Jumping on the bandwagon, dun as Fjord/fjord cross.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Are you sure about this? I've not come across anything suggesting that the creme gene is present in the Exmoor breed.

He's a cutie--are you sure about the "Dun?" Unless the breed has this color with black points, I'm leaning towards buckskin. My 5 yo QH is a Red Dunn. He has that funny back stripe with some on the shoulders--like a donkey, and I still shake my head at the zebra striping on his forearms! (pretty, but WEIRD!!)

Dun is present in Exmoors. This link is to the Exmoor Pony Association's breed standard, which lists the acceptable colours as 'bay, brown and dun'.

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.

I think the dun here is really cream as the brits still call buckskin dun...

This horse is dun. Being so primitive, I am not surprised about Exmoors having dun gene. If it was cream, we would hear of double dilute Exmoors, which I have never heard of.
