Hi all, my first post YAY! Im looking at a yearling welsh d on sunday, she's advertised as buckskin / chocolate dun, in the photo tho she looks very dark (almost black) I was just wondering if she will ever get lighter? Or stay dark? Her sire is cremello not sure about dam xx
That doesn't look like any buckskin that I've seen. Maybe they put up the wrong picture in the add?
Bucksin is a color that resembles shades of tanned deerskin.
Here's what I've known to be a buckskin:
To answer your question, horses will change color or shades of color with the change of seasons. Some will loose their color and become gray or white over time. But I don't think the horse you are asking about will lighten up to a buckskin color. I could be wrong.
