Bay, brown or red dun?

What color do you think she is? Father is buckskin. Mother is bay dun.





Here she was as a baby with her mom.





Not sure if she is a red dun or bay dun. She seems to have quite a bit of red in her mane.

She looks red dun to me, but I am no expert.

I think red dun.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I really didn't think she was a brown dun, but was hoping more for a bay dun over a red dun. Guess we will see this fall.

Thanks LR for the compliment!!

The color around her eyes looks to be shedding out pretty similar to momma in my opinion - she's cute!

Wouldn't she have to be either a buckskin, palomino or smoky black if her daddy is a buckskin? As for dun I'm not an expert...is it just a modifier like silver or is it like the creme gene and grey where it is determinant?
Love learning about this stuff there is so much to learn!

This breeding produced at least one bay dun and one bay. Waiting to see what the foal turns into.

The breeder said she must have gotten tangled into some fence wire.
