What color am I?!
Husbands new horse, Hondo, is undecided. LOL. Old owners called him a buckskin. Someone at the barn told me he wasn't a buckskin. He was a dun. In my experience all the dun's I've seen have been the lighter tan colors. I have seen some terms referring to a 'dunskin'. I looked on the IBHA and they have a dun as the darker color, buckskin as lighter. Duns are said to have the primitive markings, the dorsal stripe, shoulder stripes, and striping on the leg. While I believe the color associate should know what their talking about, lol, he just doesn't match either. Hondo only has a dorsal stripe.
So ok horse forum, what color is he? http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...s/P9100081.jpg http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...s/P9100083.jpg http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...s/P9100060.jpg

I believe him to be a dunskin. They weren't recognized as an actual color until recent years (in the old days in my area, they would have just been called a yellow dun).
He's a cute looking guy and I'll bet he'll be quite a looker when you get some more meat on him. :D

That's what I'm thinking too. Now when I'm looking on the IBHA website, they don't mention that color as eligible. So I wonder if I can color register him?

You would register him as dun, I would assume, with the IBHA because he has the dun gene. You could contact them too and ask. I know there are dunskin registered with the IBHA (SBR Formula One, for example), but I don't know what as.

Thanks :) Husband has no reason for him to be registered, but my new paint is, so I thought I'd be nice and get Hondo some 'papers' lol

I looked up pictures of SBR Formula One, and he matches, just darker! Good find! :)
|Poseidon ||09-11-2011 02:33 AM |
I love SBR Formula One. :D
Hondo will look fantastic when he has some more weight on him!
|Idlepastures ||09-11-2011 02:36 AM |
Its a waiting game! He's a quararab, so he'll fill out some, but won't have the butt my QH has :( But thats ok. I can't wait!!!! I have no patience! We also have a b/w paint, as well, that is gaining weight.

I agree on Dunskin. Look forward to seeing pics as he fills out!
Love the name :) My heart horse is named Hondo.
|Idlepastures ||09-11-2011 01:25 PM |
Thanks MH. He came with that name, the other one I did change. Husband liked Hondo, so it stuck. Can't wait for some more weight!
