Brown + cream

So most of you know so many actually 'brown' horses are called bays, because they look like a bay horse, but have a mealy muzzle, lighter underbelly, ect. So they're actually brown.

So a Cremello can produce palomino foals from Chestnut mares, buckskin or palomino from bay/blacks.


But what about when bred to a mare that is 'bay', but actually brown? Then what happens? Usually people list what their studs can produce out of different color mares, but brown is never mentioned.

You can call it many things, but the "accepted" term is brown buckskin. Other names include smoky brown and brownskin. However, you get lots of breeders/owners who just don't get that brown is a colour, and then they get called dark buckskin or sooty buckskin.
Wallaby, smrobs, NdAppy and 1 others like this.

You would most likely get a buckskin with a cross between a cremello (or a palomino) and a brown.

LOL, Chiilaa, even those of us that recognize brown as a separate color still have a difficult time not calling the cream carrier a sooty buckskin instead of a brownskin .

Seriously, though, that's my favorite cream shade

PetDNA in Arizona has an actual test for the smoky brown or brown period.

Some registries don't recognize 'brown' as a color. The Arabs only recognize black or bay, not brown, so regardless of variations on the color the horse will only be listed as a bay or black.
