Do buckskins change colour?
Hi all, my first post YAY! Im looking at a yearling welsh d on sunday, shes advertised as buckskin / chocolate dun, in the photo tho she looks very dark (almost black) i was just wondering if she will ever get lighter? or stay dark? Her sire is cremello not sure about dam xx
If you could post photos it would be a lot easier to tell :)

It is possible for some horses to change shades. For example: I once owned a Palomino who, after one winter, shed out Golden orange that summer from being a pale yellow the previous summers.
She is Smokey Black. If she were dun you'd still be able to see,even if faint, darker dorsal stripe
EDIT: searches for her mother bring up "BRYNMEILLION DION Black Filly." This is a Welsh Sale book Horse #212
That doesn't look like any buckskin that I've seen. Maybe they put up the wrong picture in the add?
Bucksin is a color that resembles shades of tanned deerskin.
Here's what I've known to be a buckskin:
To answer your question, horses will change color or shades of color with the change of seasons. Some will loose their color and become gray or white over time. But I don't think the horse you are asking about will lighten up to a buckskin color. I could be wrong.
sometimes black horses are born a grulla-like color and change to black.
Smokey/Chocolate Buckskin is Creme (Cr) on Brown (At) The follow horse is (Ata,Ee,Crc) Chocolate Buckin
I'm not one to get that technical with the colors. I can kind of see the bucksin in the pic you posted, but to me that horse is still just a brown horse. A very nice looking (brown) horse.:-)
In all honesty the horse in the ad looks black. Don't know her pedigree so not going to speculate if she could be smokey black or not, but gut feeling is that she is just plain old black.
