ponyboy - not sure what you are talking about "shine".
Poptartshop - actually buckskins can have a stripe going down their back - its call countershading and can easily be confused with a real dorsal. Countershading is an effect of the smutty/sooty gene.
Oh - not sure if the OP wants to do this, but I know some people shaved their duns' dorsals down to the skin - just one spot of it. The stripe went down to the skin, but the stripes that were due to countershading did not go to the skin. I do not know if this is true for all, but it might be.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
