A horse is described as being black if the black pigment is general throughout the body coat, limbs, mane and tail and no pattern other than white markings is present.

In a Buckskin horse the body coat ranges from a dark mousey to a light yellowish colour, resulting from dilution of one of the basic colours. A horse is said to be brown if the body coat is uniformly brown but the mane, tail and lower parts of the legs are black.
