    Hypothetically - black to chestnut, without going into it too much, can give you Bay, Brown, Black and Chestnut. You won't get any dilutes (palomino, buckskin, smokey black, perlino or cremello) and you won't get Grey.

    Black to buckskin - again, all four base colours. You can then get single dilutes - palomino, buckskin and smokey black. You still won't get grey. You also won't get any double dilutes - cremello or perlino.

    That makes alot of sense now. Thank you!
