Silver gene found in Andalusians
It appears that the silver gene has been identified in the Andalusian. The stallion Arco Iris is said to have tested EE Aa N/Z, which would make him a red (bay-based) silver. If you look at his pictures here and the video here, he certainly looks like a silver. This is a cool discovery, since many believed this was not a color that would be found in Spanish horses.
