What colour dun is the mare? Is she red dun or bay dun? Most that are listed as just 'dun' tend to be bay dun. Also, without testing, there is no way to know what agouti genes the sire may or may not carry, since palomino is a red based colour, and agouti only acts on black base.
For what it's worth, to me he looks like a brown horse with a gold spot. I am not sure about the gold spot just appearing, so I will search around and see what I can find. Gold spots are usually that bright palomino colour no matter the ancestry and base colour of the horse, so that isn't what is causing it. I don't think that Stiffler is a 'brownskin' either.
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.
