Counter shading is a very interesting thing. I hadn't heard of it till now.

So, in order to be papered buckskin assoc, does counter shading count on the dun stripe? (hope that makes sense.)

If the horse doesn't have any other dun markings (like leg barring or shoulder barring), then it would just be a buckskin with a dorsal stripe caused by countershading. In order to be a dun, it must have other markings too. Is that what you're asking?

Sort of. That part I know. But in order to be registered in the color association, does counter shading count? Like if your dun has the prim markings, but the dorsal stripe is counter shading, does it count? Does that even happen?

A dun will always have a dorsal stripe, not countershading. That registry is for duns and buckskins, so buckskin is the only one of the acceptable colors that may or may not have a dorsal stripe (though if it were just a buckskin, not a dunskin, it would only be countershading).

Sorry. This is weird for me to try to put into words. It makes sense in my head.
