Unusual and rare royal suit of horses

The royal suit is one of the most beautiful and unusual. It is found far from all breeds of horses and is considered to be quite rare. In the old days, to receive as a gift a young horse meant a sign of the highest respect and trust. Demonstrate what the chal suit of horses looks like, photos and videos that you find in this article.


Chaly color belongs to the group of masters and is found only in those individuals that have a special Rn gene. It is the dominant modifier, so it is inherited and modifies the main hair color. However, it is worth remembering that it is not recommended to cross two royal individuals. As a rule, in such cases, the production of offspring is almost always fatal.

So, royal suit is a special combination of white hair and basic color. That is why it has many variations and is called depending on the main color of the horse. The admixture of individual white hair is found mainly on the neck and croup of the animal, and to a lesser extent on the head and legs. Most often in these areas remains the main color. Especially beautiful palsy looks on dark animals, as in the photo.

Important signs

It is important to note that in a royal horse, the eyes and hooves always remain dark in accordance with the main suit. Also a distinctive feature is that the dark hair in these animals never turns gray. Conversely, with age they become darker. Also at different times of the year, the main part of the body may slightly change its shade. But the mane, tail, head and legs always maintain a constant color. Rarely, apples may appear on the chest and croup.

Interesting! Even in contrast to the rest of the horse, the white-colored hair, rather than pure white hair, grows on the spot where the skin is damaged. That is why the healed wounds or scars in this case are almost imperceptible.

Most often, palsy occurs in animals in whose genus there were wild ancestors. For example, in our country most often this color is characteristic of Bashkir horses and heavy horses. In this case, it is considered a good sign. However, there are some exceptions. So, for example, when breeding the Shire breed, stallions with an admixture of white hair on their heads are rejected.

Types of robe

Although it is customary to assume that the nose is found in dark suits, however, this sign can have a horse of almost any color. This applies even to gray, gray, piebald, savras and chubar racers. A variety of masters we offer to look at the photo below. Now consider the most basic types of this color.


This species is considered the most common and can occur in different breeds that retain the Rn gene. Such horses are characterized by the presence of white hair against the background of the main bay color. That is, the main body has a dark brown or brown-red tint with a sign of a pony. The tail, mane, and lower legs are black.


It is also a fairly common form, which is characterized by the presence of blond hair against the background of the main red color. Very often, the bright areas of the body, in the presence of chalice, appear pale pink in color, while the head and legs retain a rich red color. See the photo.


This is perhaps the most unusual and rare color when white hair contrasts against the background of a dark black color. Sometimes such horses appear in daylight in a smoky-blue color, which adds extraordinary and fabulousness.


Also quite a rare species, which is sometimes called, as nightingale with gray. Not all experts distinguish this suit as a separate subspecies, as, depending on the time of year, such horses may acquire a pale yellow color.


This species is most common in horses of the steppe and forest type. Differs in a combination of white hair with clear "wild" marks - dark stripes and spots on the body. For more details on all types of colors, see the photo below.
