    The reason I keep pushing bay dun is the fact that people will use "dun" to name the color of both red duns and bay duns calling them both "dun" which is not correct.

    CLaPorte .. some folks don't have the knowledge base, or are just going off of what someone else knows because that's just how it's "always been" ..

    There are many many many people who are clueless about the actual genetic color of their horses, call them by the wrong color name, and are perfectly happy with it ..

    Exactly. But "dun" is a completely outdated term, just like overo.

    With genetic research now, they are able to distinguish the base color (bay, red, black) and then add the word dun.

    You can call any horse with primitive markings "dun" no matter what the base coat is. But that's an extreme over-generalization to what dun is.

    Okay people im not being ignorant. I do know what I am talking about, and the more I think about it, the more I am thinking maybe bay dun is right. But the person who I get the info from has more than 30 years experience around horses. And lobo dun is also a distuingished colour of dun, its basically just a dark dun. And the one horse we had there was a lobo.. and one of our grey mares that we used to have also foaled a lobo who greyed out

    CLaPorte, I know what ignorant means. Lol

    I was referring to the ability to address someone, even in frustration, without calling names..

    Nakota - the point is that genetic testing has come sooooooooooo far in 30 years. 30 years of experience means NOTHING if you don't keep up with the PRESENT.

    What was just Dun 30 years ago has now been pared down to red dun, bay dun, yellow dun, whatever now .. it's much more detailed.

    You would learn TONS from these girls.... really.

    Okay. I'm tired of arguing/disagreeing. And I'm not calling anyone names, I only did to that one person because they were very rude. And as I found out, I got a msg saying that both my comment and theirs were removed, and they were temporarily blocked from the site because of their comment.
    And I'm sorry, I'm very frustrated/mad about a few things right now

    Lobo dun is not a color. It is a name slapped on a shade to make that horse seem some super rare color when it is not.
