So are bay duns. The foal coat color that this foal has is more typically seen in bay duns, hence why I am asking for pictures and/or a name of the sire to know for sure if the sire is a true blue or if he is a miscalled bay/brown roan.

I don't have the sire information yet, pearl was being boarded at a barn before I bought her from my friend, he had a blue roan stud that she got in with, I haven't asked the stud owner about his stud before but from what my friend knows he is a straight through blue roan

Yeah I'm thinking they are dun factor ear tips now. What do you think ND?

That can't necessarily be true because his mother has the exact same ear markings, dark around the edges and more dark area at the tips.

You can see his mothers ears here along with his, the other face pictures show his edges better but either way..

And bay duns also have those ear tips and outlining. That's part and parcel of "dun factor."

Im confused on why you keep calling it the dun factor and refering it to a bay dun... the mare is a grulla dun, so what would make the colt more bay "dun" qualities than his mothers grulla dun qualities... that's the part im not understanding?
