No Chestnut Hanovarian Foals, Only Bay and Black, Black, BLACK!!!

I am so excited BECAUSE I am not particularly fond of Chestnut (solid red) colored horses. I have bred my beautiful Blood Bay and True Black Hanoverian mares to the outstanding FABULEUX. He is quite amazing which is enough in itself. BUT this week I see that he has been DNA tested for coat color and he cannot produce a Chestnut foal. YEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! So now my odds of getting 1 Bay and 1 Black Fabuleux foal have greatly increased. Fabuleux must be EEAa because he is a dark bay. The "A" makes him a bay. But he has produced black so there is the "a" (if in fact the foal owners are reporting a "true non-fading" black like Finesse.) Now Finesse is the truest black ever but she had a chestnut filly so she is Eeaa. I believe Allianz is EEAA because she has had 5 foals and they have all been bay coloring. She could be hiding a chestnut or solid black recessive in there. We will see next year! Aren't you excited about this?
