Huh... I'm just trying to figure out my horse's color. Chestnut, with some unusual markings, including one leg with primitive stripes and a faint dorsal stripe that goes from withers through tail. The "one leg" thing is a bit strange... lol.

Thanks guys! Beautiful horses! I LOVE the prominence of the coloring in lilruffian! All the horses are gorgeous!

Some counter shading can be quite strong. Also a dun does not have to have leg and shoulder markings to be a dun. Only true requirement is the dorsal.

Some red duns can have incredibly dark, even black LOOKING dorsals.




Whole body shot

I had a red dun pony mare that I sold a month or so ago. She had some really bold marking though she was in her winter woolies. I bet she would have had some beautiful markings come summer. :)

Your mare isn't red dun, she is bay dun - on a wild bay base from the looks.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Your horse is a red dun.
Sharpie very pretty like the shine to the coat in the summer pic.
Riddles - how long ago was your horse body clipped? what does she/he look like not clipped?

He's not body clipped. That photo was taken in the summer.
