Well that is embarrassing, all these years I've had it in my head that agouti caused black points on a red based horse as opposed to minimizing black to those points!

Now off to go read up on this until the world makes sense again...

Nokota - IMO he's a bay dun.

Lol yea I'm not sure Gremmy.
And I'd agree 100% if it werent for all the red and the minimal black on the back legs

The little black means nothing. It just means that agouti is restricting the black further down the legs then it typically does.

Okay. The red?

A horse that is genetically red, isn't going to have the black mane and tail. He's not red dun. He's Bay+Dun= Bay Dun

Add onto the variation that naturally occurs in all horse colours (different shades within the same colour, such as lower black in this case), dun also is a dilution. It is not uncommon for dark points on dun to be a more chocolate colour than black.

This site shows a lot of kigers --> including this gal below which is identified as bay dun. Check out how light her legs are - much like your guys.

And I think this page could be helpful for you -->

A grulla is a black horse with one cream gene, a perlino is with two, Your horse appears to be a grulla with the dun factors, the dun gene gives the horse a some or all of the "dun factors" which are ear stripes, zebra stripes, leg barring, the black lines across their withers and the dorsal stripe, the guard hairs on the tail and white hairs on mane, it is not considered a dun unless it has a dorsal nor if the dorsal fades in the summer, a dun must always have a dorsal no matter if red or black or bay. A buckskin is a bay with the cream gene, but there can also be a dun-skin and that is a buckskin that have 'dun's' in their parent history and they express the dun gene through the "dun factors"....clear as mud right???
