Hard to tell on the inside leg but it is the same. Second pic you can see how high and solid black is back to front and not concentrated in any one area.

Basically front knee and back of the hock is black but back is red fading to cream line and there is a cream feather at the fetlock. Neither is dun or "wild dun" but the legs are like some pics I have seen of those. Edited to clarify the bottom pic is bay Aa and color is absolutely solid black which is what I have always seen. He was the first I have ever seen with the off black and basically the joints are colored but not the cannon bone it's more red.
    Which company did you go through? I've only gone through UC Davis before, and they didn't ask for any pictures, so I'm curious to know about others!
