    I don't know anything about color genetics, but two things: I would get rid of the italics, and I would not put Wikipedia in your "bibliography." Anyone can post anything on Wikipedia, and is therefore an innapropriate resource.

    I've seen at least one bay roan called strawberry. And yes, red roan for both. To me, those words (not the roan part of course lol) mean nothing to me since I don't know what the person actually means without seeing the horse. Just like tri-color ;)

    CheyAut - I think you're thinking of red roan? That's the one I hate - strawberry roan is always usually chestnut, but some people use red roan (for a bay) interchangably for both colors.

    It's the same as using the terms piebald, skewbald and/or overo for example - there is nothing specifically genetic linked to any of those terms so they're completely misleading (or tri-color, I HATE TRI-COLOR). It's always best to say this is a "buckskin roan tobiano splashed white" instead of this is a "tri-colored mustard tovero". See what I mean?

    In answer to your question though, no, nobody has thought up a quirky name for buckskin or buckskin roan yet.

    And in NO country is "colors/colours" spelled "coulours".
    Yeah maybe I will change that then, I have done it the other way (nickname as title and actual in blurb)

    yeah you have a good point about Wikipedia but I only really used it for pictures. Apparently the moderators on the site are much more strict that they used to be.
