thanks for the help. I guess it will just be a mystery as to how he turned out that way.

And to answer an earlier question, you do not use blood. You pull about 30 tail hairs with roots attached and send them to UC Davis. You'll need to make an account with them and order/pay for the test and send in the paperwork with it.

He could have been registered the wrong color, and there is your Dun factor.
Is the sire of your colt registered and DNA'd? I hope the sire was not owned by the guy where you used to keep your mare..that would be a mess !
