Sooty buckskin or something else?
Ok, I think my girl is a sooty buckskin. Her sire was a buckskin, no idea what her mama was. So is she what I think she is, or is she a fading black?

And a winter woolies pic for reference.

So...what color is this gal? This is a horse I broke out last year for a lady. Is she a sooty buckskin too? I thought she was but now she seems more red. Just wondering how varied is the buckskin color.

Looks like she could be my Dusty's twin sister I think everyone decided he was a sooty buckskin.

I also wanted to add my sooty boy changes colors alot thru out each season I referred to him as some one with hazel eyes he go's from a yellow to a gold to a very dirty yellow/brown color.

I am no color expert, but the dilute gene turns bay into buckskin, from what I understand.
So the shade of bay, would determine the shade of buckskin, so the one is maybe more red.
They are beautiful horses... Susan

One mare of mine looks like the first horse, she`s a sooty buckskin, too,.... I guess.....

Actually the first horse has more tones of a brownskin and not a buckskin in my opinion.
