Curious how often this characteristic has or does appear in the UK herd?

The BKKPS has published all this sort of information in the annual Year Book. Copies are online.

There have been 6 gold tip registrations in the year to 9 May 2019. Over time there has been differences in the number of gold tip registrations between different bloodlines - but I wouldn't say there is any correlation between bloodline and colour and I don't think conclusions can be drawn.
