Buckskin = creme + bay. Haha and bay actually = agouti + black, but we use it as a base coat anyway.

hmmm...
Makes sense. The 'silver yellow (swedish translation)'' in the papers might very well be ''silver+creme" to imply that he has both of them..O_o


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

Ccr is the cream gene (cremello). C+Ccr means heterozygous I THINK. (Don't ask me, I'm just quoting the book lol).

The Dd_ should actually have been DD_ which means the dun gene is activated. The _ at the end means it could be hetero- or homo- zygous... Again I THINK.

But now I think other people are right, he's more likely to be silver dun.

I am with Iride, I would call him a buttermilk dun. He is definitely a cutie regardless of what color you call him.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Bay IS black based :) All colors are either black based or red based.

I think it was meant as a dun on a black base, which gives a grey horse ;)
(now this is really confusing for me xD dun=''black'' in swedish, and black is comletely different..uhm..)

But isn't that the same as a silver dunskin then? :3
I've learnt that at least one of his parents does have the creme-gene.. and that he probably has silver as well not too far back at all.
