I wonder if she is a buckskin with the silver dapple gene? I've been looking at a lot of rocky mountain horse pictures lately and one of the websites I stumbled across had a silver buckskin and the coloring was very similar. I need to see if I can find that pic again...

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

This is a yearling stud colt that one of our good friends raised. He is a nice Silver Buckskin...and with our bay mare and palomino stud (w/ a silver gene) chances are HHF should raise one soon...

I really don't see buckskin on Misty, her "dark points" aren't nearly dark enough, and her mane is definitely blonde, with just dark roots. Only a few stray blacks in her tail. I would be inclined to think she is just a pangare/mealy chestnut if it weren't for the dark muzzle and the dark grey/silver on her legs.

I'm leaning towards a silver bay with her at this point....the picture below is a silver bay that is marked IDENTICAL to her, with the exception of he does not have her white coronet bands and white star/strip combo. This picture shows what Misty's coloring looks like in person much more accurately than my poor camera and limited skills captures!

Now I'm curious about mine. I wonder can one have both the silver dapple and the sooty gene together? I have a breeding stock paint Buckskin that looks almost exactly like the silver buckskin colt above, except when he sheds in the spring he gets large dark brown, almost black patches over both shoulders, almost a foot in diameter, and another over his rump. He is so pale everywhere else, that he looks filthy, but it's just his odd coloring. I'll try to take pics at some point. But is it possible to have both, or are his dark splothes a throwback to his paint gene? He has no white except for his hind socks.
