So what's the difference between palomino and dunalino? Or I guess the question should be how do you tell the difference between countershading and a dorsal stripe? Does countershading show up on palomino?
There's a stallion I know that's being advertised as dunalino and I'm just curious. I can't find any dun in his pedigree but I've been wrong before!
Actually, I believe the stallion would have to have a dun PARENT... as far as I'm aware it cannot be several generations back and then pop up. I may be wrong.
If there is no dun in either of his parents I would say they have a palomino with some dun-like countershading. (I have one of those "sneaky" palominos... in the early spring he gets a mask, dorsal stripe and sometimes zebra stripes... once summer hits they fade, and through the winter the only marker left is a faded dorsal stripe.)
