No I never get any comments about him looking like Denny lol!

His sire is Guaranteed Gold, the cremello TB stallion of True Colours Farm. I won't post any pictures of him without his owner's permission but here is her website. True Colours Farm | Breeders of Unique Thoroughbreds, Sport Horses, and Paints I have been lucky enough to meet and deal with GG, he is a wonderful stallion, very sweet boy :)

I do have a few pictures of his dam, they aren't very good but I'll post them anyway. She is a 16.1 hh CWHBA mare by Sergeant Pepper(Holsteiner stallion).

I *think* she is brown, but since I learned about browns, every 'bay' horse looks brown to me>.< she definitely has that sooty countershading.

He could either be a sooty buckskin, or a sooty brown buckskin.

I think there is no sooty buckskin, I think sooty usually comes from a horse being brown based, if you look at most brown buckskins, they look sooty. So im going with a Brown Buckskin

I believe that GG is an At carrier.

I also believe that the horse in the op is a brownskin/smokey brown.

So is "brown buckskin" different than "smokey brown"? I haven't heard of brown buckskin before but I do know that there are some GG offspring that are smokey brown for sure. I believe they were DNA tested as well. Hmm this is so interesting!

TexanFreedom, I'm with you on that one! Since reading about brown horses, all bays look brown to me! I guess bay is a rare colour now lol :p

No, they are the same thing. Smokey brown/brownskin/brown buckskin is black + brown agouti (instead of bay agouti) + cream. Where as buckskins are black + bay agouti + cream.

Oh I see! Thanks NdAppy!

Does anyone know a company where I can send in his hair to get DNA tested?

Pet DNA Services of AZ - Equine Services << This is the only company that currently tests for brown and only brown/agouti.

UC Davis and Animal genetics tests for everything else.

He is puuurdy! Little bit lighter than my boy but they are definitely similar. Is he a QH?

Thanks again NdAppy! I did send them an email once and they never got back to me, I'll try again though. I thought maybe there was another place that can test for it but I guess not.
