I have a question. I own 2 chestnuts with flaxen manes and tails. I am breeding them now and in the future. My stallion is homozygous for the black gene but would like to produce a couple of chestnuts to replace their dams.
Does anybody k ow if the gene is isolated that creates the flaxen coloured manes?
I really like the look but do not breed for colour. I did not buy the stallion because of his ability to produce black foals only.
There are a couple of really nice Chestnut stallions that I might breed to and if I had a very good chance of getting flaxen it might help make the decision for me.
I know I used NDappy's and Chillaa names but if anyone can enlighten me would truly be grateful. Shalom
