Eh Druydess that site is a fairly old, non-maintained site that has not stayed current. Some of the information remains up-to-date, but most of it is not. As well as that, some of the "information" is just wild speculation with no basis in fact at all.

In terms of flaxen, it can't be a dominant gene, because non-flaxen parents can have a flaxen foal, and it can't be recessive, because two flaxen horses can produce a non flaxen horse.

I realize that..it states is can't be dominant. I listed it as one of many theories, as the site itself acknowledges.
Until we have conclusive evidence- it's all speculation. It is useful in explaining the color itself as it is expressed in horses,
