OQ?

Not sure if that was a question or a guess on the colour..but..
Silver dapple is perhaps whatyou call it? We just say silver.. it's the gene that makes the mane and tail on a black or brown horse white (if a black horse has white mane and tail :P) Not sure if it's the same that's called flaxen on chestnuts or what.. >_> But I know that icelandics xome in a lot of silver colors.
So if dun can mix with a silver gene, like this article said.. and does that on a brown or bay base-colour.. it should look like Sólon..O_o

I would say silver. And definitely dun on a bay base. I'm thinking possibly cream as well, for a silver buckskin dun. Looks a lot like the silver buckskin mini I had, except she wasn't dun so she didn't have the primitive markings.

Honestly I'd say Dunalino or Silver Dunskin. But one of the parents would HAVE to have the creme gene. I don't suppose you have the papers do you? If he has them. Because while silver and dun can be pretty tricky to detect in some cases and silver doesn't show up on chestnuts it can look like it skips a generation. Creme really isn't that tricky though, so its usually on papers. This is not a black based horse, I can say that with a lot of confidence. Either bay or chestnut. Though I'm leaning more towards the bay side with Silver Dunskin. Dunalinos don't usually have dark primitive markings.

So I'm going with silver Dunskin

Sorry to double post but I found a Silver Dunskin Icelandic stud online:

Looks about right, yours is just lighter.

His papers/passport are sent to the icelandics association for owner-registration :) I only have half the pedigree tho, but he's born on iceland so he's a pure icelandic (they only have icelandics there).

Silver is very possible, I havn't seen his parents but silver is kinda normal there so..
I think he's silver+dun+brown/bay.. after my reading yesternight I figured his mane and tail has too much white to say buckskin/dunskin? Is there anything in his colour that say that he has the buckskin in him, because I think that silver+brown+dun seems right..
_______

Yeah, I know it's not a black base since he's notgray, but they didn't have pictures on any brownish base + silver+dun, so.. :P

Why does this matter? Just curiosity? (not meant in a nasty way)

His mane has too much white to be dunskin, but it is pretty much perfect for silver dunskin. Silver effects black hair and turns it light, and in some instinces practically white. I stand by silver dunskin. His body shade is perfect for buckskin. It's not the appropriate color to be brown/bay silver, it's too creme. Brown/bay silvers are reddish, because silver just effects the black. And he's not a black silver, he is not greyish hued as they are. I have to say silver dunskin, because of his body shade. Dunalino is a possibility, but I lean toward dunskin because of the darkness of the primitive markings.

Sunny: I want to know what colour he is and what to call it :) Just curiosity and well..it's good to know? :P

Upsidedown: What's exactly a buckskin?
I know a dunskin is dun+buckskin(?) but what makes a buckskin?
