He cannot be dun as his sire is not dun either (sire is Connemara, dun DOES NOT EXIST in connemara ponies) and his dam, being a TB, will not have it either. I have seen cream TB's and roan TB's, even frame overo TB's, but NEVER a dun TB.

Buzzby is DEFINITELY roan - you can tell by the white and silver hairs on his body, that completely leave his head and legs alone. Dun has no white or silver hairs, it is just a lighter coat on the body than head and legs.

The above horse is the closest thing I can find on google to Buzzby. It is a sooty buckskin roan, although I'm not sure what's going on with those dark patches (which obviously Buzzy does not have)

The above horse is grulla/grullo. THERE IS NO SIMILARITY with the OP's horse. AT ALL. Not to mention, there is NO POSSIBILITY of dun, as it is not accepted in Connemaras and as far as I know, non-existent in Thoroughbreds.

For some reason sadly I cannot see the first picture.

Yeah it's from a really strange website. Have to upload it to my photobucket, then :)

BEP the dark patches are sooty. What is the website you found this one on?
    08-30-2011, 11:13 AM
I figured they probably were but I don't know enough about sooty to be sure enough to share that opinion.

The site is an Australian site called vichorse.com :) the image itself was found through google, because I don't use vichorse.

Yea when I have a color question I pray you find my thread. I also compare my thought on your answer what I ;love about you is the way you give the reasoning's why you find the horse to be the color you see.

Could he possibly be Gruallo? (sp)
Looks like my Dusty he has always been labeled a dun because he has a dorsal stripe and some bar markings on his leg but he changes color from a light buckskin to a sooty one kinda like people with hazel eyes but he doenst have any roaning going on.
