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.
