Red Dun Question
Since we know he has to be red based, I will say he's going sooty. Those dark, marbled legs would have said SILVER to me on any horse with the possibility of being black based, but alas. I don't see cream and I definitely don't see dun. The foal color is wrong for dun and the dorsal really doesn't look dun at all.
I think you are right as I think the mare has sooty. It just threw me with the length of black and dark red hairs running down the middle of his tail - will still try to get a pic of him.
Probably also sooty. Oh btw, gray would have been the other thing I'd have thought (besides silver) when seeing those legs.
dosent look dun or cream to me either. Very cute thou!
This is Slaney's grandsire, which is where the Dun comes from.
He was born more or less this colour, although the mane and tail; can be darker, this is the "norm" for Red Dun in Europe, and the dorsal stripe is obvious and clearly delineated.
I am pretty sure your colt is Chestnut.
