Mad Bunny Magic

A group of bunnies ran away from their magician-masters and formed their own union. Not surprisingly, their favorite trick was pulling little tiny men out of hats.

2 red men, 3 blue men, 5 green men, and 2 gold men were placed inside a top hat.

Mary Bunny pulled two men - a red one and a gold one.

Jamie Rabbit pulled out 3 men, at least two of which were green.

Stevie Hare drew out 6 men. He had at least one of each color.

What combinations of colors could Stevie have drawn, and what color man will be left in the hat in each case?
