I wish I could find a good one of her legs-- ill have to go through all the horsey pics when I visit grandma. :) Definitely will post the pics.

If it helps any, she was up there in her 20's and it seemed like when she got around 17-18 the white come out, but before it wasnt there.. could old age cause this?

And as far as bay dun and buckskin: A bay dun is a "flatter" color than buckskin. They might be shiny, like the one above, but the color is still a duller shade. A buckskin is gold and will have a gold-tinted shine to them.

Buckskins also may have dorsal stripes caused by countershading, but will not have leg barring unless they are also dun, making them a dunskin.

Do some reading from this website. It will help. Morgan Colors- Your Information Station for Morgan Color Genetics and Color History

Bucks wont have the darker face, right?

I've seen a 'buckskin' (no dorsal stripe) with leg barring-- what causes that? Just the color in general? Can duns not have the dorsal, or is that a must?

Most buckskins are a uniform color, yes.

And duns must have a dorsal stripe, it is one of te traits of the gene.

If ya google red dun this horse pops up.. Isnt this one a chestnut?

Actually, that mare is a grulla. She's referenced here often when members ask about their Appy's color, which can be difficult because Appy genes can skew base colors. I'm on my phone an I don't have the picture of her as a foal to show that she is a grulla.
