Cobwebbing can be quite distinct, as those that Smrobs posted are. Other horses display just a darkening of colour, while some don't have it at all. Like most of the other dun factor markings, it can be hard to see, and may not be there in some cases.

Now that is pretty cool looking......the forehead pics.........


Yes THANKS EVERYONE for all of the nice compliments on my guy. He has always been the subject of conversation when it comes to his coloring. The very first coggins paper I have on him that came with him when I picked him up in 2003 has him marked as a yellow dun. Haha! Everyone that sees him tries to figure it out. I love the opinions.

I must say that out of all of the mixed mutt horses I've ever owned, he is by far the most unique in color.

You can, however, see a distinct dorsal. Poseidon was referring to the OP's horse when she said there was no dun factor.
I'd disagree that the horse I posted has a clear dorsal. I'd say it's actually quite fuzzy and light colored, not at all the "drawn on with a marker" look that most duns exhibit. If you go to the link in his name, you can see that he has no leg or shoulder barring, either (and he has enough color on both of those areas that it would show up if it were going to).

I'm not saying that the OP's horse is definitely a dun palomino (clearly he has the sooty gene... I don't think anyone's debating that one). I'm just saying that it's not outside the realm of possibilities and that if she really wanted to know, she'd have to do genetic testing.

Sooty can mimic dun factors, but it will look faded and smudged, not very prominent. Also, I don't think sooty is caused by a specific gene, and there isn't a gene named for sooty or smutty.

Horses with the dun gene will have
A dorsal stripe
Leg barring
A dark face mask
Shoulder stripe or shadow
Bi-colored (or frosting) mane- as seen on fjords, but not always as prominent.
Frosting or 'guard hairs' in the tail
Cobwebbing on the forehead
Black tipped ears

Not all will show up on every horse, and they may not be very noticeable.

You're correct, AFAIK they haven't identified the gene or combination of genes that results in sooty/smutty.

About the face cobwebbing - It's not really common, to tell you the truth, to be that distinct. It's usually just a darkening, if there at all. Rowdy, the little Dun I know, has no cobwebbing, but his legs are dark zebra :p And he has his little dorsal stripe :p

This is our true Dunalino stallion he is a golden palomino but has shadowing, leg bars and a dorsal stripe. We get about 85% color he has produced many Dun's, Palomino and Dunalino's.

Interestingly, everything I can find on your stallion lists him as a red dun. Have you got any other pictures of him?

AQHA and I had rounds I wanted him reg as a palomino but they would NOT do it they insisted he was a RED DUN!!! He is a palomino and he has all the dun factor and has produced it quite reliably.
