Going to look at this colt tomorrow. She says he is a dunskin, but to me he looks like just a buckskin with some counter shading. I've never owned a dun horse so im not really familiar with their markings. The colt is around 8-10 months old. I do not have any info on his parents the current owner purchased him at an auction. What do you guys think?
I noticed the leg baring though I'm bad when it comes to duns. I'm really excited to go get him he ought to be a pretty horse when he is all grown up.
The biggest difference between a dun/dunskin and a buckskin: Leg barring. Some buckskins have very convincing countershading, but a buckskin will never have leg barring. Duns will always have leg barring.
I'm was planing on buying him regardless of dun or not. Isn't he just too cute ? Hopefully he has potential to be an eventer and barrel race with me. But if not he ought to be a nice lil horse some day.
He has a dorsal he is losing hair and it faded he is patchy all over not sure why I think I has something to do with his previous traumatic injuries. It's an inch wide and goes from his withers to his tail. The former owner said it was dark a month ago and faded as he has lost hair from scabs. Posted via Mobile Device
