    This is the best pic I have in my phone that shows her back. I will try to get a better one tonight when I get off work.

    These 3 are of the colt's back

    Does the colt have any zebra striping? I feel like I don't see any dun in either parent. Has the mare been exposed to any other studs?

    Perhaps it's just counter shading and he's actually just palomino. Some palomino foals look reddish when they're young.

    That colt has shedded his foal coat .. he's dun, imo.

    I'm going with the stallion .. dunalino.

    The colt doesn't have any striping anywhere else. He was the only stud who she could have been exposed to as far as I know (I didn't own her when she was bred). Both parents have dun but its at least 3 or 4 horses down in their bloodlines, so I know that it's possible. Obviously, I mean he's a dun colt, but I guess I won't ever know exactly how he turned out the color he is based on his parents. Either way I still love him haha

    I have heard I can have her papers sent in and 10 of his tail hairs to do a DNA test to verify if he is even the stud? Is this correct?

    I too don't really see dun in either mom or dad, but I personally don't think his dorsal stripe would look that prominent or look the same through all the pictures if it was just sooty/countershading. It looks the same in the picture where he is very young, and the last one. Maybe it's just me, but I see the shoulder stripe and other dun factors here. I think he is no doubt red-based dun.

    Maybe it is possible that it was a different daddy.

    Is the stallion's sire or dam dun?

    Go look through the pictures of my horse Dusty. If he gets bleached out, you can barely see any of his stripes. You would never guess he was a dun.

    What are my options on finding out actual color? Is it blood tests that I send in or have done at the vet? How does all of that work?
