I think part of it too is that a lot of people don't recognize brown as a color.

I put that down to stubborness

LOL, looking closely again, it is possible that he is just a very sooty buckskin, though I can't say for sure. If you send him off for testing with Finn and Fi, you'll have to let us know the results.

How long have you had him?

Huh. How strange. Interesting though. That might explain Abby's random little spot. She's buckskin, so she's already golden, but there's a small, quarter-sized spot on her bum that is always lighter coloured and definitely noticeable. It's not white like her other two small spots that show up when she sheds from the winter that I've posted about before.

My first thought about his parentage is that he may have been mis-registered. Perhaps he could be a sooty buckskin, if he inherited the cream gene from his mamma. I knew of a horse (over the internet, on another forum) that was basically the same colour, minus the gold spot, and genetically tested as buckskin, so it is possible despite the fact that he doesn't LOOK buckskin. The gold spot could be lack of sooty. He could even be a smokey black, genetically speaking it is a possibility with a dilute parent and a parent that HAS to have black base (or he could not be black based himself).

But I'm not a colour expert. Going to assume the dun parent was black-based, because the pali parent cannot have given him a black gene (due to being red-based, and red-based horses cannot carry black). If the dun parent was grulla, then the pali would have 'donated' the agouti gene to make bay/buckskin.

My best friend has owned him since last October, but he's been here on my property since May of last year.

I had thought the foal picture I had seen of him before, his dam was a red dun, but I can't seem to find that picture again and I may be remembering incorrectly. It's certainly possible she was a bay dun and I'm remembering it wrong. Could have sworn she was red dun though. I wish I could find that picture again!

Smrobs, will definitely update with testing results! Lol

Wow, this is so weird. My sooty buckskin has that exact same spot. They look so similar I was about to ask my friend why she posted a pic of my horse without telling me.

This thread seems to be getting off the topic of the spot but I want to know why my guy has it too. Last year he didn't have it. This year he has the largest one in the same spot but then one on the other side and smaller ones on each side of his bum.

Subbing to this post - curious to see what the genetic test comes back as!
