancy tuesday and here he is today. Vet says she should pick up weight much easier now that all nutients are not going to baby

Once again, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a sorrel/chestnut and a palomino to have a bay. Some chestnuts have very dark manes/tails that can appear black. He looks dark chestnut, to me. Good that she's on vet care, I'd hate to see such a pretty mare go down hill :)
