My new mare

My mare passed away this past summer and it really took it out of me. I felt on the verge of getting rid of my other horses.

I've been looking for the past 6mos and finally found a mare She is 16yr old quarter horse, she is grade so doesn't come with papers. Her owner listed her as a buckskin but I just don't know she looks like a dun to me. Anyone want to way in please feel free on her color or anything else.

Imma come steal her!!! She's beautiful. She looks like a sooty buckskin to me. The sooty is causing the darkness on her head and upper neck, and it looks like she doesn't have a true dorsal stripe, but just counter-shading.

Thanks everyone, I was so excited that I didn't even mention that she is 16yrs old. When I saw her and her price I wanted to go see her but she was 3hrs away. Then I remembered that I had a young friend who went to college in that town so I called her up and she said sure.

My friend called me and said if I didn't get this horse her and her friend were going to buy her, or buy her and if I didn't like her when summer came she would buy her off me. Needless to say I was sold. They are in equine studies so it was enough for me. My husband on the other hand was like do you know that will be a 7hr roundtrip at least lol But he was a real sweetie and went and got her. I take care of my dad so I didn't get to go ;-(

I'm posting another pic that for some reason didn't load up. It is of her butt.

The pic doesn't even due it justice but her dorsal stripe is very pronounced. My sister has a dun and her horse's dorsal isn't as dark and prounounced as my horse. The pic doesn't show up all the frosting on her mane and her tail either.

My mare that passed away was a bay and it looked as if she had a dorsal stripe, now I could tell that it was just countershading on her.

I'm just so curious, these of course are all winter pics. When summer comes and they shed out should the dorsal stripe get stonger looking or less? If they are a dun.
