Yep Brown + cream. There is no real "name" for it yet hence why I call it brownskin. >.< Same idea as buckskin black + some sort of agouti + cream

I agree either sooty buckskin or brownskin. Either way, she is absolutely stunning. You certainly have a wonderful eye for horseflesh, PD.

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:

Wow! *blush* thanks!

The first horse is cute! & does looks sooty buckskin,but is really light in face & around eyes,made me think about the horse possibly greying. I have a 3 yr old Grey that you can see is definitely greying in his face but his body is generally pretty dark not alot of obvious greying there yet but had really lighten up in the summer & his dapples are golden & an overall gold hue to him looking at him today I thought he looked almost like a sooty buckskin,but know he definitely isn't as he came from red based parents.sire grey{sorrel base} dam sorrel. My friend had a sooty buckskin mare was light features in her face like that too.She was 4 when she sold her overseas.Her buckskin coloring a big selling point.Well the next spring she shed out a grey Much to my friends surprise & of course the new owner...
The second horse looks more like a dun than buckskin to me.

I kind of think brownskin for the first one too. A girl I know has a gelding the exact same colour. Until this summer and have had some education in colours, I would have assumed just a super sooty buckskin, but based on where he's lighter and where your horse is, I'd say they're both brownskins. I have no idea what my friend's gelding's parents are though, to be sure.
