    Varifying Bucksin ;)

    Ohkay, this is Gunner. Papers say Buckskin, which at first I disagreed with, but after reading thru all the other color posts, I checked his pedigree... His Sire was a Cremello, Dam was a brown... SO then, He is a Buckskin, Correct? Or am I still just WRONG with this? (I usually am hehe) I only didnt think so bc he's noth the color I usually picture being a Buckskin. Oh, & i'm not planning on breeding him, but- this horse was given to me, so I don't know for sure- but I have one colt (came with him) that is a Red Dun & supposedly the other one was a Dun.. but out of A Sorrel & Chestnut? That kinda confuses me haha!
    Thanks Guys ;)

    Actually I would say that he is a brownskin (brown + cream) and not a buckskin (bay + cream).

    ETA that is if he is truly carrying cream, which he has to have if his sire really is a cremello.

    If his sire was a cremello, then he would have the cream gene. He looks more like a brownskin though (brown + cream). You can see it especially in his face, the golden mixed in.

    I don't see dun in him..but do you know what colours his sire's parents are? Dun would be difficult to see on cremello, so he might have gotten it from him..but he really doesn't look like he has has dun in there.

    NdAppy, that would make a little more sense to me bc I just don't see buckskin haha! I never actually was sure that "brownskin" was an accepted color term. I thought buckskin was bay&cream, & I knew the dam was a brown, just figured it went along the same haha. Thank You :)

    Poseidon, I know the sire's dam was a pally, but not sure on the father (just know from

    There is no "correct" term as of right now for brown + cream. I just happened to be in the habit of calling it brownskin

    Bahahaha, well I like it- Its seems (to me atleast) more fitting then buckskin lol. Is that why he is down on his papers as a buckskin? Because there is no term???? Or is that just another (one of the many) registered color mistakes?

    Question, It can still be brown even though his nose doesnt go to light brown? Or is that just something with the creme gene that its blackish?
        08-25-2011, 12:13 AM
    That is probably why he is registered that way as there is no term for it.

    Can we see his pedigree on Allbreed?

    Yeah, sure...
