Red dun is a lot different than bay. It's like taking a sorrel horse and throwing dun on them. A diluted red. That's a weird way to put it, but it makes sense in my head...lol. I've always referred to what Fjords and Przewalskis look like when it comes to duns. I don't see dun in this guy, aside from his facial markings and the stripe. He just looks like a unique bay, or some may say he's just brown (apparently my mare is just plain brown according to this forum ...). I think dun is a dilute, and I've never seen one as dark as your guy is. BUT like I said, I am probably wrong. Haha :P
