I know it doesn’t REALLY matter but I’m just so curious at what color my boy Dakota is so if you have any ideas please let me know. I added two pictures of his parents just in case that will help you genetically speculate. Thanks for any information you can give me.

Likely silver buckskin. The silver gene dilutes black pigment to various shades from flaxen to a chocolately color. They come in many shades, but looks silver buckskin to me.
Here are my two silver buckskins (not related).

Any unclipped pictures? I am also in the silver buckskin boat.
One of these is right when we brought him home never clipped in his life, the other is a picture of him with a fairly long coat. But as much as I’ve looked into it I am thinking that he is buckskin = bay base + cream & silver dilution
