Buckskin or Dun?
Looking at my fresh new filly it perplexes me that I cannot figure out her color. But before I can really rule out her being a red dun, I have to rule out the possibility of her sire being a dun. I have heard him referred to as both, and registration papers say he's a buckskin. My filly's sire, MCH Buddy, has one 'buckskin' parent, and one 'grey' parent. (Knowing these are from lines that carry some Lp, 'grey' could very well be appy coloring doing its duty.) My filly's dam, Tenakee, is chestnut. She does have counter shading on her back, but I have no suspicion of her being the dun in this family.
So anyone who has a good eye, I would appreciate any advice on what these colors are that I am seeing. I will post a few pictures of the sire, MCH Buddy, then my filly, Takala, and a few of Takala's paternal half-siblings.
I grouped the pictures in 2s. First two are Buddy, then Takala, then very-dun-looking half-brother Lucky, then a full brother to Takala.
