Grey dorsal stripe.

I have a rose grey filly, and she has a dorsal stripe...I THINK.
It looks way to crisp to be counter shading, other than the fact she is greying out so that kinda effects it a little.
Only thing is...I know for a fact her dam doesn't have one (she is a grey), and I don't remember her sire all that well, other than the fact he was a red roan. So, I'm guessing that she got it from him, I remember one of his foals being a red dun out of a sorrel mare.

I wouldn't necessarily jump on the dun wagon right away. Grey can cause mimicking of primitive markings. There are a lot of greys that people have thought had dun when they did not because grey put a counter-shading dorsal on.

Do you have any foal pictures of her? Grey can do some funky stuff and leaving false dorsals is one of those funky things.

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.

She was born a chestnut, with dark legs and almost appeared to have leg stripes, and deffinately had a dorsal stripe then too, but it was really hard to see when she shed out to an almost black brown. I don't any really usable baby pictures of her haha:P

I'm going to say not dun in that case. Being grey, and born with 'adult' colour like that, what with the dark legs and all, I would expect her to be born more of a dun colour than chestnut.

I have a gelding greying very similarly to your filly, I will have to agree that she is just experiencing a phase of the grey process. I've had mine for 4 months and he's gone through a lot of changes even in this short period of time.

As a foal, note he is an adult color just like your filly was.


Day I looked at him.


Current.


Isn't it cool that we'll have a different colored horse every year? :)
