Doesn't matter. Kigers don't have any "special" genes that aren't found in other horses.

No but they have old ones. And actually I'm not going to, because, no offense, but I've been told I'm wrong on like everything I've said about colour on this site... Also even on facts of my own horse's breed

You've been told you are wrong because you are wrong. If you can point out current information with something that backs your statements up that we are wrong we would be more than happy to admit it.

Mustangs do not have any special or "old" genes that cannot be found in other horses. They don't act any differently on mustangs than they do on any other bred of horse. It's that simple.

Just like I said... Old. And not to say they don't occur in other horses, but there are ones that occur way more often in mustangs than domestic horses. Like some dun factor markings, like the Nokota (not necessarily a mustang), one of their most common colours is blue roan... rare in most breeds. And also dorsal stripe under the belly too.
And huh, just a thought, up where I am I know a lot more about horses than most people do, though by comparison in age I am young

So let me get this straight...

Nokota horses have older color genes than what is found in other breeds, so cream/gray/dun/etc act differently than they do in other breeds?

No I just mean some things they do don't always show up in other breeds, at least not nearly as often.

Curious as to what you think causes these things to show up in Nokotas more than other breeds?

well I don't mean nokotas in particular. I mean indian bred horses because a lot trace back to spanish horses. Especially ones like Kigers because they were isolated and had no interference with any other breeds for who knows how many years

Lobo dun does not exist. It is not a colour. It isn't real. Who ever told you that it was, didn't know what they were talking about.

Nokota mustangs are not the most isolated breed in the world. That honor goes to Icelandics. And guess what. They display colour the same as every other horse. They have been isolated and breeding only to other Icelandics for just over a thousand years.

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.
