He was sold before we ever tested or figured it out.
I've also never really seen flaxen only partially color out a mane and tail - its typically all or nothing I do believe. This horses mane and tail has the same sort of streaking we see on a silver buckskin filly our friend owns where her mane is highlights of black and white and her black tail has a white coon stripe down it.
He's very very gorgeous either way!

Thank you very, very much! It has been a hassle trying to decide his color. I really wish I had some magical person to just name the color and be done! I'm guessing, with what people have been saying about the silvering, that he has silver in him! Which is a wow factor to me since I had no idea about the special colors and stuff.
