    The pics dont show his colour properly.... but up close & personal he looks like a bayish bucky colour, exactly the same colour i'd describe his sire.

    Thos pics still look bay to me, but a paler bay? So bay with a touch of pangare maybe? I guess he could be a reddish buckskin but doesn't look like it from those pics. What colour is the sire? I don't get to check in that often so I apologise if you've recently been talking about him and his sire!!

    He looks nice whatever the colour and you are obviously doing well with him!

    i saw him upclose on sat and i think hes a bay.

    both parents were bay/brown and white arnt they? neither have dilute, so hes bay?

    I have seen him in person as well and I would say he is bay and white. Definitely not buckskin particularly with the lack of dilute parent!

    Dad is very similar colouring..Possibly abit lighter..

    His breeders always thought he was possibly Bucky..But never DNA'd him..

    Cant now unfortunately cause he no longer with us..

    You took the words right outta my mouth, lol.... his dad did look bucky, although not colour tested he certainly had that sheen to his coat.

    If you really want to know for sure, have him tested for the creme gene :)

    I'd say light bay but a test is the best way to determine what colour he is [but now his sold so hard to do] :)

    Bay from Bay he would be a bay though!
