    He doesn't look like a dun to me. He has a dorsal but no other primitive markings, and his coat is a very rich colour. Dorsals can be caused by countershading as well as dun, so it is not a case of dorsal=dun. As well as that, dun is a dilution gene, which means it causes the body colour of the horse to lighten, usually very significantly. The only ones I have ever seen without huge amount of lightening to the coat still had the flat, dull colour of a dun. This horse does not - he is bright and rich in colour.

    Well, It depends on what the parents would have for genetics, I would suggest you check out this website: Color Calculator
    Its really great. It tells you exactly what you might get!

    Also, on the dun argument, He could possibly be a dun, the first pic of him running, looks edited and brightened, so your not getting his real color, he looks more of a dun in the second one, I see "edged" ears, the dorsal strip in the first one seems pretty solid to be counter shading on a bay, and I can see a hint of striping on the legs, FYI, duns don't always have leg barring, or even dorsal stripes. But I think the ear edging points, IMHO, to a definite dun.

    This guy I have posted is not dun, nor could he possibly be. However, he does show you a very solid, very defined dorsal that is countershading.

    As for duns not having dorsals or leg barring, they ALWAYS have a dorsal, and ALMOST ALWAYS have leg barring. The problem is with people being able to see it. Ear edging is not a dun factor marking - ear tipping is, and the horse posted by the OP does not have ear tips.

    Bay horses can and do have black rimmed ears. It is not considered a form of dun factor.
