what color mare and stud would most likely produce a buttermilk buckskin?

I have a perlino mare and sold a light golden buckskin stallion, their foal is a buttermilk buckskin. The same stallion crossed with a bright golden mare had a more golden foal. I think that one parent would likely need to be the lighter color (buttermilk) to have a better chance at getting a buttermilk. Just as breeding a smutty buckskin gives one a higher chance of having smutty buckskin foals. JMO.

The two buckskins that I know of came from a buckskin stallion and the mares were bay and bay pinto. He had a buckskin pinto with a sorrel pinto mare.

Also, what do you mean by buttermilk buckskin? I ask because I have heard some people describe silver buckskins as such.

Here are the different buckskin colours:



Buttermilk Buckskin



Golden Buckskin (Buckeroo)



Smutty Buckskin (Not the best example, but all I could find-some, like this one, look like bays!)



Silver Buckskin (Kyan-Hope you don't mind Liz!)
