I would suspect yes, as your horse does not show any flaxen in it's mane. If the mane was at one point light like the tail and has gotten darker then it could be flaxen with sooty. Beautiful horse BTW!

Except that flaxen doesn't affect black horses (bays/browns included as they are only black modified with agouti). Silver is the black-flaxen gene, but I wouldn't pin either horse as silver either. I'd say gulastra plume, which is likely to be caused by a sabino gene.

My mistake - for some reason I thought they said the horse was a dark liver chestnut.

Peppy - a horse would never grey out like that. Grey works fairly specifically and you'd never see such a light tail with the entire body solid still. Grey almost exclusively starts on the face and moves down with the mane and tail typically affected last/remaining dark while the body lightens. All horses grey differently, but never tail first!

That's not necessarily true. I've seen horses go tail first a good sign of you see the tips lightening. This horse is grey and look how much the tail greyed compared to the rest of him.

I can't speak for the bay, but I can tell you mine is not grey or greying, in any way, shape or form.

Yeah I agree with you I wasn't saying it was. Just saying sometimes tail lightening isn't always a galustra plume it's a sign of grey.

I'm going to agree with plume, as I do not see any other evidence of greying on him

To me, that horse is blatantly grey. And for all we know, he could also have gulastra plume and just happen to be greying! It's not uncommon in Arabs and named after an Arab. But his head and flank/elbow spots are very obviously lightning already, and are quite dappled.
