I would either like to see proof of his dam's homozygous agouti, or my vote is test Cinny for it.

Maybe the test for the dam was "aa" and was mistranslated lol

Do you have more photos of him when he is not clipped?
You can't always go by registration papers either, as many people will call a brown horse black and the registry will not always correct this.
Isn't that the truth - according the searchable JC records, Aero (aka Lady Brave Heart) is a chestnut -- she is bay as bay can be. I finally reached out to the JC because the marking descriptions and part of the tattoo we could read all matched - everything but the color (and that is kind of a big discrepancy). I received confirmation that Aero is the horse in question, a mistake had been made on her foal papers and that there had never been a request filed to correct the foal papers -- all her other records carried the correct color description. I can't say I understand all of how the JC papers work, but coming direct from the JC that this IS the horse in question and then having it verified when we located her original owner/breeder is all the convincing I need. So, officially if you look up her tattoo you will get a "chestnut filly" result, when she is anything but.

Hahaha agreed, I'd trust Ndappy and Chiilaa (sp? Sorry, been awhile!) over someone's "recollection" of a test being done.

I want to know if Jynx is brown, black or smokey black. Ndappy told me just to test or I'll never know because she doesn't have enough color to get a good gauge - that's good enough for me! Hopefully testing this year along with LWO!
