Dun Appaloosa? Help?
I'll begin by saying i have NO knowledge of genetics/colours... And have never looked up/researched a horses pedigree before. So, I lease a registered Appaloosa gelding named Gus. His registered name is "Dineros Dun". I don't know his sire or dam's names. He's a dun, i think. Is this weird? Is there a way to try to find his pedigree if it's online? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'll post a pic of him, is he dun? He does have a dorsal stripe, it is a darker version of his body colour, not black.
I am by no means super knowledgable, but personally I am leaning more toward buckskin from that pic. However, sometimes its hard to see the dun markings in winter woolies. Does he have stripes on his legs? How distinct is the dorsal stripe? A pic of the dorsal would be great.
I haven't noticed any stripes, but i guess i havent really looked that hard. I'm out at the barn tomorrow, i will get a pic of his dorsal stripe, he's already lost alot of the woolies since i snapped this picture.
I think he's dun, you can see the shading variations on the legs and the mask on the face, it *looks* like he *may* have ear tips too. Better/more pics would be helpful to tell. Dorsal stripe, side view of legs, back view of legs, wither/neck, face shot, and back of his ears are all places dun markings show up.
Ok, i'll try to get those photos tomorrow. Thanks again.
Dineros Dun Deal Appaloosa
Would that be him?
Soda is a dun, though I haven't gotten him tested so I guess he *could* be a buckskin with sooty/smutty/whatevertheheckitis. His dam was a palomino and his sire is a dun, so he technically could be either, but he shows basically all of the dun markings (leg barring, face mask, ear tips, zippers, shoulder/wither barring, and a dorsal stripe) so I'm going with dun.. :lol:
Thanks xxdanioo ! i'm not sure.. hahah i'll have to find out his age and im trying to find out his parents' names.
MN Tigerstripes, His mane is waht stood out to me, Gus' is the same, has the blond "top coat"
Yup, but I've seen buckskins like that too.. So I'm not sure what that is caused by.. There are some genetic people on here who know a ton more than I do, maybe they'll pipe up?
That would be great!
