    What would you call this color?

    And this brown vrs. Bay is confusing to me. A lot of what you all are calling brown I always thought was bay. I've always pictured brown as this gelding,

    Or this mare,

    Dumb it down for me? And that makes this filly's dam a...... ?

    Is the first horse's sire a dilute?

    (remaining horses are brown, brown, brown, imo.)

    Tribby's sire is a palomino,

    And here she is freshly hatched,

    My question for her was more or less buckskin or smokey brown?

    The light hair at the base of her tail and slight "roaning" threwout is harder to see on the pictures.

    First horse almost looks grulla to me, but as that's not a possibility with his genetics, I'm going to guess buckskin.

    Agree that last three are brown.

    The foal is a buckskin. No grulla or dun because neither parent carries the gene. Palomino/cream typically dilutes, which is what has happened in this case, causing a buckskin out of a brown/bay.

    IMO the foal is a brownskin/smokey brown.

    I understand the palomino giving the 50/50 at a dilute ;)

    Just curious as to calling her a buckskin or a smokey brown.

    Thanks for opinions!

    If she's brownskin .. then she's both! Right?
