Do Equine coat colors fascinate you? They fascinate me… Here are some that I’ve never heard about previously!






Whenever I see an article on equine coat colors, I’m glued.

I was always like that when it came to things genetic.  All those variables – genes – are a wonder to me.  Why are clones so different than the original horse?  How can identical twins be so different – even though they look alike?  How do mutations effect everything else?

If I hadn’t been a Producer, I would have been very happy sitting in a lab all day, studying cells under a megawatt microscope.

Ahh, but alas, I just drool over science journals and articles on equine coat color variations.

HERE WE GO!

I’ve listed here the two webpages that contain these interesting equine coat color facts!

    Great article! I, too, am fascinated by the genetics of coat colors and patterns in horses. Thanks!
