    You forgot too chestnut + chestnut = chestnut They always breed true.

    Nothing ever really "breeds true." Chestnut + chestnut can give you pearl if both horses carry it.

    I'm speaking from a simplicity standpoint...some genes can hide yes but if they are nothing but chestnut (I'm sure we could debate this for days ):

    Chestnut + chestnut = chestnut
