Yes, travelinscout, those are bay duns and your foal will look similar to them.

what's the difference between that and buckskin...the line? Because these don't have leg stripes. I'm curious to know...

A buckskin is a bay + cream. They CAN have a dorsal stripe, but it's just called countershading and is basically like when you overlap when writing with a marker and that spot becomes darker. Buckskins are also a very gold colour and creamier.

A "dun" is technically a bay + dun. They have dun factors that include a very defined dorsal stripe, zebra barring on legs, shoulder barring on the withers and neck and cobwebbing on the face. The colour is kind of a "dingier" shade of buckskin. It's not as golden and is kind of..flatter?

You can have a buckskin + dun. It's the golden shade with dun factors.

If you want to tell them apart fast, just look at their legs. A dun will have zebra barring, a buckskin won't.

I'll go try to find one of the many threads discussing the differences

Yay, thanks- can't wait to read it! I love all this genetic stuff :)

I can't find it. :/ I had a whole rant in another thread with pictures. Le sigh.

It might help to just Google some pictures or creep around the forum. My mare is a buckskin, MN Tigerstripe's Soda (Skip's Gin Fizz) is a dun, and if you google Hollywood Dun It, he's a dunskin (buckskin + dun).

Yup, I have pics up of Soda in several places...

In the first pic in this thread, I think your mare looks in rough shape. Of course foaling takes a lot, but not that much - I can count every rib. Look at that pic again, and then answer.

Alex it is normal for a mare who has just foaled to look like that - it takes a few days for the muscles to come back to where they should be. She has good weight on her, but her sagging baby belly is pulling the skin taught over her ribs. If you look at photos taken by the OP a few days later, she is actually fine :)

The later photos look better, but look through the breeding section, I spent 2 hours doing that tonight and the mares do not look like this.

Added to that the OP claims she can see no ribs. Really?
