Cremello is very hard, sometimes impossible to see on a cremello. I know of more than one cremello that wasn't thought to have the grey gene until they sired grey foals.
Did the sire have one or two grey parents?

Heather~How old is he? Are you sure he has not started to grey out? If he is not grey he can't possibly throw grey. But some take some time to turn grey. I had a bay gelding that did not begin to grey out till after his 3rd birthday. At 5 he is still in the greying process.

I can say I am %99 positive that no he cant sire grey foals but will sire foals with 1 cream gene unless bred to another double cream gene which will create yet another double cream gene foal.

If the cremello is in fact a CREMELLO and not a cremello turned grey (which is very hard to tell with DD) then no you run no risk at all of him producing grey foals. You wont even have to worry about him passing on grey genes. If a horse has a grey gene, the horse will be grey, its a dominant gene just like cream, so if its there you will see it.

With a DD I think it would be well worth the $25.00 to have him tested for grey. You would know for sure then.
