Chiila, what is the phenotypic difference in a brown based buckskin and a bay based? Henny is definitely brown based, he's almost black right now :/ He was such a nice golden color but with this winter coat coming in he looks like a completely different horse. Not trying to threadjack, just curious :)
That's your biggest phenotypical aspect: the color change is drastic. That is very characteristic of browns. Bays and buckskins change color too, but they still look like the same horse. Browns have a whole array of different colors.

Shoot, I meant genotypically. I was distracted and typed the wrong one. ;P Is it the At agouti rather than A? Henny's sire is aa, and I believe his dam is Aa. But is that A an A or an At?

Yep.

They're agouti.
Bay = A
Brown = At
Wild bay = A+ (I have never actually seen a wild bay, but I have seen a wild buckskin. I squee-d a little..)

The three are all extremely similar because they are very slight variations of the same gene, which is hard to explain to people when they're convinced their uber brown horse is bay (mostly because people don't seem to like having a lame brown horse.. Brown is classy, IMO. :P)

His dam would have At, which is testable through Animal Genetics (UC Davis has the A test and A+ does not currently have a test.)

Nice to know :) Both parents have been genetically tested, and the dam is Aa. So apparently that A is At. She's a perlino AQHA mare.

Oooh! That's exciting. I was just thinking about how many perlinos are brown based, actually.

But for everybody watching at home, this is what a wild bay-based buckskin would look like:


There was one at my college. Note how low the black points on the legs are.

This is her. It would be very difficult to distinguish phenotypically whether they were brown based or bay based because of the double dilute. Very interesting, indeed.

ETA: Ohhh, love the wild buckskin -drool-
