Based on all the pics, I am confident he is a brown based buckskin.

I think smutty buckskin!

Definitely, DEFINITELY buckskin. On a dun, the dorsal stripe is narrower and sharper, and does not disappear.

I agree with Chiilaa - brown-based buckskin, which is why he appears so dark and sooty.

I agree with the brown based buckskin. I do not think he is a dun. I suppose he could be greying out but by those pics, I doubt it.

I ahve to ask, what color are his eyes? I can't tell from the photos, but he's very similar in color and shading to my mare, who is an amber champagne- bay based with a champagne gene. Many folks think she's buckskin, but her color test from UC Davis shows there is NO cream in her at all- funny enough, both her parents were grey- her mother was an amber champagne with the grey modifier.

Delacy I assume you are referring to champagne having green, hazel or amber eyes, and not the blue eye that your girl has? Because her blue eye is being caused by splash or frame. Did you get her tested for LWO at the same time?

I agree that he is some form of 'skin (I have never really differentiated between buckskin and brownskin). I doubt that he carries the dun gene, that dorsal stripe is likely just countershading.

Regardless though, he is a very good looking boy, in more ways than his color. He's going to grow up to be quite the stunner.
