Random information on the term “Chestnut horse”:

Horses exhibit a diverse array of coat colors and distinctive markings. A specialized vocabulary has evolved to describe them.

While most horses remain the same color throughout life, a few, over the course of several years, will develop a different coat color from that with which they were born. Most white markings are present at birth, and the underlying skin color of a horse does not change, absent disease.

The basic outline of equine coat color genetics has largely been resolved, and DNA tests to determine the likelihood that a horse will have offspring of a given color have been developed for some colors. Discussion, research, and even controversy continues about some of the details, particularly those surrounding spotting patterns, color sub-shades such as “sooty” or “flaxen”, and markings.

Genetically, all horses start out as either chestnut, called “red” by geneticists, represented by the absence of the extension gene (“e”); or black based on the presence of the extension gene (“E”). Therefore, red (“ee”) and black (“EE” or “Ee”) are the two base colors. The Bay color is expressed when a common genetic modifier, the Agouti gene, works on black. The vast range of all other coat colors are created by additional genes’ action upon one of these three coat colors.
