Okay, all you color gurus . This is one of my new customer horses and I am trying to figure out what color to call him. He is a Shetland/QH cross and, before you ask, I have no idea what colors his parents are. I apologize for the blurry photos but I didn't realize until later that there was a fingerprint on my lens. I can get better ones if you need me to.
And, I don't know if it will have any bearing, but he does have what appears to be a fairly dark dorsal stripe. Whether it comes from some form of dun factor or if it's just from countershading or some other gene is anybody's guess.
