Registered as a Buckskin?

Hi! I'm new, I have been cruising the threads, and this one interests me. I have 3 horses...one of which is a 2yr old filly. She is registered as a Buckskin, but I don't see it. Any input? Her registered name is RR Okies Passiondoll. We call her Babydoll. Thanks!

She's a brown based buckskin. Definitely. A lot of people won't use that term though, so that is why she is listed as buckskin. None of the registries have brown buckskin as an option yet either.

And I can definitely see the cream, in her "soft" parts. I love brown buckskins!

Brown and brown based colours do seem to be the most "changeable" from season to season in my experience. I love watching the changes!

I would consider her a sooty buckskin.. most registries don't have that as an option... if you seriously want to figure it out there are tests you can have done.

This is another thing a lot of people will say. Now, this is just my theory, so don't take it as law... however, I think that most "sooty buckskins" would test as brown based buckskin if tested, if not all of them. I am seriously starting to wonder if sooty exists in black based horses, or if brown is just far more prevalent than we have always thought...

From my understanding there is no such thing as a brown based horse, genetically speaking. I do realize that there are a lot of horses that "look" brown but when speaking of base coat color genes there is either red based or black based. I have done quite a bit of research into coat color genetics just for personal informational purposes and I have yet to come across any reference to a brown based horse, but if you can point me to an article somewhere that I can read on the subject I would appreciate learning more about it.

Brown isn't a base colour. It's a black base with a brown gene.

Hmm.. never heard of that either. Not saying you are wrong but I haven't found anything about a "brown gene" in any of the research that I have done. Certainly doesn't mean anything though! Lol

Could you point me to somewhere where I can read more about this brown gene you speak of?
