chiilaa I have started to question whether there is a sooty gene at all, and just the base coat of brown at work.

Sooty is definitely there, you can see it on red based horses all the time. Look at all those "dirty" or "smutty" palominos. Since brown is an agouti mutation, it only affects black pigmented hair, which red bases don't have.

I've often wondered if some of the variation in the pali colors is due to the particular shade of red they would have been had they not carried cream. For example, is some particular really dark pali perhaps just a creamed out liver chestnut instead of carrying sooty?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

You should have become a geneticist Chiilaa so we could badger you to find the test.

Nope. Studying to be a primary school teacher. There isn't much call for equine geneticists here in Australia

You have to remember, most registries do not register 'brown' horses as browns, they register them as 'dark bay', especially in Throughbreds.

I personally think 'dark bay' is an outdated term to refer to brown/seal brown. They're either bay or brown, not bay or dark bay.
