One more - Can horses be homozygous for dun? Or is it just 50%/50% to not-dun mares?

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
Is the only thing that came to mind when I read this

Yes they can be if both parents carry the dun gene however unlike double dilutes you can not tell by looking.

>>>> You have been breeding horse for awhile but yet you don't know about genetics and dominate traits?

Seriously, if a breeder is not breeding a "color breed" or a registry which requires/dis-allows certain colors, there is not much need to know horse color genetics, besides curiosity. I know several "big time" responsible breeders who know little to nothing about color genetics because they are breeding for a specfic type or talent in their horse,s and color matters not one bit-- whatever color it comes out is fine, as long as it has potential to do what its bred for.

(I on the other hand am obsessed with color genetics and want to figure out every possibility even if it doesn't affect registerability of my horses--- and my breed of choice's major identifying colors/patterns have no available genetic tests and aren't even totally understood...... go figure, LOL)

Green Broke
Thank you East to west(hey, not to hijack but I posted some way better pictures of satin on the thread we were discussing her on) I wanted to say that, but since I am not a breeder I figured I would be discounted...
