Ok Color people, flaxen mane with brown hairs?

So theres a few things going on with the new pony I am not quit sure about.

1. Her mane and tail is flaxen, but her mane has just as many chocolate colored hair as the flazen. What would make her mane flaxen with the brown hairs?

2, Her legs get darker on the bottom than htey are on the top. I am not sure why they would do this?

I know nothing about colors, and have never seen this before.

How old is the pony? Any info at all on sire/dam?
    09-06-2012, 09:51 PM
She is 10-12, ( older than I thought but ok) No info on sire and dam. She does seem to be gaited, but she was bought at auction with history unknown.

The lighting in the photos is making it hard to guess with any certainty. Do you have any others in different lighting?

No not yet. The sun was going down when we got home (busted a belt on the truck on the way back) I can definitely get some different ones with earlier lighting in the morning after the sun rises.

You have yourself a horse with the Silver gene.( at least the pictures make it look that way)
Silver effect Different Colors Like bay & black & others.
I have a Silver Black Gelding see the similarity in them just mines silver black & yours is silver bay.


Wish I had a better Mane & tail pictures to show you (may take some tomorrow XD)

She could be silver bay, and that is not what I was leaning toward personally. However, it's impossible to tell for certain from those photos, as they are poorly lit and taken in the early evening.
