General information

Chestnut coat colour is one of the major coat colours in the horse. Chestnut coat colour is characterised by a red coat with the lack of black or brown pigments. Melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R), known as the extension (E) locus, is associated with the production and balance of black and red pigments. MC1R is the candidate gene for the chestnut coat colour in the horse.

Clinical features
