She would be a dun then - The primitive markings are only linked to dun as far as i'm aware, and she has a dun parent. They can look almost bay except for the markings.

I beleive so. There aren't many pictures online of tested Dunskins, so there isn't a heap of knowledge of what they look like. It is generally beleived though that the combination produces the brighter, more golden and less sooty coat.

You can also get Palomino + Dun and Smoky Black + Dun - If your horse is darker and not as 'golden' then a Smoky Black + Dun is possible.

However the only way to know for sure is to get them tested.

I'm not quite sure exactly how dark you mean, but basically, as long as their genetics say that they're bay + creme + dun, they're a dunskin. If they also have the sooty gene, that would probably make them darker. Here's an example of a dunskin Morgan stallion who is a bit darker:

This almost makes me want to have my mare tested for cream. Not that it really matters but at times I think she might and then in other times not.

The test is only $25, so I'd say go for it, just for curiosity's sake.

I know and that is why I have thought about doing it. Just seems like kind of an who really cares type thing but still would be fun to know. Just to know.

Here are a few pictures showing the different colors she tends to be at times.

Thank you for clarifying that wrong post back there, Wild_spot.

I was sitting here reading and saying, um... buckskins DO have black points. Very much so. That is what makes them a buckskin.
