This stallion is quite a unique color. Some have speculated he is a very dark liver chestnut, I read him as a black silver, but with him living wild on the range there is also a chance that it is just sun bleaching (as it does not appear to go to the roots on the mane), though other darker horses in the same area do not have the faded mane and tail. He comes out of the south steens herd, which is also where the silver bay that someone else posted came out of. There were numerous other horses with light manes/tales that I was putting off as just a lot of flaxen manes/tales, but now I am speculating there is a silver gene in the herds in that area.





Links to some pics that are not mine that look like they could be silver dapple of mustangs living in the same general area

That does looks as though it could be silver to me. It's not right for just bleaching and I don't see red base at all.

I tried to post some links to other horses that look quite 'silver' that come from teh herds in that area, but don't seem to be able to.
