Yeah. That was my thought. No way a true black and chestnut sired a dilute.

Also, OP - as a few others have pointed out, your foal is a brown based buckskin. The dorsal is caused by foal countershading, which is being intensified by brown's habit of making foals have dark toplines.

Baha. According to Abby's papers, her dam was sired by a black and a sorrel. Turns out that her grandsire, great-grandsire, great-great-grandsire, and great-great-great-granddam are all smoky blacks, with the cream coming from a palomino. Neat!

Clearly the black carried a cream gene, some things can be carried down w/out showing (like bay on chestnut, and cream on black, and anything under gray), others can't (like dun and gray).

Yeah, I found pics of her sire. There seems to be a golden/yellow tinge to his pics, but his muzzle looks almost like dark brown instead of grey or black. This is him and the filly.

Yeah... But like I said there seems to be a tinge to his pics. And he is registered as black.

If he's registered black, that's the most incorrect registration I've ever seen. Tinge or not, that horse is not black. O_O

The buckskin? Maybe I'm not looking at the right one.
