Oh wow lol you learn something new every day!! Lol I am still brushing up on my colors and genetics = ) I figured it wasn't silver as silver does do that to the mane and tail. And alot of the time bays do general do get white hairs in the mane and tail naturally but yours seems a bit more extreme that's probably from the Lp. I also posted something including the Lp Gene and it does do some crazy things! So the Lp is probably what is making the black points on her legs not look quite as dark unless her legs are just dusty.
It could be but it also may not be. My gelding is a bay blanket with varnishing and his points are still black albeit he has lightning marks they are still black. As I said, it may or may not be. At her age if she were to show LP characteristics it would most likely be far more advanced than it is.
Lp is just a crazy gene. I posted a post about a Grulla who was genetically grulla with appy genes and at about 2 she turned a light palomino color and now here she is at 6 and looks like a palomino appy but if you run a dna test she is definitely a grulla!! It's crazy and Lp gene is always different that's what I love about it.
Is silver even present in standard stock breeds like QH and Appy? I would consider her a wild bay. That doesn't necessarily restrict the point to a minimal area, it can also simply lighten them. I would say that the silver hairs in her main/tail/coat are a result of her appy breeding (LP gene). She is a pretty girl.
Thank you guys for all the help and compliments.
I am pretty sure you are all saying she is some variation of bay with LP influencing the silver in her.
I have been trying to figure out what colour she is for 2 1/2 years!
