Red Dun Pictures? Dorsal Stripe?

Does anyone have pictures of true red-dun horses? I'm particularly interested in their dorsal stripes - I've researched and learned that their stripes are not black, as in most duns... but I'm not sure how prominent they are in red dun horses? And, do the dorsal stripes go all the way from neck to tail in all cases?

I have some really good pictures of my red dun Curly. Subbing so I will post them when I get on my computer. Leg barring is very prominent, dorsal stripe with wither shading, his dorsal goes all the way down his tail.

His shade varies from season to season. And just like many horses, shading varies depending on the horse...as well as season, and diet. Some red duns are very prominent with their markings, while others...not so much.

Check out our horse in my profile (Acey). She has the primitive dun strips on her legs and down her spine.

Really only black and bay duns have black or near-black dorsal stripes. Any other color, red included, usually just has a darker shade compared to the rest of their body. Most red duns have a chestnut or liver chestnut dorsal stripe.

Red stripe from mane down tail, leg bars, shoulder marks and even some cobwebbing (little stripes) on the forehead under the forelock. Red duns are easy- genetically just a sorrel horse plus dun.

Yeah my Dunskin doesn't have a black dorsal it's more like a darker tan buckskin color.

Red Duns will always have red dorsal strips as they do not carry black. Where Duns can have either red or black.
