Could Citrus be a red buckskin?

Citrus's dad is a palomino and his mom is a dark bay..... I just read something that said buckskin has one creme dilute parent, which would be the palomino stallion.....

I also read that there can be red buckskins.... I believe both of Citrus' siblings are grullo.....

Show me some pics? I can't remember what colour Citrus is :)

I've never heard of a red buckskin. Would you mind posting what you've read about them?

If his siblings are grullo, then one of his parents has the dun gene somewhere. Are they full siblings or half?

No doubt in my mind. Citrus is a bay. A very gorgeous one :)

Buckskins are the result of one cream gene on a bay or seal brown horse. The cream gene, in its heterozygous state, only affects red hair, so the black hair on a horse with one cream gene is left undiluted. Buckskins can vary in shade from very pale buttermilk through a very sooty, dark brown color. Buckskins with countershading (darker color along the topline) often have heavy dappling and a dorsal stripe. They can be mistaken for bays if they are more red than gold, for duns if they have a dorsal, or for seal browns if they are very dark. Buckskins will have at least one cream dilute parent.Morgan Colors- Buckskin Morgan Horses

I copied that right from the link....

He's a bay like his mom. Haha. An adorable one too.

I wonder if his sire was a dunalino, not a palomino if they're grulla.

Oooh. I see what you mean by red buckskin now. I was thinking like a bright sorrel with black points. I looked through the pictures. I still say Citrus is a bay. He's got a richer colour than the "red" buckskin. Dunno if that makes sense.. I can't figure out how to word it, but it makes sense in my head. Haha

I am reasonably sure that Citrus does not have a cream gene. There is no dilution of the bay colour at all. It is strong, red, and has a silvery sheen to it. That is bay in a nut shell.
