Dun or buckskin?
3 Attachment(s)
Do you guys think that my mare is a Dun or a Buckskin? I have heard both.

Both! Dunskin. Meaning she has both the cream gene and the dun gene modifying her base color of brown or bay. Of course, I am not a color expert- but I am sure they will chime in soon.

I don't see dunskin. I see just bay dun. The first picture with the flash being used makes it look almost like dunskin, but the bottom two definitely don't. A buckskin dun would be creamier, but he is a "flatter" color.

Definitely not a dunskin that's a bay dun. Here is my dunskin they are much lighter and creamier because they have two dilution genes. As you can see there is a big color difference. He is a darker shade of dunskin even than most others I've seen. A lot of the dunskins I've seen in person are even lighter than this.

Definitely a dun.

The horse on the left is a buckskin, the one on the right is dun.

Goldie has countershading, but isn't a dunskin.

Can you take pictures outside in natural light without camera flash?
