We know that horse coat colors are broken down into 4-5 base colors, brown, black, grey, white, and sometimes chestnut. However, it is the DNA or genetics that really determines what color the hair /coat actually is. In today’s EQA # 238 we learn about some rare and unique horse coat colors. From the science of embryos fusing to bizarre DNA errors, we create some pretty amazing horse coat colors. Join Heather in this 2 part episode on some really extravagant horse coat colors.
