Supernatural Fella

Cremello Offspring Color Chart


A SORREL horse that received one copy of the crème gene from both of its parents, and has blue eyes, cream to nearly white hair coat, and a white mane and tail.

Most people and color calculators will tell you that if you breed a cremello to a sorrel or chestnut mare that there is a 100% chance of getting a palomino. This is for the most part correct, but there are actually 2 different genotypes for sorrels and 4 different genotypes for chestnut horses. This is also true for many of the other "standard" colors used by the horse industry. As a result, there are many different colors you can get by breeding a cremello to a sorrel/chestnut mare. Some of these colors are called duns (Claybank Dun, Lilac Dun, Yellow Dun & etc), but these genotypes do not include the dun gene which makes it somewhat confusing. What we have done below is listed some of the basic colors by actual color/genotype name and the possible resulting colors from crossing them with a Cremello. We have also adjusted the chart slightly due to "Supernatural Fella" being Homozygous for the Agouti Gene!
