CUSTOM MINI MODEL HORSES
A horse with black skin but white or mixed dark and white hairs. Gray horses can be born any color, and lighten as they age. A dapple gray coat has lighter rings of grey hairs, called dapples, scattered throughout.
A horse with a black base color and the dun gene. Coat is solid "mouse-colored" gray or silver (can also be almost brownish-gray) with black or dark gray primitive markings.
Similar to a cremello, a perlino is genetically a bay base coat with two dilute genes. Eyes are blue. Mane, tail and points are not black, but are usually darker than the body coat, generally a reddish or rust color, not to be confused with a red dun.
Chestnut is a reddish, orangish, brownish coat with a mane and tail in the same family. Chestnut is characterized by the absolute absence of true black hairs. It is one of the most common horse coat colors, seen in almost every breed.
Brown horses often resemble bays, but they have a specific genetic makeup. Seal browns are the expression of the Agouti gene on a black base coat. A seal brown will have lighter tones on the muzzle and flank.
A brindle pattern appears as vertical stripes along the neck, back, hindquarters, and upper legs. A brindle can have a base coat color of any color. Recorded examples have been bay, chestnut, palomino, and dun. Earliest documented cases were said to have red dun or grulla (pictured) as a base coat. The stripes can be lighter or darker than the base coat.
