I would say a honeybay or a dunskin by the looks of it. :) He's adorable!

He's a dun, not golden enough for buckskin dun (dunskin if you prefer). You could have him tested, but I'd put money on dun. Do you know the color of his parents?

No, I just got him from a family friend. All I know is he is a quararab. Hes very goldish red in the sun. Can buckskins have dorsal strips?

Some buckskins (without the dun gene) do have dorsal stripes, but they are a result of countershading. They are never as dark and prominant as one with the dun gene.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Then I feel even more sure he's a dun, pics in the sun may help, but buckskins are not red. No a buckskin will not have a true dorsal stripe, but they can have counter shading that can mimic one.

The shine on him is more golden than red. My buckskin gets dark like that, especially when she sheds out in the spring.

This horse is a dark dunskin too:

Do you have a picture of him standing in sunlight? Those pictures are in shadow, which is making him look darker than I think he actually is.
