What color am I?
I bought a new horse. Send it in his papers and pictures to correct his color. What color is he? I will post later and tell you what the AQHA said :)

What color were the parents, might I ask?

Is he body shaved?

WickedNag 08-23-2012 03:34 PM

His body is not shaved :) and his sire is registered incorrectly and flagged by the AQHA his sire is registered at a red roan and hmm I will go find his dam, she is registered a bay.

He looks like a buckskin or dun roan to me.

Waiting a bit to answer this

Is he Doc Bar bred by chance? Docs Prescription?His head looks similar to the DP horses.

I would go with buckskin roan also. The hair at his tailhead looks darker, that is why I asked about bodyshaved.

He is def roan. It's figuring out his base color...........

I'd also say dun?

It's that 3rd pic with the zebra striping that gets my attention. But I don't see enough of a dorsal really to say 100% dun. BUT. The sire being registered incorrectly as red roan makes me think maybe he is a red DUN roan, which would lend in the dun genes to this fellow.
