Wow, I've never heard of countershading. o_O

I wonder which one it is? :P (My vote goes to the closest one. XD)

Bays and buckskins most commonly have countershading, but it can show up on any horse. All it is is a dorsal stripe without being dun. Dun dorsals do have some defining characteristics, but both countershading/dorsals can mimic each other.

Just wanna say, u guys are so good at this. I really wouldnt have guessed Buckskin at all, lol.... He's darker than my bay (that may or may not be a buckskin) that I posted last month, and yet he's a Buckskin. And for the life of me I can never really keep tobiono and overo (and their patterns) straight. I get so confused, and I just enjoy to see how much smart u guys r than me! :P LOL!

Amen to this! I enjoy learning about the different "tones" of coat colors, patterns, etc.

I'll admit I was very surprised to find out he could be a buckskin; I would have never so much as suggested it (as you can see it the title, I thought he was a sooty bay).
