He may not be 100% half and half. I mean if one of his parents is say, 3/4 TB, 1/4 QH, maybe she just bought him as a part TB, rather than saying he's 1/8 QH. Because a QH easily could be dun. Just an idea. :)

He looks like a buckskin with dun factor to me. Do you know what colour his parents are?

I don't think he's a dunskin. He's more orangey than golden. I still say just dun.

But it would definitely help if you knew anything about his parents or grandparents.

I agree with some of the others. He is definitely dun...on the dunskin... I don't know. I don't think he is dunskin because the the coloring just doesn't seem right to be that. If you know the parents color that would greatly help. Because if there is not a parent with a dilute color like Palomino, Buckskin, Perlino, or Cremello. I can see all the indications of dun though so I am sure he is at least that! I have to say ... he is a very handsome boy!!!! The DNA testing is a good route if you don't know the dam and sire and is not very expensive. Good luck with your new horse and congratulations! He is a very pretty horse.

Here is the website of a Dunskin stallion. You can see he is more of a yellower (creamier) color with the dun factor. If you scroll down to the body shots you can see some better fuller pictures. Hope this helps.

With the first mention of a Dunskin I didn't know what it referred to, but looking at the link of the Dunskin Stallion ,FormulaOne I now understand the term. The OP's horse, Peanut could be a Dunskin. He has a dorsal stripe.

Here is a picture of the POA I bought for my Grandkids. She is POA, because she has the striped hoofs, the sclera of her eyes show and her nose is mottled as well as under her tail. She just had no spots on her rump or anywhere else.

She is a Dun, because she didn't have the black mane or tail or black on her legs. The coloring on her legs is called varnishing.

In the picture of the POA that's my sister and her Grandson on her. The Dalmation colored dog is one we did have. The bottom picture is one of me and my QH. I put both pictures together to scan them for my photo album site.

A dorsal stripe does not a dun make. Non duns can and do have dorsals. They are normally referred to as counter shading, but they can and do mimic a true dun dorsal very well.

This part makes no sense. If she has no dun characteristics she was/is not a dun.

The first picture looks to be a buttermilk buckskin. From that picture, I can't see any dun factors. Do you have any others? Or any information on her parents? If one of her parents was a dun, we could more easily determine if she is a buckskin or a dunskin.
