Vets know little to nothing of color genetics. A palomino would be ee aa Crcr, and a chestnut would be ee aa, no cream. They can carry agouti(the bay gene), however it doesn't affect the red pigment.. A bay horse would HAVE to be Ee Aa no cream at the very least. Could also be EE Aa, EE AA, or Ee AA.
Edit- Your mare, being chestnut, is one of the following: ee aa, ee Aa, or ee AA. The agouti(A), does not show up.
A palomino would be the same combos, except with Crcr as well. So as you see, there is NO possibility of bay.Posted via Mobile Device
