red dun

  1. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I have owned Spencer for almost 5 years now and have always called him a chestnut (papers say that too). However, throughout the years I have been around many different chestnuts and none of them seem to look similar to him. I am almost certain he is a red dun, because of the dorsal stripe that...
  2. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey everybody. So for you that know I rescued Henry, a 5 year old AQHA gelding back in October... well now that he is up in weight and actually has muscle I got some photos and would like your thoughts on him. Sorry if they're not perfect he doesn't do well with being tied so is kind of fidgety...
  3. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I've noticed that my red dun quarter horse mare, Nifty Anne Bar, or Annie, has a (maybe) weird coloring. The hair that grows on the inside of her tail (sounds weird, but that's the only way I know to describe where it's at) is black! She has red hairs surrounding it, which covers it...
  4. Horse Talk
    So my new horse came off the trailer Tuesday, and I just adore him! I was very nervous to buy another horse sight unseen after my old show gelding fell apart, and wasn't planning on buying another one until after I broke my yearling next year. Oops, lol! Anyways, a little about him. He's a 3...
  5. Horse Conformation Critique
    I picked up a five year old mare exactly a month ago today, and just wanted some opinions on her. She's been a pasture pal for the last five years, so she definitely needs muscled up. Ive started her recently and been on her quite a few times this past month, she's coming along nicely despite...

  7. Horse Colors and Genetics
    The general consensus is sorrel, but she has a red dorsal stripe. What do you guys think? Red dun or sorrel? Does a dorsal stripe automatically consider a horse to be a dun? In the summer, she fades out to be a deep gold color. In the winter her coat becomes more of a rich chestnut. Her...
  8. Horse Conformation Critique
    Could you please critique his conformation, he is an AQHA colt; I got him about three weeks ago and started fitting him for halter. I am here for critiques, I would like honesty . I want to know what's looking good and what needs work. I work him about 1 1/2 hours 4-6 days a week usually just...
  9. Horses for Sale
    Curryville, MO: I am posting this for a friend. She has a Red Dun filly for sale, both parents are registered but she has not yet been registered. She is going to be a large stocky horse, she will be a year old in March. She has a great disposition and is going to be easy to work with. She...
  10. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I'm hypothetically thinking about breeding my mare who from what I've read is a Red Dun. I thought she was Chestnut/Sorrel but she has a dorsal stripe. Any way what color stud should I breed her to to get the best chance of a Buckskin/Dun foal? (They've always been my favorite)
  11. Horse Breeds
    I'm trying to find out if Oldenburgs can come in dun colouring, because I've buckskin Oldenburgs, but Google is failing me. Do you know? I'm trying to figure out the breed of my red dun gelding, and his body type looks exactly like every other Oldenburg, but I thought he would have to be a cross...
