The sire was born a dun. His dorsal stripe faded and now he is like a buckskin dun. I uploade a picture of the sire.

The colt is bay dun the colt has dark ear tips and I would say not dunskin. Because dunskins have two dilution genes (cream and dun) they are very light and creamy. Here is mine when he was a 4 month old.

This is the color of your colt. This horse (the sire) is not a buckskin dun. He is a bay dun or bay + dun dilution. No cream gene for him to be a buckskin. A horse just can't turn into a buckskin they are born that way or not, he is a very typical bay dun horse.


Bay dun like I said is Bay + Dun
Buckskin is Bay + Cream
Buckskin Dun Bay + Dun + Cream

Looks like a bay dun to me, little too dark to be a buckskin dun in my opinion :)

I know that colt is a dun! I just don't see how the dad is considered a bay dun? I thought bays were more red and darker then this stallion.

The dun gene lightens the horse's base coat- that is why a red dun is lighter than a typical sorrel, and in the sire's case, why his body color would be lighter/faded looking compared to a typical bay.

Dun is a dilution gene which can act on any base color. So take for instance your foal's dam. She is a red dun which a sorrel/chestnut + Dun. It dilutes the base color kinda like sorrel/chestnut + cream equals palomino or bay + cream equals buckskin. That why your foals sire has that lighter golden color it diluted the bay base. Make sense? If your foals sire was buckskin and dun he would be much lighter than that.
