He's just shedding. Horses always change colors durinh shedding season. I still see regular buckskin.

We have a buckskin at the barn who loses his sooty in winter and it comes back in summer, make his neck laced with black all over. It doesn't appear your horse is dark enough to have sooty though.

My friend's silver buckskin is shedding out and patchy all over with darker coat coming in under the lighter shedding coat.

Hm. He could be brown based. Mine gets sooty when she sheds, but not to the extent that yours is. I also went back to the first pictures in the OP. With how restricted the black is on his nose is similar to the way a non-diluted brown's is.

That's what I was thinking, Poseidon. And those pictures don't properly display just how dark his front is - it is a very reddish color, and I took those pics at like 6 at night. His neck and half of his face are almost as dark as his legs. We all keep joking he is pretending to be brown, lol!

Love the color changing ponies, never know what they are going to turn out to be. My little buckskin filly started out light, went dark and is shedding out again to a beautiful golden color!!!!
