My buckskin mare had a gold / honey comb color when I purchased her last August 2008. She was born in MO and sold in May 2008 to a person in SC and then sent to Oklahoma in August 2008 to a sale where I purchased her. The coat color was so beautiful and I was very impressed with the rich dark gold color.
Over the winter her coat lightened, which was expected. However it has stayed a cream buttermilk color instead of turning to the gold / honey color. Pictures are posted in order from August / September 2008 - December 2008 - June 2009. I would like to get that dark coat color again.
Pictures are below.
