    Okay, so being a brindle he could be Chimera (two embryos, two sets of genetics, merge into one foal that has two sets of genes... so if you DNA tested him, he's have two sets of results). Little is known about the brindle gene though. So in a nutshell if both sets of DNA have the grey gene, he will grey out. However, if only one set of DNA has the grey gene, it will continue to grey out while the other will stay its own color. That is, if the Chimera thing is correct.

    It looks to me like he's going to grey out, or at least be reduced to flea bitten grey. I say this because of the way the darker color appears kind of like a rose grey as someone said before. I don't know though, only time will tell!

    oh...they said when he was born he was brindle, not solid, they called him el tigre when he was born I guess...

    So does that mean he isn't grey?

    I don't think he'd grey out. Brindling has been shown in some studies to be linked to chimerism. An interesting article about it appeared a while back in the AQHA mag:

    All I know about chimeric brindles I learned here:

    Brindling can be a result of chimerism but there have also been cases of it being inherited. Not many cases, but they are out there.


    Another question, he looks really similar to a brindle arab that was floating around for sale that I saw. *off to dig up the pictures I saved*

    Hey Indyhorse, we were reading each other's minds, lol!

    It sounds like he might not be a gray if he was born brindle. That is GOOD news for your brindle.....he will hopefully stay that way!

    So have the breeders produced other brindles? I had no idea there was a brindle "line" in Arabians. How cool! If it is genetic, then he probably isn't a chimeric, because chimeric is kind of a fluke of nature, from what I understand.

    I don't care if the Arabian horse association likes it or not, I love exotic, beautiful colors.

    The breeder said " we don't keep the brindle foals" ,but they didn't outright said they had had others....they just said it in the plural so I assumed they must have a had a few...can't be sure of course. When I email I will ask them that too out of curiosity!
