Here is a very recent photo of my AQH Sam. You can see a bit of the dorsel fin near the base of his tail. It does go from the withers to the tail set and is very prominent.

His legs do appear to have a variated shading. Is this what the posters on the thread are talking about?

If this works, I will have an indoor shot and outdoor shot (where the red is very prominent.).

Definitely sorrel, on another note; I saw a lady advertising a horse with this exact coloring as a red dun -.- she is sadly mistaken. We have one the same color (although his tail is more flaxen) Example:
This is willy, a sorrel with a flaxen mane and tail:
and this is a red dun:

Although you can't see it in his winter coat, chet has zebra striping on his legs and as you can see in these, face masking.
I hope this helped :)
