The chances of getting a red out of the two is possible however unlucky. I had a palomino mare I bred to black point dun stallion an got a bay! In fact ad long as I owned her she never threw me color! I hope you have more luck!

That filly is chestnut with counter shading. It is just as likely as any other color as her sire is red based and her dam is most likely Ee.

Once you got a bay then you can not get anything more from her. She is EeA? with no dun and no cream. So if you want color you would have to get it from the sire. Same here. If you want anything more then a sorrel/chestnut you are going to have to get it from the sire.

She is a chestnut with counter shading. Her tone is not right for a dun and she does not show real dun factor.

Without seeing pictures of her sire and dam, there is no way to know for certain that either is not dun. Palomino is very good at hiding dun, and buckskin and dun seem to be interchangeable words in some areas.

This filly has a very distinct dorsal stripe. While this could be caused by countershading, she is of a breed that has dun, from parents that could be hiding dun. Other dun factor could be there - she does have darker legs and some darkness over her shoulders, but these pictures are not great for seeing this. As for her darker colour, don't let this dissuade you. Two factors can influence this - this is her foal shed, which is usually the darkest shed a horse will go through, and there is a lot of variation in the expression of chestnut, so we should expect that variation to be shown somewhat in the expression of chestnut based dun. This foal, for instance, is a chestnut dun:

OP - You describe her in foal coat as if you have seen it. Do you have foal pictures available? These, and pics of her sire and dam, could help us further.

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.
