    Chestnut, no agouti, homozygous for silver.

    To me, he looks as if he'll shed out to be quite light. Then again , I've been very surprised before!

    I think someone calculated the odds of this combination at less than 1%

    So sad he's not a she! But, with Allie's regular pics, this will be a GREAT time to study the effects of silver on chestnut

    I just took a peek on color. It says there is no effects of silver on chestnut. Much like bay....True?

    The silver gene only affects black pigment, so you are correct that the silver gene will not affect his chestnut coat. Though, because he is homozygous silver, he can pass that on to his foals if he remained a stud colt.

    Silver will affect bay and black coat colors. Here is a great photo of a silver bay. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...lverMorgan.jpg

    Yes, as it we understand it, the silver gene does not effect chestnuts. Although in our few weeks of deciding to test our boy, many have shared pics of chestnut born foals who are also silver and they do have some differences from "normal" non silver carrying foals. There is not a lot to compare them too though. It will be neat to document his color and changes over time.

    Tell me you've ever seen a regular chestnut foal who had purple skin

    Not kidding - look at Allie's pictures, especially around the eyes - PURPLE

    Not "can" pass that on.. he "WILL" pass that on if bred.

    And that photo of the Morgan is Unconventional...a nice silver bay my friend bred. More pics here:

    Some of the traits noticed somewhat consistently on red-based silvers are purplish skin as a foal, a higher than normal tendency towards flaxen in the mane and tail, exceptionally light overall coat - especially when in conjunction with another dilution gene like cream or champagne - and odd beige hooves even without the presence of white markings. What color are your little guy's hooves?

    Here are the hooves of a heterozygous silver chestnut filly. They definitely seem a little odd to me!
