It will be some variation of a chestnut. Chestnut comes in many different shades, including liver.

In horses liver chestnut is a type of chestnut. So chestnut to chestnut will produce a chestnut foal. The actual shade of chestnut will be controlled by underlying factors that are not well understood.

No. There are 2 totally different sets of genes that make up these two colors. Champagne is a dilution gene and there is now a test for it. (see Related Links for more information) Liver Chestnut is genetically just chestnut (same color as sorrel) but is visually darker. There are many shades of a red base color but they are still all a red base color. There is no test for Liver Chestnut because, at this time, it is not considered a color at all, but a way to describe a darker red horse. If you breed a gold champagne to a liver chestnut, you can get chestnut, gold champagne, liver chestnut or a darker gold champagne. The chances for Liver or the darker gold champagne is probably less than plain chestnut/sorrel or gold champagne. Chocolate Palomino is also not a "color" but is a word to describe a darker palomino. Could be a sooty gene darkening the palominos appearance. There are other colors that people call chocolate too and they are totally unrelated genetically to the palomino. Silver dapple is the best example.

anywhere from liver chestnut (a horse color for dark dark brown) to black. they also may have white-ish legs

Many breeds of horses can be liver chestnut. It depends on their parents, who pass on this trait. Normally, at least one of the parents has to be chestnut (if both parents are chestnut, then the foal will be chestnut ... but not necessarily liver chestnut). Color is never a guarantee in breeding horses, although the foal is chestnut, it might not be LIVER! Arabians, Morgans, Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds, Quarter Horses, Saddlebreds, Tennessee Walkers, Paso Finos, to name a few. This also includes many pony and draft breeds, which can also be chestnut. On the other hand, an Andalusion or a Lippizaner can never be chestnut; they are always born black and turn grey (or white with age). Also a Friesian horse is always black. Many other breeds of horse have their own color patterns and can never be chestnut. In any case, it mostly depends on the parents and the color gene they carry.

With enough genetic information a specific coat color could be quantified, but the trait is qualitative in as much as it can be described but not truly measured. For example. Horse aaEE is black as is horse aaEe however horse aaEe is blue black and horse aaEE is black. While another horse aaEE is blue black and Another aaEe horse is black. Any horse ee is chestnut...but there is liver chestnut, red chestnut, orange chestnut sorrel, et cetera. A quantitative analysis may yield the results of gene frequency in a population or the specific number of individuals in a breed that are a specific color...but the full spectrum of color variation will not be addressed by a quantitative approach.

it can vary but some times it can be a liver chestnut or a bay or a normal chestnut. the colour could be any but i would suggest you go on a proper horse website

That all depends on genetics and what genes the 2 horses have. Cannot give you an exact answer unless the horses are homozygous for the color gene they have. You can breed 2 horses of the same color and make a completely different color.

Assuming you are referring to the horse colors. Liver is a darker form of chestnut and therefore there is no 'cross' between them. The shade of chestnut inherited by a foal is purely genetic.

Paints may be solid colored or broken patern of color that resembles paint splotches, a paint horse is a breed in itself and not just a color fact if it were just a color of a horse u would refer to it as a pinto, with the actual breed name following. Such as a pinto arabian. A paint may be a large varietys of colors mixed with white. U can have a buckskin paint, sorrell paint, black, chestnut grey liver , etc

Flaxen Chestnut, Flaxen Liver Chestnut, Cremello, and Palomino.

Chestnut - 29% Flaxen Chestnut - 15% Cherry Bay - 6% Flaxen Liver Chestnut - 2% Liver Chestnut - 21% Black - 3% Bay - 10% Dark Bay - 8% Light Grey - 1% Dapple Gray - 2% Dun - 3%

Brown is a brown color with lighter "points" (ears, nose, legs) Bay is often confused with brown. bay is brown, varrying from redish to dark brown, and the mane, tail and points are darker than the rest of the body. Chestnut is also confused with brown. chestnut is generally a redish light brown to a golden brown and the mane is the same color or lighter. when its lighter is called flaxen chestnut. There is aso the flaxen liver chestnut which has a bay's body and a creamish mane and tail.

A reddish horse is called chestnut. The horse has no black markings, and the mane and tail are either the same color or lighter than the coat. There are a few different variations of chestnut, too. Liver is very dark red (close to brown), Sorrel (most common) is coppery and bright, and Blond (rarely used) is a very light and pale red or tan coat.

John Wayne rode a liver chestnut colored quarter horse in the movie McClintock. The name of the horse was Alamo and was also used in the movie The Alamo.

It depends on the other genetics that help determine color. If there are only chestnut and black, then the foal will be black. If there is an agouti gene to restrict the black to the horse's points, the foal will be a bay. If there are additional modifiers, the horse may have other attributes such as spots, dun stripes, etc. A chestnut of any kind cannot result from this mating, as this requires 2 chestnut genes, and a homozygous black carries no chestnut genes to pass along. the chestnut color is the most recessive gene, so all other colors will be dominant, but truthfully all colors come from an alteration or absence of a red or black gene. a homozygous black has two copies of the black gene, and will pass on one of them, the other gene will be chestnut, so the result will be bay, (red with black mane and tail) or brown (liver) or a black. A homozygous black is not possible. A good source to read about this matter is "Horse color explained" by Jeanette Gower.

no it doesn't. flaxen liver chestnuts can be about any breed, including the Rocky Mountain Horse

Arabians can be many different colours including dapple grey and flaxen liver chestnut.

Bay: A bay horse is a brown to red in color. Bays have black points, (ears, flank, knees and hocks). Their mane, tail and forelock are black. Their are many types of bay; there is light bay (where the base is a very light color), blood bay (where the base is a very red color) and mahogany bay (where the coat has a purple tinge, usually sooty and more brown), sandy bay (where the base is only brown, no red tinge), golden bay (where the base coat takes on a yellow color), and primitive bay (the black markings are very faint, and the horse usually has obvious pangare characteristics). Chestnut or Sorrel: Chestnut or Sorrel is defined as a horse with no black hairs. Chestnut is a dark red horse. Very dark chestnuts are called Liver chestnuts. Sorrels are more brightly colored, with a lighter coat color. For either, the mane/tail should be the same color as the body. Either color with flaxen mane and tails should have "Flaxen" put in front of the name. Sorrels are often flaxen.

There are two breeds of horses that are always chestnut; the Suffolk Punch and the Haflinger. The Suffolk Horse (as it is also referred to) is an English breed of drought horse developed in the early 16th century. Suffolk Punches generally stand 16.1 to 17.2 hands tall and weigh 1,980 to 2,200 pounds. They are always chestnut in color, and white markings are rare and generally limited to small areas on the face and lower legs. The Haflinger, also known as the Avelignese, is a breed of horse developed in Austria and northern Italy during the late 19th century. Haflinger horses are relatively small, are always chestnut in color, have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth, and are well-muscled yet elegant. They have many uses, including light draft, harness work, and various under-saddle disciplines such as endurance riding, dressage, equestrian vaulting, and therapeutic riding. They are also still used by the Austrian and German armies for work in rough terrain. Haflingers come in shades ranging from a light gold to a rich golden chestnut or liver hue. The mane and tail are white or flaxen. It's height is between 13.2 and 15 hands (54 and 60 inches).

Here is the list of Arabian coats in rarity order, going from rarest to most common: Dun 1% Flaxen Liver Chestnut 1% Mousey Grey 1% Strawberry Roan 2% Roan 4% Black 4% Cherry Bay 5% Dark Bay 6% Flaxen Chestnut 7% Liver Chestnut 9% Bay 10% Chestnut 10% Dapple Grey 11% Fleabitten Grey 12% Light Grey 17%

The liver is reddish brown in color.

Both. Palomino is a name for a coat colouration of the horse, but it is not named as a breed. It referred to as a colour breed, though, but not a true breed like that of the Friesian or Appaloosa because Palominos do not nor cannot breed true or produce offspring with the same coat colour as its parents. Palominos have a yellow or gold coat with a white or light cream mane and tail. Colouration of the body can range from a deep gold to cream. Palominos are never grey, chestnut nor liver-coloured with flaxen manes and tails. They are never to be confused with buckskins (yellow body with dark mane and tail) nor with duns (darker mane and tail with dorsal stripe).The breeds of horses that have the palomino colouration include the following:ArabianQuarter HorseHalflingerAmerican SaddlebredTennessee Walking HorseMorganThoroughbred (though rare)Paint HorseAppaloosaHolsteiner

any colour exept bay, black, grey, fleabitten grey, chestnut, darkbay or liver chestnut.
