About: Brown Horse Coats
In Brown horses, the mane, tail, and legs are black, with the rest of the horse being dark brown. These beautiful animals may have some white patches. Brown horses have 4 allele options at the Agouti gene, which could turn the horse 4 different colors:
Allele Options and Colors Produced:
- a – recessive – uniformly black coat
- At – dominant – seal brown, from legs, mane, and tail overflowing with black
- A – dominant – standard bay, restricted black portions
- A+ – dominant – very limited black portions
To be seal-brown, a horse must have at least one dominant copy of the MC1R gene, either Ee or EE (codes for black), and must have either the At/At or At/a genotype at the Agouti locus.
