    What colour is this??

    Hi there - I'm new!

    I'm glad that I found this forum 'cause I have a colour question.

    I'm curious if this is a Bay Dun, a Buckskin Dun or Sooty or ... ?

    Thanks for any opinions!!!
    (pic was taken last year as weanling colt but you'll see the leg barring, ear tip, shoulder shadowing and on his face he has cobwebbing and a full dorsal right to the skin, as well as light guard hairs on tail.) He's just starting to blow his winter coat and marking are all present! *YAY*

    Edit to add: He is a bit darker than what the picutre shows, you can see that the colour in this photo is pretty washed out.

    How BEAUTIFUL! Absolutely stunning! I do believe this is a Dun or dunskin horse. The "tiger" stripes aren't common but I love them!

    I don't know as much as I would like to about duns, they tend to be a bit rare over here. However, I think your boy is a bay dun with sooty.

    They are part of the dun factor markings. They are usually present in most duns, but not usually this distinct

    I know, I'm totally not familiar with them but we do have a lot of Buckskins out here but I have never seen a horse with such primitive, strong markings has he has. And he was a THROW-AWAY!!! Bought for $50 from the meat man :( Even his little hernia is gone ... he's the package deal; good spirit, level head, smart and super sweet!
    I can't wait to see his colour this year once he's completely blown out.
    Bay Dun ... Sooty? Bay Dun WITH Sooty or a Sooty Dun .. is there even such a thing? LOL

    Bay dun with sooty.

    Sooty isn't a colour in itself, it affects other colours. So all colours can be 'with sooty' but a horse can't just be sooty on it's own :)

    I agree with bay dun. Holy zebra stripes! I have never seen so many on a horse before.
