How to get a Buckskin out of a Red Dun?

I'm hypothetically thinking about breeding my mare who from what I've read is a Red Dun. I thought she was Chestnut/Sorrel but she has a dorsal stripe. Any way what color stud should I breed her to to get the best chance of a Buckskin/Dun foal? (They've always been my favorite)

My best advice to you? Buy the color you want, don't try and breed for it. Your mare might just have some countershading.

A Perlino would be the only chance youd get to get a buckskin.

Buy it. There is no way to guarantee that you would get the color you want without knowing exactly what your mare is. And even then you are better off buying something already on the ground.

I think you could try a cremello, but nothing is guaranteed.

^ A cremello to a chestnut (by your discription I think she's chestnut with countersading) would only give you palomino.

The sire would have to supply the cream and black, and either would have to supply the agouti, to make buckskin. A perlino that is homozygous black and agouti would guarentee it.

Hmm okay If you guys wanna see a pic of her to help with color just look under my horses.
(I'll get a good pic of her stripe tomorrow to hopefully help)

She looks to be chestnut to me, but I'm not very experienced.

Other than a dorsal, does your mare exhibit any other dun markings?

I believe there is also a test for the dun gene, you could always have her tested to be sure.
