Question Is my Bay Roan also a dun......?

He has a clear dorsal stripe from tail to mane, but no zebra stripes on his legs......on second thought I don.t think this butt pic shows it very well though, ill post a better one later.

Would like to see more photos, but fairly sure he isn't a dun. Dun doesn't just cause primitive markings such as a dorsal and leg barring - it is a dilute gene. His coat is not diluted at all, which says he isn't dun to me.

I've seen other pictures of him from your other threads and he isn't a dun. His coat color would be more yellowy if he was. The dorsal stripe he has is caused by countershading.

Wild Bay-variation of Bay colouring
Roan is well..roan, lol.
But, basically Bay Roan, Wild Bay Roan is just a more "detailed" description.

Doesn't look wild bay to me. He has black hocks and knees. Plain bay roan, no dun.

Nope, no dun in your horse. It's not uncommon for horses to have a very mild dorsal stripe known as counter shading, but on true dun horses it typically appears as a very defined stripe that is maybe an inch thick. They also need to have some of the other markings associated with a dun horse, such as "webbing" on the face, black tips on the ears, and of course leg barring.
