    OP has stated that color isnt the only thing they are looking for. But it is up there on the priority list. There are plenty of color producers that have nice conformation.

    You say that like they are mutually exclusive to one another. You CAN have COLOR and QUALITY, ya know ..

    I dislike certain colors and if I'm going to breed a mare, spend close to a year waiting on a foal, etc., I'm likely to choose a stallion that won't give me a chestnut... and definitely not a grey.

    Doesn't mean I'm looking at "crappy horses" .. only that color is a big consideration when looking at stallions that are up for consideration.

    Make sense?

    I think with the genetic testing these days, it isn't unreasonable to expect to get a colored foal.
    I just don't have the patience to breed and wait four years to ride.
    The horse market is such, I can buy horses that were before out of my price range, and get whatever I want.

    I really do hope you look for good conformation and temperment first.

    However with that said - as the original question of color - if you find a horse that is homozygous black - the foal will be black based despite the chestnut mare. Now if the mare carries for bay you may end up with bay or black.

    If you breed to a perlino or cremello or smokey cream (black with 2 creams) the resulting foal will either be palomino, buckskin or smokey black. So there are a couple options for you in your search.
