It looks pretty good! I don't know that I would call black uncommon (not your words, but you said there aren't many), I've actually owned more blacks then any other color.

You could add sabino to your pinto page. Also don't know that I would say bay roan is rare.

The only other thing, is buckskin and dun are not the same, and a page dedicated to the differences would be good, it's what stumps alot of people. I actually thought you forgot buckskin (which I would say is closer to palomino, then dun), until I saw it on your dun and roan page. I would probably also give roan and dun separate pages, and maybe add a page for uncommon combo colors (like blue roan/grulla, roan palomino, etc.) you could move the pintaloosa there. Ok, so more then more other thing, but also would could do a page that tells the difference between sabino, true roan, and rabicano! Ok, thought of another one, cremello (I know you have one on the palomino page), perlino, and smokey cream!

Well for starters, there's no such thing as an albino horse.

I was under the impression that DUN was it's own color and not related to buckskin... sometimes my gelding gets called a buckskin but he is clearly a dun. I didn't know they were "sometimes known as" one or the other.

Buckskin and dun are definitely different things, but I think there are supposedly "buckskin duns" too. Someone else could explain that..
I believe that a true buckskin would not have a dorsal stripe or other dun markings, if I am not mistaken. Which would make the horse shown in the photo a true buckskin..
Whereas a dun absolutely has to have certain markings in order to be a dun (dorsal stripe, tiger striping on legs, etc..).

Also is the horse marked as a chocolate palomino really a chocolate palomino? It looks like it may just be a darker palomino in the shade..whereas a chocolate is more like the colour commonly seen in Rocky Mountain Horses (see my horse Rocky as an example) which is also known as "silver dapple" or "chocolate flaxen".

Explaining a buckskin dun, it's a bay horse w/ the creme gene (making it a buckskin) and a dun gene, making it a buckskin dun. And yes a true dun has to have a dorsal, along w/ other dun characteristics. free_sprtd's horse is a dun (bay w/ the dun gene), the horse on the site looks like a buckskin (if it's a dun, it's a buckskin dun, can't see it well enough of it to be sure, but if I had to guess I would guess regular buckskin).

The chocolate palomino does look chocolate to me, but the one marked cream, is just a light palomino.

Yes there was no question that my gelding is a Dun, however, her description says they are the same thing. I just wanted to clarify that.

you can get albino in any organism, ive only ever seen one horse in the flesh though, its a medical condition where there is not pigment in the skin.
