What color is this gelding?

I know he is fat, he isn't my horse but my friends.

I think he is a dun because he has the dorsal strip but you would think he is a palmino until you get close to him and you can see his back.

I had a picture where you could see the dorsal but it couldn't upload because it was to big. >>

Palomino"Dunalino"Also called "Linebacked Palominos"

Do you have a better picture? Because from that, he could look like a light chestnut, a red dun, maybeee a palomino or dunalino. It's a really vague picture, especially with his winter coat.

I don't have any others of him without his winter fur, he is shedding like crazy and there are parts of him that doesn't have the thicker fur. I can get a picture tomorrow.

Hard to tell with his winter fuzz. I am really not trying to be mean, but that horse is morbidly obese. Please, for the horse's sake, convince your friend to consult a vet about getting his weight down.

He is a bear. Geez. Do you happen to know what colour his parents were? Or would your friend?

He's a red dun.

^^I agree with you. I was thinking red dun.

He's gonna be a deaddun if his owner doesn't get some of that weight off him! :shock:

Holy morbidly obese, Batman!
