Thanks! Sure, I will try to get pictures of his back tonight. Of course, I have a million pictures of him and none of them clearly show his stripe!

Ok, I swear he wants to make a liar out of me! I took pictures of his back tonight and of course you can barely see his stripe.

He is getting his winter coat in right now so the stripe is hiding a bit. I noticed when he sheds out or grows a coat, the stripe hides for a while. It is normally very dark and noticeable when he has his full winter coat or full summer coat.

Oh well...what can ya do! Lol Here are the pictures anyway, I know it's most likely countershading and he is just smokey brown but you never know

Definitely counter shading even just from past pictures. I think any of our color experts will determine 100% NOT dun. He also has no leg barring.

Yes, I figured he wasn't dun. There were just some ladies that seemed to think that he may have a dun gene or something because of his colour and the stripe and the morgan in him. I just thought I would get some more opinions on here because they wouldn't believe me when I said he wasn't dun and there was no way he COULD be dun!

I'm pretty sure he is smokey brown, he just has really cool highlights and a stripe that make him unique :)

Well, the experts on here put my Luna as a smoky brownskin, and they do look pretty similar colour-wise, up to and including the countershading being much more pronounced in winter...

I think smokey brown /brown buckskin might be my new favorite color. SO pretty!

And the results are in! Drumroll please......!!

The report for Simon said "Test specific for the seal brown version/allele ‘At’ of Agouti. One dose of ‘At’ detected. The horse can be either A/At, or At/a".

I think I am going to go ahead and do the test for agouti as well. The person from the lab told me if he is At/a then it would be justified to call him smokey brown :)

Thoughts? Should I go ahead and test for the agouti? Or is this enough info to say he is smokey brown for certain so I can save my money :p lol

Wow, they won't even tell you if the other allele is 'a' or not without another test? They're certainly milking the fact that they are the only ones with a test for At, aren't they?

Personally, with the test positive for At and his appearance, I'd think it's enough to say he's probably At/a and therefore smoky brown.

He sure has some pretty dapples. His color looks almost grulla. He is a cute horse.
