What colours will these foals be?

Hey guys!

So I think this is supposed to go here...it could go in the breeding forum I guess.
But the barn owner just bred two horses.

The stallion is a chestnut Quarter Horse named Phoenix. He stands 15.3hh I think and he's...3 years old? I'm pretty sure he's three. He's the horse in the attached photo.

Phoenix was bred to a mare named Satyra. She's a black Quarter Horse mare. She's about 14.3hh and she's 10 years old.



Phoenix was also bred to a horse named Reba-Dodge. She's a liver chestnut Quarter Horse mare. She's 14.2hh and she's 16 years old.




So I was just wondering what colours you think the foals will turn out to be? I'm SO curious, I've never been around a foaling before so this is just kind of a fun thread out of my curiosity :)

Thanks!

Red + Red = red.

Reba-Dodge x Pheonix will be chestnut, unless one of them is hiding something- which I highly doubt.

Satyra x Pheonix, I *think* will either be black or chestnut, I'm leaning more towards black. Unless she's a Smoky black or something crazy, I don't think you can expect more than a chestnut/bay/black foal of either of them.

It doesn't look like any of the horses pictured have any white pattern genes or pinto genes.

EDIT: on a side note, are you sure Pheonix isn't carrying dun? It's hard to tell from the picture.

Chestnut + Chestnut is always Chestnut.

Chestnut + Black, possible colors are chestnut, bay or black.

Phoenix may be dun. I haven't looked too closely, his mom was a dun so...I'm not sure I'll check next time I see him.

Yep, that's Phoenix. He was only 2 years old in that picture though, he's grown and filled out since.

He doesn't look like it, but it's highly possible, if his sire was dun, and assuming he's a QH, it's not uncommon in the breed.

Foal
The horse in the third photo looks more like a Red Dun.

I realized I never updated on this thread. Satyra-Rose ended up with twins and one was aborded and the other died in her stomach of lack of nutrition. Reba's foal is still going strong and is due in May!! I get to watch the birth and stay over night in the barn that day! So excited! Phoenix, unfortunately, had a previous accident and had to be put down because the pain came back :'( So anyway that's what's going on now.

That's unfortunate. :(

I don't see dun on Phoenix though. With his shade, if he were done, I would expect his body to be quite a bit lighter. Good luck with the little red foal that is on the way.
