Buckskin: bay + one cream gene

E_  A_ Crcr

The single cream gene does not affect the otherwise-bay horse's black lower legs, mane or tail, though it may add "frosting" to the black mane or tail, and causes the body color to lighten from the red of a bay to the gold of a buckskin.

Cro_Mar9.jpg (48420 bytes)Crobar Folly , owned by Natalie Nelson, is a 1994 AQHA buckskin stallion. Cro had a successful show career with multiple grands & reserves in AQHA competition. He was undefeated in ABRA (buckskin) sanctioned halter classes in his home state of Arizona and stood 3rd at the 1996 ABRA World Show in Open & Amateur Halter Stallions! He returned to he ABRA World and stood 4th in Open Aged Stallions and 6th in Amateur Stallions.  His half brother Blue Eyed Paradise (both sired by Paradise Folly) is denied AQHA registration simply due to being the wrong color, and is every bit as nice as his half brother.

wpeA.jpg (20548 bytes) Semi Sugar Chocolate: She is a very dark buckskin and has light brown eyes. She was born looking black. She produced this palomino foal when bred to a bay paint stallion.  The "sooty" gene can make a buckskin look almost bay, but they will generally still have golden areas.  Her dam is Folly Question, the smoky black QH mare, and her sire is a brown Quarter Horse named Poco High Dollar. She is pictured with Fancy, her Y2K palomino breeding stock filly by our bay tobiano stud BH Gay Snaky Bud. Fancy is a clear gold with amber eyes, white mane and tail.
