brown with silver?
I was at this barn and in a stall was this cute yearling.. I cannot post pics of him sorry as I do not have permission from the owner. But his colour is this http://www.bluebonnetstables.com/ima...Mths%20021.jpg
But halfway down his tail goes to a colour like this http://www.allaboutdilutehorses.com/...wn_silver1.jpg
If he has it in his mane u cannot see it yet as he is a yearling and it is still short... Any idea on what's possibly causing this? At first glance I think silver
Probably baby flaxen still growing out and/or gulastra plume.
Are you sure he's not graying? Eight Belles looked exactly the way you're describing (well, black rather than brown) before she was put down.
Kind of hard to judge off this...
Do you know the color of the parents? What breed?
I saw a 3 year old gray who looked like that when I was horse shopping. He was black with almost no other signs of graying except the bottom third of his tail was white- it looked like someone had put a mismatched extension in his tail :-) When I really looked for it I could see there were also white hairs showing up on his face but they were definitely not obvious.
Knowing the breed, or even better, the parents' colors would be helpful.
I do not know anything about him, he is just a horse I saw in a barn... I saw him yesterday too and realized i was wrong about his tail... It does look like gulastra plume, but it starts near the top of the tail. Looks more like this
From looking at the website Blue Bonnets, I found this about the horse pictured.
Milagro's Amber Gem
Rocky Mountain / Kentucky Mountain Filly
2006 Weanling Smokey Black
Sire: Amego's Rockin' Gem color is stated as Dark Chocolate with flaxen mane/tail
Dam: Squirrel's Milagro
I was going to say liver chestnut with flaxen mane... but I'm no expert and I think Evansk got your answer, lol...
Except that's just an example of some other horse that looks kind of like the one Nokota saw.
We can speculate, but it's really impossible to say without (or possibly even with) photos.
The white in the tail could be baby flaxen, gulastra plume, the result of silver, or a sign that it's going gray. Time will probably make it more obvious which it is :-)
