Lighter limbs on chestnut horse

Howdy,
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.

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.
