A friend of mine has a flaxen chestnut gelding, and the hair on his legs fades steadily down their length, from red-chestnut above his knees to sort of a beige-y color at the coronets. Not a clear-cut sock at all, just very pale chestnut. His hooves are dark horn. Maybe part of your gelding's brindle coloration is similar? I *think* all that my friend's horse is color wise is flaxen chestnut, no panagere or anything.
I do think that the white horn hind foot on your (very handsome) little guy does have a sock, though.
A stubborn horse walks behind you, an impatient one in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you ~ Unknown
