Foal color possibilities

Hi I bred my sorrel QH mare to a bay overo paint. I am just curious of the probabilities of coat color. My mare's parents were both a deep sorrel. The sire's parents were bay and a frame overo. I would just like to know!
Thanks a ton!

Sorrel, Sorrel Overo, Bay, Bay Overo, Black, Black Overo.

You can always do a test here:

Color Calculator

I like to cheat with that a lot because inevitabley I will always forget a color possibility.

It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

It depends on what white pattern the sire is as to what he could throw. Also, your mare, has she been tested for frame?

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I will see if I can take some pictures of them since I don't know the sire's pattern, and also I have never tested my mare for frame.
