Chestnut colour question
2 Attachment(s)
Why is my chestunt ponies mane niether red nor flaxen but a dirty in between grey colour? Is the mane colour affected by genes or does it just simply vary from horse to horse? Sorry for the slightly dumb question :lol:

He probably has some sooty counter acting what looks like would normally be a flaxen mane.

So it should of been flaxen but some factor made it go this dirty colour?

NdAppy 01-09-2013 06:29 PM

Yes. Sooty is what is causing the dirty look.
