The dorsal also doesn't continue into the tail like it would if it were caused by dun.

It looks like he has striping on the legs. Would that be caused by something else?

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

You mean the markings on the lower legs? That's not dun caused striping. Dun causes stripes above the knees and hocks.

Thanks guys! Haha, yeah I did just get him. He was a rescue, so he's a little older, 7 and I'm training him (please don't call me crazy, we've already gotten the saddle on and sat on him.) I've had him for four weeks and I've been trying my hardest to figure out his color! But just you guys know, his legs aren't stripy.. They're leopard print! (It's a joke, they're spotty though.)

The leg markings are causing by clusters of sooty. Sooty also causing mane/tail to be silver and possibly some black hairs too.

Sooty palomino. They change over the years too so expect what you see this year will not be the same as next. The spots spread.....If I get permission I'll post a pic of my pals sire that is now a chocolate with even darker spots plus the dapples. Right now Honey is just developing random "leopard" spots or what my mechanic husband refers to as grease marks.

Could it be like a flaxen chestnut color?

This horse is chestnut based but has the obvious coat coloring diluted by cream. A palomino genetically is (chestnut+cream). Even with the sooty the golden tone of cream is there.
