    I agree with others. If you're breeding for color, don't breed.

    Look for a nicely bred, athletic built foal in the ground with parents that prove the babies lineage! The only 100% guarantee for a true buckskin.

    NOTE: I bred my sorrel mare to a homozygous black and white stallion. I read the paperwork. You know what I got? A bay and white foal! I don't care about the color, but it's an example!

    Exactly. It's cool to have a piece of paper but it's one step up from "best in show" at the local pet fair.

    I had a buckskin mare. I didn't need a piece of paper to tell me she was a buckskin mare.

    The OP didn't ask for advice on whether or not he should breed or why he should specifically want a buckskin or what the results might or might not be - he simply asked if anyone knew of a registered (presumably with some breed registry) stallion of that colour.

    thank you. That is all o wanted. The confirmation of my mare is irrelevant to the knowledge of a buckskin stud there for explaining my lack of replies to anyone's post.

    Buckskin And Dun Are Not The Same Thing | The Equinest

    Just throwing this out there. Buckskin are bay horses with one cream gene, dun horses are bay horses with a dun gene, you can have a bay horse with both one cream + dun that's called a "dunskin" or "buckskin dun"

    Let me be bluntly obvious. IMHO the op shouldn't breed her mare.
    I don't like to sound rude but it seems like she doesn't have enough Knowledge on genes and conformation or the risks of breeding horses. Also seems they are unwilling to take advice.

    MOST casual horse owners ought not breed their horses, as we all well know. Most don't have the knowledge of blending genetics (which OP has shown) or the experience to train a young horse, or the finances to support and train multiple horses. Heck, even a lot of the professional breeders need sound spankings regarding what they are breeding. As the OPs horse is relatively young, I can't see that she's had a lot of time to prove herself athletically, and without stunning confOrmation, she hasn't "earned" the right to reproduce.

    I am also wondering why the OP is so determined to have a registered stud, since the OP's mare is herself a grade mare. If one is registering to a color registry, it hardly matters if the stud is registered or not, or am I mistaken in that regard?

    Sadly, since no one's opinions are going to change the OPs mind as to whether or not he/she should join the ranks of backyard breeders, the only thing I can add to the conversation is that color ought to be the last consideration in breeding. Pick a stud that excels where your mare falls short, and hope that the foal gets the best of both parents. I can't help but remember a Craigslist ad (think it was Craigslist) I once read in which the owner of a two or three-year-old was selling the colt because it came out the wrong color and she was so disappointed that she just didn't work with it. So the colt was left to its own devices and was barely halter-broke at the time of advertising. A throw-away, bred only for color.

    And a lot of these people are the ones that protest the slaughter industry.

    The reason I brought up color was because the OP didn't seem to realize that there is only a *chance* at a buckskin foal and also the OP is saying one color and describing another which leads to the - which color do you actually want? Which has not been answered.

    The conformation of the mare is extremely relevant so experienced people can post some ideas for complimentary studs, isn't that easier than having people just posting any horse of that color left and right?

    No yogiwick because the OP doesn't care about the confo just the color.... To us yes it would be easire but for someone who is looking for specific color they don't tend to care about much else. And being that the mare is so young/stud fee so low I wouldn't hesitate to assume he/she doens't care about much more then color.

    But goodluck for your mare/foals sake I hope you do a TON of research before you pick a stud and breed. There is much more to it then a pretty color
