Question

This is his sire:

His dame was a Haflinger. So I'm assuming chestnut, flaxen mane and tail.

This is his sire's sire:
CDF Frankie
And his sire's dame:
Zola


I'm assuming he is bay. I'm thinking there is no way he could be buckskin but he has barring on his legs (hard to see in pics) and a darker strip going down his back, which bays could have? I know he is thin. We just got him two days ago and something went wrong with the person who was holding him for the person we got him from. Sorry about the crappy pictures, not turning him out at all until the vet checks him over so he has to stay in the barn. I'm almost certain he has lice. He's rubbed most of his mane off.

This was taken a few days before we went and got him.


This is at our place, yesterday. Day after we brought him home.

Bay with countershading causing a false dorsal. As his health improves, his colour will too, as the coat is generally the first thing to suffer when a horse is malnourished.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the info. He's on the road to picking his weight back up.

He looks like a bay to me.
Buckskin is caused by the creme gene. The primitive type markings are from the dun gene, which is entirely different from Buckskin. Your horse is not carrying creme or dun, so his "dorsal stripe" is just a bit of sooty countershading.

That's what I was thinking. The person who was holding him was calling him a buckskin and I told her he was a bay so I wanted to be sure I was right.

I agree on the bay with countershading and would like to add that it is entirely possible for him to be carrying a Pangare gene as well since momma was a haffie. That would certainly explain the significant lightness of his flanks and just above his hocks.
Mealy / Pangare Modifier

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/

He is full sister to my filly who carries pangare (from what hf says lol). I'll try and get better pictures of him tomorrow or Monday. Here is his sister:

Let him out for a brief period of time today.
I think he is already looking better. Thanks to 24/7 hay and water with a little bit of pellets and weight supplements.
