What color is this?

Just curious what color you would call this? Do flaxen chestnuts usually have a dark tail? Whatever he is, I'm drooling over him (found him on CL).

Amber Champagne would be my best guess. Here is a link that can give you more information. He is VERY pretty!

He doesn't hit me as a champagne. I can't find his ad again, but his eyes were dark.

His nose and legs are kind of interesting too.

Honestly id just say sorrel/chestnut with a flaxen mane & tail.

That horse is not champagne, he just looks like a flaxen chestnut with a sooty tail.

Okay after reading this one, I am thinking more of a bay with a silver gene on top. I do not know much about genetics and the differences in colors but I am just throwing this out there.

Chestnut/sorrel flaxen with a sooty tail. Not champagne and not silver.

The light legs are totally normal on red based horses.

Interesting, I didn't know that sooty could effect just the tail.
    06-24-2011, 04:11 PM
Yep it can affect just the tail, or part of the tail. Or it can affect just the man or part of the mane.

This stallion is a tested palomino. The dark mane is being caused by sooty. Just to show how centralised it can be lol.
