Although flaxen is considered a dilution gene or set of genes, in that it dilutes the manes and tails of red (chestnut) horses to near-white (flaxen), it is not known how it is inherited.  It's not believed to have any effect on black pigment, nor on body color.

The American Belgian type of horse is flaxen.  Their body colors range from this typical "blond" chestnut (or "sorrel") to deep red chestnut.

Phara Farm in California breeds some stunning flaxen chestnut Arabian horses, most of them far darker shades than the Belgian in the photo above: http://www.PharaFarm.com
