No pictures?! How cruel!

Sounds like an awesome little filly.

db, did you look into checking for the stallion Gulastra in your filly's pedigree? Interesting that it has a name and is named after the Arabian stallion who is known for the origin of the silver plume, learned something new today. I just went hunting through the gelding's pedigree that I posted above, found Gulastra through his maternal grandsire Abu Wad, following the paternal granddam... Long way in generations from the 2012 gelding since Gulastra foaled in 1924, but he does have a line that goes back to him. Quite interesting but I couldn't find pictures of any of Gulastra's with noticeable plummage but it seems to vary a lot with how much is shown. Maybe your stallion or mare have a few blonde tail hairs that aren't very noticeable? Just a thought

That's because they're caused by different genes. Flaxen is the lightened mane and tail on a red-based horse. The RMH color is caused by silver. The black body with silvery mane and tail is a silver black or silver dapple horse. The tail on the Arabs and TBs posted is a gulastra plume, which hasn't been identified as an independent gene at all and is a rare occurrence.

Kemah by Starlight's dam is a daughter of Bask Flame with one or two lines of crabbet but mostly polish and a grandaughter of Karajdgore. I might not have spelt that name right. I am too lazy to go look at her pedigree.
Her sire is half Polish and half Egyptian a grandson of both The Minstrel and Promotion.
I will have to do some research in the next few days sunnydraco.
Thanks for the information and the new task.
I am very familiar with Polish bloodlines as that is what I mainly have.
Maybe deserthorswoman with her superior knowlede of diverse bloodlines can clue me in and save me from searching. Think she will take the hint anyone? Shalom

You really need to post pictures. We want to see her. For that matter, we want to see all of your horses.

Someone said something about getting a kid to help you. That might sound like a joke, but when I was Professor of Veterinary Science at a university, I was forced, along with a whole group of people with lots of letters after their names, to take some computer courses. I was the best one in the class. Everybody thought that I was so smart. What actually happened was that my son, 12 years old at that time, helped me through the course.

Kids are amazing. They know everything about uploading pictures and resizing them and all sorts of things. They can even show you how to put the "kid filters" on your computers. They can also take them off without you knowing it.
