Do bays have dorsal stripes?

So I was taking a look at Jinxx earlier and I noticed he had a bit of a dorsal stripe coming from his tail and it looked liked d
Own his back. So I was wondering if bays can have dorsal stripes? I've personally never heard or seen one have one before.

A bay dun will have a dorsal stripe but a true bay will not. They can have a line called countershading but it will not be as pronounced as a true dun dorsal stripe and ususally it doesn't go completely up the back. My bay gelding has countershading but it doesn't make it all the way to his withers.

True. On Wart, above, you can also see the leg barring that's typical of duns. She also has lacing over her shoulders which doesn't show in the light of these pics, and face masking as well as the dark outlining on her ears and ear barring on the backs of her ears.

Lacing?


Or shoulder stripe? I know it's referred to in a few different ways (shoulder barring, etc) but never heard of it referred to as lacing, since lacing is a different thing. Lol

I said lacing, because it looks kind of lacy over her shoulders, but it's black. I guess it is more correctly called shoulder barring?

Here, you can kind of see it in this pic. The lighting was bad so it's not easy.



This was right after I bought her and she wasn't in very good coat. She's better now but I haven't taken any new pics recently.

Now that she's getting in better coat, her's are showing up. I had never had a dun before her, so am just learning all the neat different markings they can have.
