Possible crosses on Silver Black?

I am interested in breeding my pony, and while conformation and tempermant are important I love interesting colors and patterns. I was wondering about the different coats that she could possibly throw to a foal. She's heterozygous silver, and homozygous black I believe. Love to hear feedback, thank you in advance

If she is homozygous black

If she is homozygous black then all the foals will be bay or black based.  This is good if you hope for silver because silver doesn't express on red bases.  

Since she is black, bay is would have to be inherited from the sire.  Any foal would have a 50% chance of inheriting silver from her.  


Hope that helps a bit.
