Chestnut horses[edit]

Chestnut with flaxen Mane and Tail, Fuchs mit weißem Langhaar, Lichtfuchs[edit]

English: there are two genes which cause white or flaxen manes and tails. The proposed (but not yet discovered) flaxen gene and the silver dapple gene
English: Chestnut horses with lighter colored manes and tails are thought to be affected by a "flaxen gene." However, the action of this gene has not yet been determined. When the effect is lacking, a chestnut horse will have a mane and tail the same color as its body.
Deutsch: Ursprünglich wurden alle braunen Pferde mit hellerer Mähne und Schweif als Lichtfüchse bezeichnet. Es gibt jedoch zwei völlig verschiedene Gene, die dieses Aussehen hervorrufen.
Deutsch: Das Flaxengen hellt die braune Mähne von Füchsen zu weiß oder blond auf. Auf die schwarze Mähne von Braunen hat es keinen Einfluss. Das Gen wird rezessiv vererbt. Wenn man also einen Haflinger mit einem Fuchs ohne dieses Gen verpaart, bekommen die Nachkommen eine braune Mähne.
