Bay with a blonde tail?

Okay this isn't my horse this is a horse from a for sale ad that I've seen he's a Quarter horse the ad didn't say what color he was but obviously bay but the tail is what gets me. I've never seen this before so I'd figure I'd ask the color genius's on here. What's it called? What causes it? Have you seen it before? It's so weird to me but very pretty IMO.

I have seen several Thoroughbreds like this over the years. More of a silver tail and generally some in the mane as well.

OK-so now I am TOTALLY confused. What a gorgeous bay! But, as the owner of a very very dark brown/black with a silver tail (solid black mane), does that mean he has one too?
