Yeah the one I am thinking of was from TX.






^^^ Above are all from about Sept. 2009

<<< From about May 2010.


I am glad that you got him and he looks to be in a lot better shape then he did last fall.

Wow, so they've produced more than one?! Their horses/lineage should be tested/researched for sure!

I think AHA dislikes brindles because it IS sort of a fluke, but maybe because it's just not mainstream like the sabino gene used to be. It could be that there just haven't been any quality brindle arabs to bring good light to the color. No offense, but your guy is not national champion quality, so I'm glad he was gelded, and I'm glad you're not breeding for color, good job! :)

I'm curious... can he even be registered in the main studbook if he's a brindle? I thought they had regulations on that.

Maybe not, but there are A LOT of Arabians out there that aren't nationals quality. My first and second horses were Arabians, and I'll be the first to admit they were a bit conformationally challenged, but they were still good horses. I enjoyed the heck out of them.

He could probably be registered as a gray.

I went and found the for-sale ad for him, and it listed him as a gray brindle.

Not that it matters, but I am really curious if he is an actual gray or not.

Even if he was born with color, I am thinking all bets are off as to how the gray genetics are expressed with brindle. His mane and tail look like a gray, especially the tail, being lighter at the end. I wonder if he has been getting lighter as he ages? Like was he born that exact shade of "gray" or was he a darker horse with brindling and he is now a lighter horse with brindling?

Just random thoughts, I am not a color expert by any stretch of the imagination.

It seems like I did find a photo of a gray brindle TB somewhere in my travels on the internet.

It will be interesting to see how he ends up. I just looked at the papers he came with and he is actually 3 years 7 months so he might be a little stunted or something...he is only about 14 hands! I had been thinking he only just turned 3...

So he is closer to 4 and still brindle...it would be nice to be able to get baby pics from the breeder!

I know, my boy isn't national quality but I wuv him. And I know some AMAZING horses that just never went to nationals but are still awesome performance horses as well as train horses/barn buddies. I wasn't hatin' :)

You know what kind of points to gray too is the white lower legs with dark hooves (except for the one which must have a sock). But generally, if those were socks the hooves would be pink and they are black. So that is kind of a gray horse characteristic.

Okay, I will quite dominating the thread tonight!

As far as I know, the Arabian horse registry has no rules against showing a horse based on what color it turns out. Now, an Arabian might not show very well if they are an odd color, especially in a halter class, because it is not considered ideal.

As fasr as grey and brindle.... if he is a chimeric brindle, I am not sure how the combination would play out.....perhaps one or both "twins" that he is made of could have been grey, and since the brindling is the striped combination of the colors of those twins, his stripes might be greying at different rates.... or, one set of stripes might grey and the other remain chestnut (or whatever it is.) OR, perhaps the command from one set of DNA trumps the other DNA, and will grey him overall.

But to me he DOES look like he is greying. Most brindles who are non--grey look like lighter and darker shades of whatever color without the white hairs--

Here is a chestnut brindle as a foal and as a 2 year old--



Here is a brindle who is either red dun or chestnut (had seen him called both) as a foal and as an adult--




Here is a bay brindled with white-- but the bay is not lighteneing or changing at all. Makes me wonder if he is chimeric, and one twin was bay, the other grey, or one bay and one roan, or....? Or maybe his brindling is non-chimeric, but more like roan gone crazy, LOL....
