Examples of Color Possibilities from Zeus
These examples are what you can typically expect out of sorrel, bay, or black mares. The color of the mare can change the chances for a specific color or can eliminate the possibility of certain colors also. It is helpful to have your mare tested for Extension (red/black) and Agouti (bay). These tests are available from UC Davis or Animal Genetics, Inc. and are relatively cheap (~$25 per test). 

You can also visit this color calculator to see what Zeus could produce out your mare. There is no calculator out there that has his exact color combination, but you can get a pretty good idea on the Animal Genetics calculator. Use "amber champagne dun" (Ee AA) for Zeus, then add a cream gene to every possible result. For example, if one of the possibilities is a "bay dun," then, really it would be a dunskin. This calculator also does not take Roan into consideration.

It is highly unlikely that Zeus could produce any red-based roan foals out of non-roan mares. Though these colors do exist, the chance is so small that I did not include examples.
