Just curious... my friend has a 13-yr-old gelding whom her family has owned his whole life. They also own both parents.
I was just wondering what genes his parents, the dam inparticular, would be carrying to cause his color.
He's nothing special, just a sorrel with a flaxen mane and tail.
The sire is a palomino (his sire was a palomino & dam a dark sorrel) and the dam is a bay. I know palomino often dilutes, so is that why they got a sorrel w/flaxen out of a bay?
