Bahaha. You sound like you'd be crushed to know you own a different coloured horse.

Yep, definitely a bay. He had a 29% chance of being a buckskin since only daddy is a cream carrier, but there was the same probability that he would be bay.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

A good way to tell between bay and dark buckskin is that the shine on a buckskin's coat all over will be silver or gold. You can see in the pictures of Citrus that his coat shines red/copper. Bays won't shine silver or gold.

I do love his red/copper color :)

My mare is a very light bay and we thought she was buckskin until a friend who breeds coloured Australian Stock Horses pointed out that little trick. Needless to say I was sad. Boring old bay, haha. Up until then I'd always had interesting colours. Pinto, palomino, roan, even a taffy

I've never really heard the term 'red buckskin' until this thread, but this was from the website you posted. He's what I interpreted to be a red buckskin. In the pictures, his dam looks to be buckskin and they said in the comment that his sire
Is a perlino. He can't be a bay if those are what his parents are.

I don't know genetics of horses, but I would call that coloration a "blood bay".

Red buckskins look a lot like cherry/blood bays, but if you get their genetics tested, they will show buckskin genes. My friend was appalled when he foal that was supposed to be a buckskin came out bay! But then we found out she was genetically red buckskin. She came from a palomino dam and standard bay sire.
