Your horse is such a neat interesting horse. The reason I like greys is because their coat changes from season to season, and its always so fun to see. Don't want to hijack the thread, but I'm curious if people are calling horses that are really brownskin roans sooty buckskins, what does a true genetically tested sooty buckskin look like next to a brownskin roan? Curious as I'm really into colors, and like to learn all I can.

I do think that smokey browns are very often called sooty buckskin.

if her dam is chestnut her father cannot be bay. He carries the cream gene, and is buckskin or palomino (or smoky black) or possibly double cream

Dad had to carry the Cream gene and roan.

Sorrel vs chestnut are the same thing genetically.
