    Very hard to say.
    what breed is he/she?
    What are the parents? If that's the dam in the 2nd photo, she is not a red dun (the mare) which would mean the sire would have had to be if the foal is indeed a dun but it's difficult to say at this stage.

    Soft apricot tone and dorsal running all through the tail - a yes to Red dun from me.

    The color's right but the dorsal isn't as strong as I'd expect.

    What color was dad? Mom's chestnut?

    Well, he is red, if that's not a dun dorsal stripe, it would be counter shading. But he makes up for the dark dorsal stripe for the new and unique throat stripe !

    How cute is she?! If dad was dun, then red dun is definitely possible. If not, I'd say she is a neat chestnut.

    My husbands mare is a red dun and as far as I know neither of her parents were dun. But this filly gets a red dun vote from me!

    Dun is a dominant gene, so it cannot be "carried" without being expressed. The most common way for dun to "appear" like this is that one of the parents is misregistered as a buckskin. Another way it can be almost hidden is if the dun carrying parent is a double dilute, or a palomino, which makes it harder to see the dun factor.
