    Hi I want to use the colour calculator but on looking at it I have a grey mare and reall have no idea what she comes under in there, please help?

    This photo is from a while back and she is wet, but it's the best colour shot I have of her

    I'm pretty certain my foal would be bay as the stallion has thrown all bays with white faces, I'm just interested to see what it gives me.
    Thanks

    What colour are her parents?
    You have 50/50 chance of the foal going grey if the mare is heterozygous for grey ,if she's homozygous all of her foals will grey regardless of what colour the stallion is and throws.
    To throw grey you must have 1 grey parent.

    Her dam Liasion Trois was grey and her sire Royal Abjar was chestnut.

    How do I know which one she is?

    Ok having a chestnut parent she can't be homozygous for grey so you have 50/50 chance of her foals being grey.
