I stumbled across this picture and it's almost a silver bay, is that even possible. I just need your input on what colour this horse is because he is absolutely gorgeous! I really love it and have never seen it before.
It's a buckskin. Like Chiilaa said, the picture is edited. The horse probably just got a bath for pictures, based on how its staged and clean all over. That's why it's shiny.. Mine looks the same way after a bath.
Awe I was kind of hoping he was real so maybe I could find one some day :p Oh well I'll stick to the black horses :)
There are buckskins that are that light. Their bodies look almost grey. Like this one:

There is a legitimate satin gene that exists in rabbits that makes their hair shafts hollow, so they appear to glisten with incredible shine. This is where the myth of a satin gene in horses originates. I don't even know of any research there may currently be going on over it. It's just a myth people bring up whenever an overly shiny horse is posted.
