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
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
