We need the color gurus on here. Can't he be buckskin and dun? They are two different things and def has both possibilities.

His dorsal stripe isn't dark. 3 of his 4 legs are black though I don't know how well you can see it in the pics. I am sure they will show once he loses the baby hair. One is white. Its hard to tell how much is white but I didn't see any black on that leg. I don't think he has any other white on him. Except his lip looks like maybe he will have a small spot.
Since 1987 the AQHA has classified a horse with a dorsal stripe as a dun and a horse without the dorsal stripe as a buckskin. So with that being said he would have to be a dun. I am so not a color person.

Many foals are born with a dorsal stripe, the ones that aren't dun will grow out of it.

^dorsal stripe, as well as zebra and shoulder barring, not a dun. She will shed out black and lose all the primitive markings that are exhibited on duns

Your colt looks like he is possibly dunskin, only way to know for sure if you don't want to wait for coat color changes is to have coat color tests done with some hairs with roots intact

I think my daughter has decided on bandit. I have nixed a few names. She can name him but there are some names I refuse to call a horse.
I was worried about her losing weight after he was born. But you can barely see her ribs. When I bought her one of the pictures given to me showed her really skinny with a baby on her side. I really hate that.
Baby and mama are doing really good. He found the water and likes to play in it. He is eating good. Starting to make mama chase him.
I have about a month to go before I start watching for baby two. She looks bigger than dunny was when she foaled. But she doesn't look miserable like dunny did.

I'm thinking he may just be dun (bay dun), but not completely desided, this is my buckskin dun as a baby (for comparison),

His dorsal was pretty light when he was born to the point I would have assumed he was just buckskin, however his mom tested homozygous for dun, so it was a given (and it's nice and black now).

Your baby is darker, which may just mean darker buckskin, but I'm just not desided yet, you'll have to post pics as he grows!

Dad is without a doubt a buckskin! Could be dun to, but it isn't obvious from that pic.

Yours looks more like a buttermilk buckskin and this little guy looks more golden. But he looks like he will shed out lighter. Will be fun to watch him grow.

Please excuse the trash. Believe it or not this is the culprit. She will tear a trash bag to shreds. We had picked up stuff from all over the pasture and I forgot to take the bag to the can. We left the bag in the wagon. I forgot the trash can in the yard and she had a large time. That's what we picked up and put into the wagon. The wind blew it everywhere. I have never had a horse tear out trash. She isn't hungry just playing around I guess.
