The solid color is caused by the allele, ar when it is combined with either, another ar, at or a. ar extends the eumelanin up the hair shaft so that only the tip of the hair appears red.  This gives a ticked appearance that is darker than that of the agouti. The solid gene also extends the ticking through the entire body, giving a solid color over the entire pig.
