Yup for Silver. When you got her tested did you do the base colour test too?
Nah I just tested for cream, have emailed asking if her sample has been disposed of yet or if they still have it I will get more tests done, other wise I'll send more off!
Wow.. I was gonna say pally til I read the rest of the thread.. But I've never seen a flaxen mane and tail quite so white..
So I agree with taelisyn, good idea to test her for something else..
She's stunning anyway! Will definetly stand out from the crowd
I would have said taffy...but I didn't know colours had designated genes these days. It that all colours or only some colours? Maybe we don't know all the genes that can result in a taffy offspring..?? ';'
That being said, i like nomenculture over genetics so I may be way the wrong kind of nerd and pedantic to enter this conversation... *#)
Whatever she is, she is unusual and gorgeous, and I will happily take her off your hands if you like
Taffy and silver are genetically the same colour WP.
All colours and many patterns have genes, a lot have been identified but they are still working on the tests for.
Haha thanx guys she isn't officially mine yet, I have her on lease/payment terms very lucky to be friends with her breeder!
Cheers for the info Filed away in my brain, and will expand on it as I get the urge. I want a pally......wah! Or a Taffy....
This info does help with if I ever buy in utero...hrmm....
Lol I bred a pally! I do love him and I do love pallies, but a nice bay is my preference haha
Oh yer this filly was born chestnut looking!
There's a line of arabians in the US that often get referred to as palomino (but being purebreds, all of you playing at home know there's no dilute genes in the pure arab gene pool).

HOWever, check out how "pally" or "taffy" some of those flaxen chestnut arabs can look:
"Just" flaxen chestnuts, but they's sure purdy! Just like your girl!
Looking at those pics again I think taffy/silver Just by the look of the mane.. It doesn't look white or yellow like flaxen does (even in Lollyems pics you can se the yellow) It looks more a silver colour to me, unless its the glare/sunlight on it.
But I'm definetly FAR from a geneticist, so its just IMO
The original picture looks like it was taken on an overcast day, like the one of this purebred arab (scanned from one of my ancient mags)
My vote is still for flaxen chestnut!!
Wow the second pic, I always thought it wasnt a pure bred and was pally... Are you sure lol? There are people breeding dilute Arabs getting back to the very high % hehe
From what I remember it wasn't overly overcast lol.
I did wash her tail the other day so was much cleaner haha! Her mane isn't really yellow/flaxen
Does she have Rose of Sharon back in her arabian pedigree?
I have some info here about this line and the chestnuts with flaxen manes and tails, I used to own a descendant who was also this colour.
Both her parents have some % Arab so once I'm back online on a computer, not my iPhone I will look to see
The little chocolate flaxen colt is by Talika Rhinegold( by Ringing Gold who has a couple of crosses to Rose of Sharon) out of Picadilly Camilla (by Count Manilla - who also has Rose of Sharon in his pedigree!). The magazine is the 1981 issue of Arabian Studs and Stallions and when I was 12 that colt was my fantasy horse ! I wonder what colour he grew up to be? Love the colour of your filly!!
Re: the Tiffany Ranch stallion - he is a purebred, but I don't think they have any evidence (ie cream testing) that he is palomino, they just claim that he is. If you look at his page, NONE of his purebred progeny are pally or bucky - only the partbreds. Only in America.......:}
