what color is this!?

Quick question... What color is this? I mean he's not quite a dun....or a bay....or a chestnut. His mane is kinda grays-brownish and then his legs turn grayer in the spring and whiter in the winter.

Photos are necessary. In summer coat. Also the age of the horse.

Duns have a clear dorsal stripe which distinguishes them from buckskins and graying-out other colors.

Looks like a Dun to me! What is he and where are you located? Because he's the most primitive looking horse that I've ever seen and those aren't exactly common.

Maybe a Mongolian horse? -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongolian_horse

Hmm, I'm trying to find some information on the result of Wild Bay + Dun. That's what this guy looks like to me, but it's not proving easy to find any examples.

If he has no dun markings then I would call him a bay with pangare.

Alright, did some digging thru the OP's post history and found out that they live in Mongolia, so this horse probably is a Mongolian Horse.

Looks bay plus pangare. Need a picture of the back and tail to see if there is a dorsal stripe.
