    I'd call him Liver chestnut.

    Was he body shaved in some of those pics?

    I too believe Lil' Joe is a light sorrel. A dorsal stripe is very, very prominent, and though may lighten in the winter, it never truly vanishes.

    However, the dorsal stripe missing does not mean a horse doesn't carry a dun gene. It may be presented in other ways.

    Also, I'd say his facial white and back feet show sabino.

    I have vever shaved any of my horses, I'm scared to. The closest they get to a shave is their bridle path and muzzle, LOL...

    That's a good point TA about the dun gene but never thought of sabino....

    It is interesting how dark his legs are in that one pic where he is so light, that's why I asked about body shaving.

    Hey Y'all,

    I'm new to this site and new to this thread. My husband and I live in near Austin in Central Texas with our horses, dog, cat, hermit crabs, parrot and temporary pets (chinchilla, rabbit, guinea pigs, hamster, and parakeets).

    We have 10 acres in what used to be a fairly rural area, but we're now surrounded by subdivisions.

    Our horses include a new-to-us 5 year old Clydesdale mare that is hopefully pregnant (vet appointment is made to confirm) and an approximately 15 year old un-touchable gelding that has suffered horrible abuse and neglect for most of his 15 years.

    I had the gelding reliably catchable and handleable until I wanted more and hired a "trainer" to work with him. The trainer immediately began using heavy handed tactics that *might* have worked for an extremely spoiled horse coupled with withholding food, water and shelter during August in an attempt to gain compliance. After several days of this guys methods, the gelding attempted to harm the trainer by actively attacking him. I went and got him and brought him home. No one has touched him since; including me. The guilt I feel for what I did to him is horrible...

    The mare is new and unbroke. She's also terrified of everything around here: cows, donkeys, goats, electric fence. Her history was as a halter horse until she was three and then she went into the broodmare barn. She's had one foal (a yearling) and is currently bred back to the same stallion for a Feb 2013 foal. We hope to saddle break her for trails and shows; continue her halter career (mostly for fun); and maybe breed her once or twice more.

    Whew! I never claimed to be one of few words...

    Country boy Texasgal is trying to get you down near her.
    She has a daughter about your age ..... get my drift.
    If she asks you for a credit report , to pee in any cup, or for a blood sample start evasive measures at this time.
    I have seen a picture of her daughter. You will probably like her.
    That's how they trap you Country Boy so remain on gaurd constantly.
