Lighter limbs on chestnut horse

My Arab is a dark red chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail, he also sports lighter coloured lower legs. I've never seen this on any other horse before. Is there a gene that can cause that? Or am I just not very observant lol. His sire is a chestnut, a little lighter than him (True Colours - if you want to look him up), and his dam is a red bay (Farasha). I'll try to post pictures if I can.

I am going to guess that your horse has some pangare.

This is an extreme case of pangare.

This horse has less extreme pangare.
