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)
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.
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.
