    what do you think a foal out of a sorrel pinto mare and by a smoky black stud would look like?

    Gads, that could be just about anything - no double dilutes, of course, but without more details, there's not a lot you can totally rule out.

    I did enter what I know into a genetics site, but genetic stuff is so horribly confusing for me :D

    Well, I guess there are some things you can rule out - gray, dun, roan, appaloosa. But she could be carrying agouti, which gives you possibilities like bay and buckskin, and he could be carrying red, which means sorrel and palomino, plus however many pinto genes are at play here.:idunno

    And some pinto crosses throw only a very small white spot some where on the solid colored body

    Or, they can go completely in the opposite direction, and give you something like a maximum expression sabino:

    I'd be happy with whatever they produce, just wanted to see possibilities. I'll post pics of them in a minute

    Top photo is the smoky black stud. He has a reddish tint to his coat and mane/tail
    Bottom photo is the mare and a colt she had. The sire of the colt was a solid chestnut, very red

    Looking at the mare and her last colt, I would say that your mare most likely has Tobiano and Sabino genes. Since the stallion appears to not have any spotting/pinto genes at all, there is always the possibility of a solid colored foal. Offhand, though, I'd say the chances are good for getting a flashy black pinto out of that cross.

    Any chance for palomino, buckskin, or any others like that with these two?
