Sooty Buckskin or Dunskin??



She has a faint strip down her back and tri-colored mane and tail like my Dun mini.

Do you know anything about her parents? What colours are they, that would be the easiest way to decide.

Id say she's a buckskin. Just based on the fact she looks identical to a mare we used to have but her mom was a palomino, and her dad was a buckskin.

Her Father is a Palomino Foxtrotter and her Mother is a Belgian not sure of color.

Actually, imo, she's a smokey brown/brownskin.

It's really hard to tell from just the one picture. Is there any way you could get some more detailed pictures, especially clear ones of her legs and her butt/back from directly behind her so that the dorsal stripe is clearly visible?

Just going from the single picture, though? I would say that she's a brownskin/smokey brown. It's very similar to buckskin, just with a different version of the Agouti (the gene that restricts black points and dilutes the body...causes bay and brown. Bay is "A" and brown is "At"...I think). Typically, brownskins are a lot darker with supercharged dapples as compared to regular buckskins.

I still think she is brownskin. Brown based horses often have a dorsal, as brown likes dark hair along the topline. Dun tends to have a more muted shade to it, rather than a rich hue like your girl.

From what I can tell she is a Dun. Check for leg stripping. She also has Dapples. Very nice! To be a dun one of her parents must be carrying the dun gene. Do you know if its in her lines?

Also, unless the sire was a palomino dun, I'm almost positive dun does not exist in Belgians - in fact, I do believe they're almost solely "base" colors - black and chestnut with potential for modifiers such as agouti and grey only. I would agree with sooty brownskin/buckskin.
