BUCKSKINS

The buckskin pattern has usually black that covers the head, neck, and shoulders in a cape effect with black on the topside of the tail, with the remainder of the body being a lighter color (brown/tan/creme/etc.) and the face and legs sporting coordinating stripes. Buckskin is a very common pattern in Nigerians and is easily passed on. There are several different shades of buckskin, but the pattern remains the same.
