Oh how interesting!!
I wrote the below post this morning but it has been a crazy day and I couldn’t post until now.
It’s funny SunnyMeade because you posted some of the same pictures I found and thought…hmmmm.
While my boy’s tail is darker, his mane looks very similar to the top and bottom horse that you posted pics of.
I’m going to work on getting some better shots of it tomorrow if it isn’t raining.
Thank you verona1016 for your input. Your horse has very interesting eyes as well and the green one is the same color as the green in mine.
Anyway, here is I was thinking this morning when I wrote this:
I went poking around just a bit on champagne, and I am see quite a few pictures out there that look like Digby as being labeled “Champagne Buckskin” or Champagne Amber Buckskin“ and even a few called “Silver Buckskin.” (Not saying everything people label their animal as is technically correct, just what I found)
So....I’m good and confused now.
One think I have noticed is not many buckskins have eyes like Dig, they all seem to be normal dark or deep/dark amber colored.
So, is he (based upon looks) really a buckskin? Or is it correct to think that he is a buckskin with the expression of something else (champagne) that affected his eyes?
How might the splash and/or frame mentioned earlier play into things?
