    Does he have a true dorsal? I have never seen a dun that dark.

    Apparently that black-looking horse in the blog post had the dun factor and he's a lot darker than my horse. I've looked for a dorsal stripe before but my horse is too dark to tell for sure. Although I have noticed that when the rest of him turns a sort of golden color in the summer (he tends to bleach golden, not red like most browns), his spine stays really dark. He also has that dark face mask so common in duns. Still, I think only a genetics test would tell for sure.

    If he was dun, I wouldn't expect him to get so dark in the winter. Are you going to test? We love results almost as much as we love pictures.....


    ETA: Looking at the other pics you have added, I am confident that he is indeed a BAB. Congrats!

    I dunno... check out the stallions on this page, especially "Armani". They both apparently have the dun factor. Armani looks even more like a BAB than my horse does.

    Stallions - Eclipse Ranch

    Also, that little Sorraia mustang in the blog post is a lot darker than my horse and he's also a dun factor. If you can find another explanation for my horse's skin wrinkling that happens to look exactly like the skin wrinkling in dun factor horses, I might change my mind. I've been searching for an answer to this for years so good luck.

    I might test sometime in the future if I happen to come across some extra cash after paying my horse's board and farrier bills. ;)

    I would love to see an actual DNA test done on Armani if they think he is dun. He has no dun factor markings at all - no dorsal, no leg or shoulder barring, no ear tips and no face mask. If you compare him to their other stallion, Maverick, you can clearly see that the second is a diluted colour, and Armani is not.

    Dun is a dilute - meaning that it makes the original colour of the horse lighter.

    Is Victor da mule a BAB?

    Victor visited from next door (across the creek), early one Sunday morning. My husband woke me and said that "a small brown horse" had just rushed past the bathroom window into Sienna's paddock. When I got out there I saw Victor licking Sienna's feedbin and looking very badassed indeed.

Unfortunately I couldnt ride her much since she has a loose shoe, so we only walked and done a little trotting just in the paddock & she was an angel considering she hadnt been ridden for about a month :) she is indeed badass, and im pretty sure she's brown... unless im mistaken? :o im aware of the big belly, if I do end up owning her we will have to burn off some of that fat :P
    Good luck with your new addition, looks like a lovely girl!

    I've got a particular kind of BAB horse. He's a BLM mustang gelding and here is his coat in the winter...


    In the summer...


    And lately he's been developing this funny brindle-like pattern over the hotter months...


    I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the rippling on his skin due to his severe fly allergies. Don't worry, he's been checked out by a vet and is perfectly healthy. I keep his allergies under control.

    Also, look at the nifty color underneath when I clip his winter coat!
    Gonna ignore the rest of your posts and just say nice BAB you have there

    No. You should probably get rid of him. I will PM you my address.

    Browns are very BA indeed! I LOVE them, especially my friends horse Chance, I don't have any pictures of him :( But he is defiantly one of those way more than just a brown, BAB :)

    Potential BAB?

    Although I've been told he is black, I believe Hugo is BAB. Am I delusional?

    Photographic proof:
