I was hoping for the buckskin confirmation but her not having black legs and a black mane and tail really had me confused.

Mary Ann, I think your filly is very cute and beautiful. I agree that smokey black is probably not it, I have a pony that is smokey black and she looks black. In the summer she gets some brown highlights but she definitely is much darker than your filly.

Congrats on the results! I have to admit, that one had me totally fooled..Just goes to show you cannot judge a book by it's cover.. :-) I bet she'll really change colors thru the seasons and as she matures. I've always wanted to have my black mare tested to see if she carries the creme genetics, I suspect she does, however she's not passed it on to either of her colts so far. I am certain that her dam is a smokey black, she has produced several palomino and buckskin foals and was herself the product of a gray (red bases) and buckskin cross. I love color genetics, I know a very limited bit about it, but it's facinating. Ev

It is interesting and confusing! Just today I was out with the horses and she's gotten alot darker since those pictures were taken. We're in a warm climate so I don't think she's getting a winter coat yet. She's almost looking black now...not much like the typical buckskin but I like her color and am glad I went ahead and had her tested. My husband jokingly said to give him $65 and he would tell me what color she was! He did not understand why it mattered.

Mary Ann,
I think is great that you had her tested. Great information if 1. you are planning on selling her=more value or 2. you keep her and in the future breed her=more knowledge as you plan a foal. I would love to have had that info on my mare before I bred but...they don't test for homozgous grey :-)

E Watkins: Does your mare have amber colored eyes instead of brown? Are her soft under areas a lighter shade of black, almost a browney color?

Those are some traits of smokey black horses. A smokey black has one creme gene, so she may not pass it on, its 50-50 chance.

Mary Ann:

My little filly was born dark. Everyone said she was a bay. She was out of a bay and a buckskin. The only one that thought she was buckskin was the lady who foaled out my mare. She said buckskin from the first minute she was born.

By the time she was about a week old, we were thinking she might just be buckskin, but a dusty buckskin color, which reminded me of a apricot dun shade.

Now, 6 months later, shes starting to roan out all over and seems almost a greyish sand color with some black hairs here and there. Her mother is homozygous for agouti which means that the black on her body is resticted to her points, so who knows what color this little girl will end up to be by the time she shed out her foal coat next spring. I'll try to post a few pictures this weekend to show you how her color has changed.
