What Color Am I?
 
Okay, This is Java Joe, a lil Shetland/Welsh Pony cross. He has a dorsal stripe, black legs and ears. I'm sure he's a Dun, but he's kinda sooty? Just wondering what you guys think?

Dun or maybe a Lightish Bay/light buckskin???

Love the last pic of him!!

I would go with Buckskin, I believe Dun usually have faint stripes below the knee.

I'm guessing a bay dun....

SH-that's what I'm thinking too.

He cant be a buckskin cause he has a visible dorsal stripe, its not counter shading, cause its visibly darker than his coat color.

Cant be a bay because he has a dorsal stripe.

And to my knowledge not every Dun shows the leg barring on the legs?

He has the Dorsal stripe, its crisp clean and doesnt fade away in the summer or winter. He has the black ear tips, he has the neck shadowing, and the molting on his shoulders and flanks...?

but maybe I'm wrong?? He's a noodle scratching color, the lady we bought him from didnt know what he was either, but maybe figured someone on here might now. I might get him color tested to the end the mystery hahah

It's possible he's buckskin or possibly bay. Check out this site http://www.duncentralstation.com/LookALikeColors.html

Im still unsure. I keep choosing a color then I change my mind.

I know ! He's a mystery lol I thought of different colors and wonder if the dorsal is real or counter shading I can't figure him, would help if the original owner knew what colors his parents were

What colour are his parents? I am leaning towards brown based dun to be honest.
