Plus that photo looks like it was kinda washed out...if I adjusted the contrast in mine I could make Sandie look that shade too!

I would call that a buttermilk buckskin as well. It is just a light buckskin. My neighbor's buckskin is almost white like that in the summer, but darker in the winter.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

Love the examples! Yeah it must have just been the photo... hmm.. I suppose cows have more "colors" or different types then horses??? Or is this breed of cows also buttermilk... You don't have to answer, as obviously cows are way different then horses, maybe I just have a weird way of thinking...:)

I have a feeling that the above horse has dun, too. What do you guys think is causing the frosting?

...on a second thought, maybe no dun... but something has got to be causing it, right? OR MAYBE I'm just being ridiculous with myself

It's pretty common for buckskins to have frosting.

Not a dun because there are no signs of any dun markings. And the only duns I've seen that light have been Fjords. Many buckskins have frosting.
