Anyone else have a Dunalino?

I've got one - he's chocolate with dark legs/points with a vanilla colored mane and tail upon first spring shedding. He also has a dorsal stripe and mottled skin. By the end of the summer, he fades out to a more bleached yellow.

Was wondering if anyone else has one or knows of someone who has one? It sure is an interesting color combo!!

Ok - whew! I was buried alive in cd backups for about an hour trying to find some pictures that would show his markings and color changing ability LOL!

Pic 1 is when I got him as a yearling - the rest are at different ages in between with the last photo of him from this past March as a 9 yr old, showing his color changing ability from late winter to late summer.

He turns blond and hairy in the winter and sheds out to chocolate with a blond mane and tail with dark legs and dorsal stripe in the spring. As it gets warmer, he turns dappled then fades out to darker regular palomino color by August.

I don't know of anyone else who has a Dunalino - it would be fun to see others' photos......

PIC HEAVY

I don't see a dunalino... He just looks like a sooty palomino to me. A dunalino would have a dorsal stripe at all times, so the "stripe" you're seeing is most likely countershading caused by the sooty, which is common.

Agreed with Po. I'm not seeing any dun factor at all.

Just put my horses out with a really cute dunalino .. I'll try to get pics this week. He is DEFINITELY dunalino .. dorsal strip, zebra stripes, the whole thing.

My old gelding that died in '94 was a dunalino (registered pali) .. I'll see if I can conjure up a pic or two of him this week also..

He's a sooty palomino, some people call it lemonsilla.

Many dun palominos don't show their dun markings very strongly and can only be identified with genetic testing (or producing dun offspring with a non-dun... or having a parent that is known to be homozygous for dun...)

It seems as if I was reading another thread on here about a possible dunalino. A few other people were saying that the dorsal stripe is very hard to see on them. Perhaps a few people who are saying this is not a dunalino will post photos of one with a clear dorsal so we know what it should look like?

Except this gelding has zero dun markings in any of the pictures..

An actual dunalino:
