I've only ever seen frosting on buckskins, but not all buckskins. Abby doesn't have any frosting and the only other buckskin I know of doesn't either. However..he was so sooty that he looked almost dark bay.
Now ND here is one for you... could he be a minimal Rabicano with guard hairs on his mane??
Well that may be what I meant... not sure though. I am studying up on genetics but haven't gotten into Sabino...Rabicano...and White markings all that much...ok not at all really! Lol. I believe it was Rabicano though. Which tends to make white hairs on the tail.
Thanks everyone for your responses! I do agree on the Dunskin issue too. Thanks again.
Is frosting an extra modifer that any horse could have? Like a bay or chesnut? Because I was under the impression that it was only related to Dun/Buckskin, and actually I just went back up so I think NdAppy may be on to something but I also see it in regular duns, not just dunskins. So i'm not sure if it's JUST the creme gene. Or if it's just one of those primitive markings that show up in varying degrees.
