    What's this?

    Hey everyone! I'm posting from my phone so ill give you some pics in the next post. That's how my phone rolls lol

    Anyways, there's a Peruvian paso at the barn now with curious markings. At first I thought he was chestnut but he has a dorsal stripe (or counter shading), leg barring and some striping on his back. Any input would be appriciated!

    Pics in the next post :)

    That is a red dun.

    Chestnut+dun...e/e...D/d or...D/D is he's homozygous for the Dan gene.

    Just a dark red dun rather than the more typically seen bright orangy-colored ones.

    Pretty dark dun!!! Has lots of dun factor! Guard hairs, shoulder strip and leg baring and of course a nice dorsal.

    Thanks! What threw me off was all the striping on his back. You can see the thick dark stripes on his shoulder but there are lighter stripes that go down his back. I've never seen it before.

    That's shoulder barring. Very typical dun marking.
