    This is my aunties little black & white mare.

    The other day I was looking her over, and it occured to me she has "coffee" coloured hair in her ears. She doesnt look buckskin... but... what do you think? Sunburnt, or cream?

    Thats what I am wondering too!
    She is infoal to a Pally, so if it comes out double dilute we'll have our answer LOL

    The color around her eyes looks buckskin, we have a very dark bucky and she is this colour also.

    Will have to talk my aunty into DNA'ing her! Or if she has a double dilute foal we will know either way lol :D

    I am pretty sure her grandsire is SC Bucks Supreme (Black Buckskin) so it is possible genetically. I will have to check her pedigree and see if either of her parents could have been dilute :)

    This is our Dark Buckskin, 'Dusty' His dam is Perlino so no questions regarding the cream gene. He has the cream ears too...

    DNA test... I know a colt who had lighter coloured hair in his ears and a black coat so there was thought he was a smoky black (dilute parent). Turns out he is just weird as he doesn't have the cream gene LOL.
