As well as the dorsal, the dun horse should display a lighter colour on the body than the one in the OP. Dun is a dilution gene, and does more than create primitive markings.

First off...chill. No need to get defensive over a simple conversation. I feel that you should reread the posts as well as the OP asked several questions. And I was simply pointing out the fact that horses with dorsals are not all duns.

That depends on what you consider a dorsal. If you are lumping in counter shading into the dorsal then you are correct. However if you are not then it is not a correct statement. If a horse has a true dorsal it is a dun horse.

While this is completely true, and yes, I am agreeing with you here, there are instances of countershading creating what appears to be a true dorsal. Usually we assume false dorsals are not as defined, not as narrow or other such things.

Check out some of these countershading dorsals though lol. I love how genes seem to go out of their way to make our heads spin

Yep, my statement was about people lumping in countershading with dun dorsals.

The link Chiilla posted is the same link I posted on the second page.

I was told I bought a red dun QH. His pedigree states dun and his lineage carries the dun gene.

He has a dorsal. But he is a beautiful reddish gold with red mane and tail. His red main and tail has some gold especially at the base. He is redder than any horse I have seen.

How red can a red dun be?

I'm on my iPad, can't upload photos.

To define Dun via AQHA it states duns can be yellow or gold with Black or Brown mane, and tail and a dorsal stripe which is clearly defined. May have zebra striping and traverse lines over withers. They have an excellent color chart for anyone interested. It can be found at

Hope this is helpful. If the link doesnt work simply type in AQHA Color chart in Google.
