Brownskin is a brown horse with one cream gene. Buckskin is a bay horse with one cream gene.
Brown and bay are variations of the same gene, so they share similar traits. Brown will tend to be more seasonal - darker in winter, bay mimicking in summer. Brown has paler "soft" points - the muzzle, behind the eyes, inside the legs, in the flank, the elbow, and often under the tail.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
