Genetic makeup on my mare

Hey guys! Im trying to do the color coat calculator and don't know the genetic makeup of my mare! I know y'all color specialists will be able to help me out

She is a buckskin, of course. Her dam is a sorrel, her sire is a buckskin. She foaled a palomino foal out of a sorrel stallion.

Idk the sire's makeup either. He is a palomino, his sire was a palomino and his dam a sorrel. Would love for yŠll to tell me what to put in the color calc!

She being a buckskin, would be a bay with 1 cream gene-- the Stud being a palomino, being a chestnut/sorrel with 1 cream gene.

I'm no pro, though..

Your mare is heterozygous black (Ee), heterozygous cream (CRcr), and at least heterozygous agouti (A_). The sire is homozygous red (ee), heterozygous cream (CRcr), with an unknown agouti status.

So your mare has only 1 black gene (because her previous foal didn't get it) and probably has 2 Agouti genes (but could be just one).
The sire carries only 1 cream gene, he could be hiding agouti genes, but has no black
So I deduce your foal will be in order of likelyhood: palomino, buckskin, cremello, perlino, chestnut, bay

I'm liking my chances at having an extremely nice baby with color to boot!
