Where to find information on colors and genetics

Ever since I came across information on Chimeras I am really interested in learning about colors and genetics. I do not know a whole lot about colors and what people breed to in order to get a certain colored foal. I want to broaden my mind so if anyone could give me some names of books or websites that have really good information on color and genetics that would be awesome! Thanks.

This forum is really good as well. I know Chillaa and NdAppy seem to be really knowledgeable about them, certainly more knowledgeable than i am lol
