Possibilities when breeding a palomino to another palomino?

Hi! I'm planning on breeding my palomino mare to a palomino stud. Not for color, becuase I realy like his bloodlines, conformation ect. I've already done some looking and found info that the chances of foal colors
Are 50% palomino, 25% cremello and 25% chestnut. But out of curiosity thought I'd ask on here for any more possible input. My mare is a golden palomino with her legs being darker, almost black but not quite, below her knees and hocks. She also has a dorsal-like stripe down her back but it's just a darker gold not black. And finally she has a small black spot on her cheek, like a birthmark? I don't know her sire & dam's colors. The stud I'm planning on breeding her to is just a classic looking palomino, kind of like Trigger. His sire is a buckskin. If anyone's got anything to say about this I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

What breed are the mare and stallion? I would recommend testing at least one of them for frame (LWO) if either are a breed that can carry it.

Colours could be as follows:

Palomino - 50%
Cremello - 25%
Chestnut - 25%

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.

Then I would definitely test at least one for frame, since it is definitely in the breed. It can hide, and no evidence of it being absent from pedigree should rule it out. If both parents are carriers, there is a 25% chance of a foal that will die.

Ok, thanks so much for the advice! Does anyone know in what price range a test for frame is?

The color of the parents of the sire and dam in this case don't matter at all. If you breed a chestnut to a chestnut you always get a chestnut. You are breeding 2 chestnuts w/ 1 cream gene, so you can only get chestnut.. with the possibility of one or two cream genes on top of that. (1 will give you palomino, 2 cremello).

Unless the mare is actually a palomino dun.

that is possible, but without a picture/test/etc.. I am basing it on her being a palomino as the OP said she was.

The OP said palomino, but also said the legs are darker and she has a dorsal. For that reason knowing what color the parents are could be important (are the colors not listed on the papers?)
