Buckskin [edit]

 

Buckskin is a hair color of horses and it resembles tanned deerskin. The Buckskin color occurs as a result of the cream dilution gene which acts on a bay horse. However, Buckskin horse can occur in an number of different breeds.The horse has a tan or gold coat and they also have black points on their mane, tail and lower legs. 

Buckskin horses are easily confused with dun-colored horses, which have the dun dilution gene, not the cream gene. Duns always have primitive markings which sometimes include shoulder blade stripes, dorsal stripes, zebra stripes on legs and webbing. However, it is possible for a horse to carry both dilution genes; these are called "buckskin duns" or sometimes "dunskins."

Also, bay horses without any dun gene may have a faint dorsal stripe, which sometimes is darkened in a buckskin without a dun gene being present. Additional primitive striping beyond just a dorsal stripe is a sure sign of the dun gene.

As previously mentioned a Bucksin horse can occur in any number of different breeds from the wild mustang to the domestic pet horse, however, at least one parent must be from a breed that carries the dilution gene, and not all breeds do so. 

Since 1963, the American Buckskin Registry Association has been keeping track of horses with this coat color, and although Buckskin is sometimes classified as a color breed, due to its genetic makeup that depends on having one, not two copies of the dilution allele, it cannot ever be a consistently true-breeding trait.
