The breed comes in any colour, so that's no help :P
The auktion paper said ''silver yellow'', I don't know how right they were concidering the circumstanses, but silver isn't unlikely (pretty common in the breed as far as I've seen) and as far as I know, dun is also a regular icelndic colour? So it's not impossible that they've mixed, right?
I read this:
Her color is the result of a black base coat diluted by both a dun dilute gene, and a silver dapple dilute gene. *The silver dapple gene diluted the mane and tail to silver, but the dorsal stripe and other dun markings appear to remain relatively undiluted on this mare. The body has been diluted by both the silver dapple gene and the dun gene, causing a pale body coat. |

Or is he just a light red dun?
Well.. see for yourselves :) What do you think?
He has a light, thin stripe down the back and some leg markings, but fairly light legs, and the center of the mane and tail are dark. It's not very visible on the tail tho since it has so much light/white on it.
I guess I get insecure about if its just a red dun because he's so light, and the dark in the mane and tail doesn't look red at all. (except the tip of the tail but I suspect that's bleached by..stuff) and then the silver-thing in the papers suggests that one of his parents were silver, or something. I dunno..
The both black-silver-duns they had pictures on looks like him except gray.. http://duncentralstation.com/DunOthe...y-sdgrulla.jpg this one lacks a lot of the dark in the mane.. http://duncentralstation.com/DunOthe...moke-KMSHA.jpg but this one has more of it and it's the same type of genes, so maybe Sólon is something in between? And then brown/chestnut/red/whatever brownish colour instead of black as a base?
Am I just making stuff extra difficult? Can he be just a light red dun or some other normal colour?
