Chestnut Color Genetics Chart by MagicWindsStables Chestnut Color Genetics Chart by MagicWindsStables
:new: I forgot pangare!!! Oh I could slap myself silly. Pangare will be on the bay sheet! Promise! :new:

Here you have one of many charts I am making with as much information on the different genetics as I can possibly fit. I love genetics and colors, and I know a lot of you do, too. I'm sure not all of my information is 100% correct but this is the most recent stuff I've found. I've kept it simplified. If you guys have anything to add, or notice a mistake, go ahead and let me know!

:bulletred: The art Belongs to [link] JNFerrigno, who was oh so awesome enough to not only MAKE this totally fun free horse creator [link]
But was also gracious enough to let me use it for my project! Go check out her gallery, because this person is awesome!!!

I have never heard of the agouti gene affecting the shade of the chestnut horse - do you have any sources on this? (I'm sure there is a genetic control for the darkness of the red hairs but I highly doubt that it's caused by agouti)

My horse judging teacher taught that a sorrel has lighter under side as well

Something I have caught onto is that some chestnuts have a base of a brown tail, but as it goes down the tailbone, the hairs start coming out black. A personal theory is that this may be caused by Agouti, not sure if I am right but its just a theory I'd like to test for when I get a chance(since I have 3 chestnuts/sorrels. My paint gelding is almost flaxen at the bottom and my other two QHs have dark tips).

that is so true. My mare has a mixture of black, chestnut, and flaxen hairs in her tail. I'd love to look into more why some chestnuts have black tails.

We should totally start searching for the answer and then making a "What causes what" type chart.

I've been trying to make a chart like that for over a month and have been having trouble figuring out how to go about it.

Maybe make it like a graph? First row be "average", next row be "single cream", then next row "double cream" and then do duns, champagnes, pearls[with cream gene], sooty, silver, flaxen and then do the more than one genes, with maybe sooty + flaxen + cream, or cream + dun.
