    Hello Colour Experts :D

    I am just curious about something!
    I have noticed my Pally Pinto has been developing more black hairs on his bum, back legs & in his tail as he gets older - is this normal!? I know that black hairs is generally a no-no for solid pally's so since he is a pinto I am not too concerned about his golden status, but just curious!
    His mane & forelock are still completely yellow/white but his tail is probably close to 10% black hair now! :confused:
    Last time I showed him back in 2007 I noticed some black hairs but there is definitely more of them now!

    It is quite common for the "black" hairs to increase as they get older:)*

    Thanks for replying J! :)*

    Is it part of the smut gene or is it just one of those things?
