I think smoky brown is probably the most common term for the single dilute on brown. On another board we went on and on and ON on what double dilute on brown should be called, and some were just..ew LOL Brownlino? Ack!
Of course, because UCD doesn't look for At ;) Test that smoky brown at Pet DNA and you'll get At? :)Quote:
If you tested a smokey brown, the results from UC Davis would come back no different than a buckskin :)
I'm betting smoky brown will end up being the term used for a brown single dilute...but really curious to know what the double dilute brown will be called. ;)
Brownskin just sounds... ick lol
Buckskin has long been established, well before any knowledge of brown, literally going back to "skin of a buck" as a color
fwiw, i believe my mare is brown.... or maybe seal brown..... she has a golden "tone" to her darkness :)
i love this color and hope my baby-to- be is her color :)
If she is chestnut where does the black mane & tail come from?Quote:
Do you know for sure she's brown? Was she tested black based or have a black based foal out of a chestnut sire? Or a homozygous black parent?
She looks like she could easily be chestnut to me. IMO
My mare is the same as mbms colour wise :)
She is what I consider a Brown/Seal Brown
This is what she looks like clipped up
This horse is 100% chestnut. Notice the black mane and tail
Same chestnut base color, just with the added cream gene to make here palomino
This is my brown mare. Notice her brown muzzle and area around her eyes. She also has gold around her girth area.
