1) Silver is very rare in stock breeds, so I wouldn't count on it.
2) I'm not sure what you mean by "take away from the foal." Chestnut is homozygous red, which means the mare will absolutely pass it on to her foal. Also, because she is red, she could carry the agouti gene unbeknownst to us.
But, as stated in those to posts: Bay, black, chestnut, red dun, bay dun, grullo.
