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.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
