It made me hesitate too Drafty but in the end let the body color persuade me more than the frosting. I'm usually wrong when I'm just guessing though. LOL

My guess would be Dun with no creme gene. I would think he would be lighter with both and he is definitely dun. I always thought frosting in the mane and tail was a dun trademark as well.

There is frosting possible with other dilution genes. It is not unique to the dun gene.
