Do you perhaps have a better picture of his entire topline?

He looks like a Bay Dun Roan to me.

Very pretty.

He looks a little too yellow to me to be a bay dun.Does anyone else remember when people would classify "yellow duns"? Off topic, but I remember several people back in the day who had "yellow duns"

From my understanding bay dun and yellow dun are the same thing? Zebra dun is the same thing as well...(Someone please correct me if im wrong)

My reasoning for bay dun is the dorsal that I believe im seeing, his general coloring. Its quite gold looking but too "dark" for the usual bucksking coloring. And his face, the black around his eyes. Oh, and is the 2nd to last picture you just posted...^^^, you can see zebra striping on the inside of his back left leg.

He is for sure black based. Chesnut/red doesnt fit him.

Yellow dun is probably a buckskin dun.

Zebra dun, lineback dun, and the like all mean bay dun. I think yellow dun referred to a buckskin dun before it was recognized as dun on buckskin.

What's the gelding's name? At first glance, I would guess bay dun roan too, mostly based on the barring that appears to be on his front leg. But that would mean trying to track down where dun would have been thrown into the mix. His sire easily could have been a red dun roan, but mistakenly registered.
