Buckskin? Smokey brown?

Ok, I have a question for everyone! I have a 3 year old wb/tb and I still don't know what colour he is! His sire is cremello and his dam is plain bay. When he was younger he looked buckskin, but as he shed out, he changed colour a lot and now he looks smokey brown (which is what I think he is).

Here are some pictures of him, through the seasons and as he ages. He also has a dark dorsal stripe (or countershading?) down his back but I don't have any good pictures of it. It seems to be getting darker as he ages. His legs/dark points are a dark chocolate brown, not black which makes me lean towards smokey brown!

Spring as a coming 2 yr old

Winter- 2 yr old

Also, can anyone tell me some places to get him DNA tested? I am in Ontario, Canada but I believe the only places to test are in the USA? If you know a good company, let me know!

Thanks!

That horse is his half-brother, he is buckskin I believe. Their colours are pretty close in the winter but he is much much lighter than my boy Simon in the summer. His half-brother's points are actually black, unlike Simon, and he doesn't get the dark neck/shoulder area like Simon.

It is pretty funny how he changes colour so much! People think he is a different horse all the time lol!

I would say a brown based buckskin.

If it were a dorsal stripe, it would not fade season to season. It would be very defined and there no matter what coat change was occuring. =)

Do you have any pictures of the dam and sire? He's a gorgeous little horse.

Yep, smoky brown or brownskin (I think those are technically the same thing).

And a gorgeous one at that .

Ohhhh I see, thanks ThirteenAcres. So would it just be countershading then? It looks really interesting on him, I like it!

Yep! If it faded in and out or disappeared with the seasons and coat changes, it would be countershading.

LMAO your horse is the spitting image of my Dusty and he does the same thing changes colors alot has a dorsal stripe and a few small leg barrings. Do you ever get comments about him looking like Denny from the Snowy River movies.... I get it all the time when people see Dusty for the first time.
