The Chestnut color in Icelandic Horses is recessive to Black.  Chestnut  must be passed to the horse from
horse will be Black, yet will carry the Chestnut gene and have the potential to pass it to any offspring.

Chestnut Horses can be modified by several of the color modifying genes. The color modifiers affecting
Chestnut and found in the Icelandic Horse are Cream, Dun, Pinto, Roan, Grey and Splashed White. While a
Chestnut horse can carry the silver dapple gene, it will be hidden, yet it can be passed to offspring.

We are looking for photos of beautiful Icelandic Horses in all of these colors or combinations there of.
