Gray modifies any "normal" horse color. So he can be both a buckskin and a gray at the same time.

I don't know enough about Appaloosa color patterns to tell you anything about them or how they interact with regular horse colors.

But I must say that Koda has a lovely butt! He may have the prettiest butt I have ever seen.

A gray has to have at least one gray parent. And a foal born from a gray has a 50% chance of being a gray (unless the parent is homozygous for gray, then they have a 100% chance of inheriting gray).

I researched it a little last year because my gray mare had a foal, and I was wondering what my odds were of him turning gray. He had a 50% chance of being gray, and by golly, he has a sprinkling of white hair, so I think he's got it.

Well if they have registered her as buckskin, then looking at her now, she doesn't look like a bucky. In the foal shots of Koda, you can see his momma looking like a dingy grey colour. Even though she might have rolled in mud, and the lighting looks crappy, her coat just doesn't have a buckskin look to it. Most greys (not all though) tend to go a murky, darker version of their original colour before they head toward the white end. Again, as ND said, her face is also screaming grey at me. Just the general tone, and the way it is dark around her cheeks and jaw, then light over her eyes and down toward her nose make me think she is grey.

Koda is brown going grey in my humble opinion.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
