    Jen, I was going to say that, but allbreed has the OP's mare as bay, but both of her parents as a chestnut (which is true for the sire, I looked him up) and a red roan, which I couldn't verify. But if it's true, the mare has to be chestnut or red roan.

    LOL, I didn't notice that! I guess those guesstimations go right out the window then.

    OP, breeding to that stud, you'd end up with sorrel foal that may or may not go gray.
    Just kidding, I have no idea, but I felt the need to make a simple statement even if it's wrong.

    Like my other post: your for-sure list includes 1) will carry at least one copy of red, 2) may or may not inherit frame and 3) may or may not inherit gray.

    Because that's not rather vague.

    And if you want to make it a bit more messy, that stud probably isn't just frame, as frame, splash, and sabino tend to work in pairs or threes, so there is also the possibility that the stud has splash and sabino and the foal could inherit that. I don't know his name though, so I can't google for a picture to check.

    Does your mare's AQHA papers say what color she was born? Or is she registered as gray?
    Did I not say that I gave a guesstimate?

    You didn't say that. You said you assumed she was chestnut based on her reddish fleabites, which isn't something I'd go by. Shrug. Just trying to be as accurate as possible in my answers.

    I think if I do decide to breed her, I will not worry so much about coloring and more about the performance. I haven't decided for sure if I even want to do it, but she is a speed demon even at the age of 17. She can outrun two OTTBs in the pasture when she wants to.
