I've never heard the term "burnt buckskin" or "burnt dun" used. Most all registries use either Black Dun or Grulla when describing the colour. It may be a term some artists use to be more descriptive, but not one used commonly/at all in the real horse world, as far as I'm aware.

:giggle: Its very commonly used here (Im in Aussieland) Was just curious as to whether this was taken from the proper name of Black dun :\

Ohh that would be why then. It's not used at all up here in the US, however I've known Aussieland to use a lot of terms that we don't (like "Taffy" for bay/black silver). The UK also uses different terminology to describe the colours too (for example, they rarely use the terms "Tobiano" or "Overo", instead just labelling every pinto "Piebald" or "Skewbald"). It's just cultural difference, I suppose, the genetics are still the same :)
