Gray is like throwing an imaginary white blanket over a horse of any color...it covers over whatever the horse's base color is. Every gray horse has a base color before they went gray, but that base color can start out any color at all.
Buckskin is cream on bay (so yes black + agouti). A buckskin gone gray would be that plus gray.
And it is unfortunate that most pedigrees only tell us gray on a gray horse without the base color. Knowing the base color would be useful for knowing genetic possibilities. Without knowing the base color of the sire before he went gray we don't know what the color possibilities are for his offspring.
