    Most foals are born with light coloured tails.
    Her 1/2 brother also had baby flaxen but it grew out. I was waiting for Kemahs to darken but then realized how old she was and I have not seen one retain the light colour that long. Shalom

    I have not seen that much baby flaxen on a colt at 10 months of age.
    I guess I will have to wait a year for proof.
    I am not really that interested in colour and have no real preference but I am hoping her tail stays blond. Shalom
    Hey Donald! Next time PM one of us to get our attention. Things have been nuts here with the subzero temps so I've just been skimming things for the most part.

    Chestnuts with plume or sabino or silvering? I'm not sure what the cause of it is, but here are photos of my colt Storm, and his flax that is still very present now at 3. :) Beautiful filly db!!
    I still have not totally found the answer to his unique tail.

    Storm at 4 months, notice the color difference between his tail and his dams

    Storm at 1 year

    Storm just turning 2
    Storm at just at 2.jpg

    Flax starts at the top underside, and goes down, it lightens in the summer too

    Yes, his mane has lightened too. But looks to be darkening again. Note his tail is filthy because of being out all winter...

    I hope you find the answer to your filly's unique plumage. She's going to be a looker for sure!! I'm enjoying looking at the photos of other horses with the plume!!

    Ndappy next time you and Chillaa will get a PM from me. I promise.

    Elizabeth Bowers thanks for the compliment on the filly. She is going to be stunning even if the plume darkens. You need to see her in person to appreciate how good she is. She is going to be a very well built arabian mare.
    I like your colt also. IMO he is a minimal rabicano. I have a mare that is minimally expressed yet throws very loud offspring . She is the dam of the bay filly. Her tail looks like your boys and her mane is also flexed with lighter Flaxen. Shalom

    I would love to db but your way in Texas, and I in PA, that would be a long ride. I might just make a visit, just to say I did, since i'v never been to TX.
    You think so? He's got a good bit of flecking on his sides, and his face. I may never really know for sure, but one thing is he's my buddy, and I plan on keeping him forever.

    I agree with db-- looks like he could have the rabicano gene.
