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.

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.

Frosting happens on both buckskins AND duns. Much more common on buckskins, but if you need proof it happens on duns as well, look at Fjords.

Frosting is very common on dun factor horses and many horses reproduce it consistently:

I swear every Jack Slade baby has the mane I could add pictures until the end of time, they're all so pretty

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.

Im fairly certain it's a primitive marking of some sort, though I haven't seen it much on red duns.
