Just fyi, as far as I know, there is no test to test against all horses to see who their breeding is. you have to have a "Potential sire" and "potential dam" to test against. There is no centralized database for horse genetics.

He looks like a dun to me...

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

He doesn't have a dorsal and does not appear to have any other primitive markings.

No he isn't a dun, dun's look more different. I talked to someone to do with the BLM and they said I could have him DNA tested to see. So I'm not sure.

Yeah, he has a dorsal stripe but it's not defined as that is.

She had a little more than the norm, but she's a pretty textbook dun.

Binion is a pretty text book buckskin. But there are variations, of course.

Well, IMO he looks like a dark buckskin, almost borderline sooty. We had a buckskin colt that was nearly as golden brown as your mustang was and he also had a little bit of white "frosting" in his hair and we did the creme gene test on him and he tested positive for it, so I'm pretty sure that your mustang was a very dark buckskin if he had white hairs mixed in with his mane.
