what different colours make what

Say if you was to breed a bay mare with a grey stallion, what colour foal will that produce? Or a palimino and a black ? Or so on.. Just curious :)
Would love some stories and pictures too. :)

It would depend on the color the stallion was before he grayed out and whether or not the stallion carries two gray genes or just one.

If the stallion carries two gray genes (homozygous), the foals will always be gray.

If he has one gray gene (heterozygous), he has a 50% chance of passing the gray gene on, and 50% not. If the foal does not inherit the grey gene, it would depend on what color the stallion was before he grayed out because all gray horses are born a "normal" color, which the gray masks.

Thanks, makes alot of sense when you explain it like that. :) also, a question..
I had a few spot appy he was all white with pink skin and one spot on his rump since he was born and we had him until he was 12. His skin was freckled around his face but fur white. What would you say this horse is? Would you just say he is a few spot appy and not white? I have always been confused about it. Ill attach a picture although its not real good but its the only one I have.. Thanks. :)

I didnt look at the pic, but from the description I would say he sounds like a few spot appaloosa.

The picture wasn't helpful, as it only shows his face, but I would assume from your description that he is a fewspot.

Yeh that's what I thought! :) no such thing as a white horse but id almost say he was the closest thing to one, apart from an albino lol

All three of these horses are white. Not albino, not double cream dilutes, and not grey. White.

They are beautiful! Would they have white offspring aswell? I guess the only thing holding my gelding back from being white was his one spot! And freckled face.
