Hi,
I am in process of looking to purchase a beautiful bay appy stud colt, blanket with spots....his dam is a chestnut mare with nice white spots over her rump....his sire I thought was a chestnut marbled stallion....but I don't think a bay can happen out of 2 chestnuts, can it?
Any ideas or thoughts?
Thanks!
K}}

technically, no. It is appy, though, and you're into something with no possibility of predictions there. LOL
Any coat color calculator you put chestnut+chestnut into says offspring will be 100% chestnut. Take into consideration that many appys are born one color and then change, though, and he might not be a bay for long...his true color may be chestnut as well. I breed miniature horses (pure appaloosa) and know every color in their pedigree, and sometimes, even when not breeding for it, you get a strange color out of something you'd never expect it from....with appys it's 'anything goes' i believe!
