    I think it's the sabino gene that causes it.

    I couldn't tell you the names, but I have seen the occasional TB at the track with it.

    In british shetland ponies the trait is called "rosson svans" in sweden, which translates to Rosson tail. Since white marking are so rare in black based shetlands this trait is barely ever seen coupled with any kind of markings.
    It's recessive and can be traced back to the stallion Rosson of Transy. I know next to nothing about gulastra plume in other breeds other then that some can be traced back to a stallion called Gulastra?

    Yes, I had thought so. I've seen Arabs and TBs with it.

    Also, what do you mean by silver? There is a silver gene thats causes what may look like "flaxen."
