Dunskin?

So now that my boy has changed from buckskin to grulla to a sooty buckskin... I've now decided that he wants to be a dunskin? I think he's sticking to it also :) He just turned two ( I was told he turned 3) till I got his papers. No one rides him now just sits on him bareback and lead around for a minute or two. He is in a aqward but high faze and its cute :) can't wait for him to finish out he's going to be a nice stocky boy :)

He's a really cute guy! Looks like counter shading though, so I'd say buckskin!

I agree that he looks like a plain old buckskin to me - I'm a sucker for a buckskin :]

No stealing ! Lol. Well he has his dorsal stripe, has molting so techinicallyit could be thrown back and forth but its soo light. It was really dark when he was shedding out. He keeps switching colors on me though lol. He picks and chooses a different color every week ;)

I agree it's just countershading because it's not dominant and he's buckskin. Nice looking boy.

Dorsal stripe doesn't equal dun. He would have at least some leg barring. Why don't you get him color tested? It would be fun to know, I keep thinking of getting Soda tested although I' 99.99999999% certian that he's just a dun. I just like to know things about my boy.

He's a pretty one that's for sure, looks like he's shedding out really nice. If he's ever missing, don't worry he's not in MN ;D

If you post a pic from behind we'd be able to tell you for sure, but I'm betting it's countershading, that would be why it's so light. When they are dun, they are born w/ a dorsal and other dun factor, it doesn't come and go (although alot of foal colors can be deceiving because alot 'appear' to have dun factor that actually don't).

I'd say Soda is also a dun, but again seeing a pic from behind and we could tell you for sure. What color are his parents? Depending on what they are if I was going to test I'd test for cream, see if he's light dun or buckskin dun (from the few photos I'd be leaning towards light dun).

Soda is most definitely a dun.

He has very obvious leg barring, zippers, dorsal stripe, wither markings, mask, ear tips, dorsal extending into tail, etc.

I was thinking of testing him for cream just for the heck of it. His sire is a dun and his mother is a palamino (why I was thinking about testing for cream). He isn't particularly light but I've heard that cream can be masked very easily and I am a little curious. I should've clarified that I wouldn't be testing for dun, but cream. Sorry

Gotcha! It may be fun to find out!

I just sent some samples to test my mare for frame and cream. I'd still like to test to see if she's homozygous for dun, but I'll save that for the next round!
