I didn't even know dark buckskin were a thing until she said that and I researched. I was never into the genetics stuff but now I'm super interested in it all! I just never knew anything about it before.  This picture is baby syrups half sister, she was born a few weeks ago. The stallion looks just like this little fillys mare (I got permission from the owner to post this!)

Chanda, in looking at this little filly, I'm wondering if she isn't a double dilute, in which case he would throw that cream gene every time.  What do you think?

But I do think this baby is a buckskin, and it's certainly reasonable that mom is a sooty buckskin.  Remember that picture of Tide Creek Augustus, the Welsh Pony stallion who is such a dark "sooty" buckskin, he is often mistaken for a black horse.

I'm not sure.  Palominos are often born with pinkish skin that darkens with age, as do baby blue eyes turn to brown.   This one looks suspiciously like smokey cream, but if mare is palomino and stallion is palomino, that's not possible; but if stallion is smokey cream, then it is possible.   So many possibilities.

That's what I was thinking, that the stallion is not palomino, but smokey cream.  I wonder if we could get a picture of the stallion posted?  I was looking at her eyes and the skin around her eyes, and her muzzle skin, thinking this was not just palomino skin.

The mare is palomino for sure, but this baby looks more like a smokey cream, than palomino.  Too much dilute color going on, I think in that skin.  Oh well, time will tell, but perhaps we could get a picture of the sire -- in natural coat and color -- I don't know if they show him, but so often they darken areas when showing, so hoping we could get an "natural" picture of him.

With minis, color genetics can make your head spin, cause if a color exists in horses it seems minis can have (very few exceptions), and they can have them all at the same time, even.

Ok so I found the picture I snapped of him from like 100 feet away in February so he's got his thick coat. In the picture you can't even tell he has pinto or tabiano (I don't know what is the proper term) but in real life you can. His owner just messaged that she'd take a new summer picture. I'm not sure if she shows him. She does show her mares though. Sorry that it's an awful picture haha as soon as she send the new one I'll post it :)

I do see what you guys are saying with the pink muzzle and eyes on that filly, I never noticed that before when I looked at it.

No, you can see his pinto patterning.

But with those dark lips and eyes, I guess I'll revert to a palomino, since there is no dilution in his eye color or muzzle color.
