Chillaa ND Appy I need your help.

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

The causes of flaxen have not been isolated yet. Sometimes it inherits in families, other times it doesn't. Sometimes two chestnuts with dark manes/tails will pop out a foal with flaxen, sometimes two flaxen parents will have a foal without. It's one of those really awesome crapshoots that can't even nearly be predicted lol.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Ditto what Chiilaa said. I wish that the flaxen gene has been isolated as I love flaxen reds.

Chillaa thanks for the info.
Anyone know of any Arabian lines that carry the gene. both of my girls have The Minstrel in their pedigrees.

I am also amazed that it only took you 3 minutes to find and answer this thread while keeping up a lively debate on another thread
Can I borrow your technical super powers to learn how to post pictures? Shalom

I don't personally know of any lines, but look at the produce and heritage, and see what is there.

I should be studying for an exam, so I am procrastinating. That doubles my forum efficiency lol.

I don't know much about Arabian lines otherwise I would offer to keep my eyes open. I'm more of the stock breeds.

LOVE this gorgeous guy, but he's not what your looking for

Clearly this horse is just not well taken care of. In light of that, I'm willing to put myself out there and take him off the hands of the owner! It's a tough job but someone has to stand up and do it!

NDappy you are a good judge of horse flesh. thanks for the lesson as well.
I do own a few QH mares here so i would not be adverse to breeding one of them for a flaxen mane. Now you are tempting me.
If anyone knows of any lines that throw a lot of flaxen let me know. Shalom

hehehe David his owner is on this forum. I believe that he has thrown a good portion of flaxen foals, but not 110% on that.
