Sooty/Dense Pheomelanin


Gene Fundamentals

Inheritance studies and cloning have proven that how dark or light a horse’s coat ends up is determined by genetics. This is likley the result of many different genes but in the game it has been simplified to two. Sooty influences eumelanin (black pigment) and pheomelanin (red pigment) while dense pheomelanin only influences pheomelanin.
