Oh and I do see the paper clip icon so this might not be too hard after all. I don't know how to open another site on the computer and will have to create a file for pictures. Shalom

Oh dear, no judgements, believe me. I tend to repel technology as well. I do have a photobucket account but it froze up on me for some reason over a year ago and I can't upload anymore pictures. Ha ha I am sure it is a simple fix but... alas, I am not techie ha ha

I am from the generation BEFORE everyone was so comfy with computers. Ha ha

My 1st thought when I read your description was gulastra plume-

Time will tell I guess

The black horse in the top picture is what her tail looks like as we speak.
What exactly is gulastra plume and what causes it? Can she pass this on to her foals? Shalom

Some say its a form of Sabino and some say its a splash like mimic. IDK if there is genetic testing for it though. The color was named after the stallion Gulastra, whose descendants inherited the mutation. Its also known as Silver tail.

This is a TB with the gene

This is the first and only time I want NDappy to be wrong about anything related to colour genetics.
She probably isnt but I can hope can't I? Shalom

Db, I know what you mean about the blonde taking over the black. I don't think it is baby flaxen either. I rarely have issues posting pictures so I will post a few of the same gelding from baby to 1 1/2 and tell me if it is what your filly is also doing. Color genetics on this guy are Ee Aa and no dilutes or other coat modifiers.

Looks like normal baby flaxen

Appears to be growing

(Sorry, Halloween dress up ) yes it is definitely growing

1 year old and that is a lot of blonde

Summer yearling and still very long blonde

In between his younger half sisters and they have normal black tails

December and 1 1/2 years old, simply blonde and awesome

No idea what causes this, but it is pretty cool and there goes my sister's hopes of having an easier time keeping a tail clean looking when she got a non-grey foal

I got a better look up close today and the blonde is blonde from the roots to the end.
She will be a black with minimal white and a white tail.
I thought since the colt was black with four whites and a star strip and snip and their half sister is a bay rabicano that Kemah would be the plain one.
Guess she wasnt going to let that happen.
Thanks sunnydraco and all the rest for your help with the pictures. Shalom

Ooh that is cool! I almost got a Rocky Mountain because I love the flaxen mane and tail on a dark horse! Alas they were all WAY out of my price range! Never heard of it on an Arab or Thoroughbred though. Good thing I'm not still looking or I'd be banging on your door db!
