He kind of looks like a rose gray- a chestnut going gray.

To be gray, at least one parent must be gray. My colt is turning gray, and his mom is a gray. But his dad was a chestnut and baby is a chestnut going gray.

But your guy is so cool, it would be a shame to loose the color. But he would be gorgeous either way.

I don't know much about brindles... is the color of his skin patterned like the hair? I'll do some research on brindle... he could grey out if it's not a "true" brindle.

I would think the breeder would want it's babies registered, and I don't see why they WOULDN'T sign your papers. Surely they'd remember their brindle baby ;)

The only thing about the gray gene is I think it trumps other colors. So a horse could be born any color and then gray out if it inherits the gene.

But that's a good question. Is he brindle and will stay that way, or is the brindling an expression of the gray gene? Obviously most grays never go through a brindle stage, but it could be a strange expression of graying out. I do know however, there are/were solid color brindles with white striping that stay that way.

And some brindles are chimeric, they are actually the product of a reabsorbed twin and so the horse carries two sets of DNA (if I remember my research correctly). That isn't always the case, but it is the case with some brindles.

The actual skin appears to have the same colors, I talked to the breeder and they did remember him, they said since brindles can't be shown they didn't register him, I haven't asked them yet whether or not they would care if I did...This is his dam...no pics,though :(

Bint Bint Safina: 2001 gm

He is also registered with the Brindle Association...don't know if that means much,though...

Do you know if there are any tests or anything for brindle/chimeric? I don't know a lot about them either. I have done a lot of research,but there just isn't a lot of info...if there was a test I would sure like to get it for him! I am really curious.

Too bad it doesn't list her color. But if you talk to the breeder again, you can ask. Maybe just ask them if HE is a gray. Because if he is, then he would have been born a solid color.

....one more question and it probably is even sillier than the first :)

What does the GM mean by his dam's name?
