If he's got a dorsal stripe, he's a dun. Buckskins don't have a dorsal stripe, so it sounds like he is a dun.

Other colours apart from dun can have a dorsal caused by countershading. The dorsal can look exactly like a dun dorsal.

Dorsal stripe, side view of legs, back view of legs, wither/neck, face shot, and back of his ears are all places dun markings show up.

Do these help at all?
