Pedigree Studies and color genetics

Hi, I recently inherited a four-year old Appendix Qtr. Horse. The mare was a blood bay thoroughbred I bought off the track and the sire is the cremello, "Helluva Yella Fella" a halter horse form the Helluva reining lines. I am thrilled with my gelding, though he is more thoroughbred traits and size than AQHA. He is a very fair Palomino. I haven't been able to find any photos online of the Helluva line, and I'm wondering if there is a preferred site for color/genetics information. Thanks so much.

These are the two sights I like to use:

For genetics:
Color, Patterns, Genetics

For color pattern (only best guess though unless you have parents genetic code)
Color Calculator

After a quick search, I could not find the sire online... maybe someone else will have better luck.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse."

You're 100% on the name of the sire? Closest thing I could come across is this: Arabian Horses of Caliente Creek Ranch

Not sure if that would be much help lol

Wow, thank you. No, I wasn't sure of the spelling! I had leased my mare for a breeding, and she was bred to Hellava Fella. I now have Hellava Storm due to the family's personal situation. He is beautiful - and an exceptional horse. I am in the process of recreating the paper trail! Thank you SO much! I had a photo and the sire's name only.

This is the only thing I could find. It's about 3/4 down the page. This guy could be related, but was only born in 2009, so is the same age as your horse!
Helluva Chex is in Allbreed Pedigree.
