Couple new pics since he has come home with me.


Guard hairs around tail typical of duns


All the dark dirty looking places on him is his skin showing through the hair. You can see where he has new bitten and scraped up. He was half dead when the precious owner purchase him at auction.

Dunskins will usually have the dappling that the buckskin usually presents, however duns can get dapples as well. I would still say Dun. Also if he had a injury that caused scaring on his dorsal his dorsal might turn white so it wouldnt show like a true dun. Stunning boy though hope to see what he grows up to be!

I think the dorsal will come back as his hair returns. And his coat becomes Healthy again. There is definitely a dorsal there it's just missing some hair but there is definitely a color difference and it's not like my bay colt who has counter shading. I think his coat is about to change some and as it returns it will go back to the chocolate shade it used to be. I'll take a picture of his back tomorrow.

Ok better pictures of dun markings
Leg bars

Little bit of cobwebbing and masking across bridge of nose and cheeks



Dorsal and tail with guard hairs (note: significant hair loss on his back causes the dorsal to look faded)
