Studying genetics

So I would really like to learn a lot more about colors and genetics in horses. What are some good resources for me to look at? Genetics have always been a bit of an interest of mine and I would like to expand my knowledge on the subject.

Alright thanks everyone :) I'm trying to figure out what colors I'd get with a palomino x palomino and a palomino x liver chestnut since the 2 studs I chose for my mare are those colors. No worries, I chose confo over color but I'm curious on what I could get!

Red + red = always red.

Palomino + palomino = chestnut, palomino, or cremello.

All 3 are red based (palomino = chestnut + cream) and since each palomino has a 50% chance of passing on cream, the foal may inherit no cream (chestnut), one copy (one from one parent, nothing from the other, resulting in palomino), or one copy from either parent (chestnut + 2 copies of cream = cremello).

Chestnut + palomino = chestnut or palomino, as explained above.

A lot of reading, really. I found it interesting a couple of years ago and started reading into it. We still do. Unfortunately, I suck at practical things like first aid.
