His vet assumed he was named Buck b/c we thought he was a Buckskin, and so her assistant found it necessary to point out to me that he was not a buckskins, but the vet actually stopped her and said he could be, b/c he had the markings. Doesnt he seem to dark for a buckskin tho? He looks like a sandy yellow copper color in the sun,but he has reddish tint to his neck and face.

Genetically he might be I've heard of some weird examples out there. But I still think he is bay. Buckskins are usually born creamy colored not red. So I think he is what you call a golden bay. Jet I think is going to have the same bay color. And if your horse is a buckskin he's not that dark compared to my colts stud Mojo. Mojo is a smutty buckskin he gets dark brown in the winter you can barely tell he is a buckskin that time of year.

I think I might try sending for that creme test that Posieden was telling us about. I'll let you know what it says, lol...I think that would be the only way to say for sure. If he's bay, then your right that he would be a golden bay or maybe a copper bay. All I know is he looks like pretty new penny in the sun :)

I would say Mojo is a brownskin, actually. Brown + cream. I have a friend who has one that looks just like that, also called Buck because they assumed he was just a sooty buckskin.

I may or may not send out for the test. He's gelded, and Im not registering him in anything, so he can be whatever color I want him to be I guess, lol... So I guess I'll mix it up and say both whenever someone asks me, lol.... or just tell them to tell me, haha...
