Hi...
I am learning SO much here, I am so glad I found this site.
I just bought this AQHA stud colt, and love him regardless of what his color turns out to be, but I was reading alot of the posts and wonder.......
First, the sire of this colt is a red dun, the dam is a bay, who appears to have a dorsal stripe although it is just a few shades darker than her body color, it is there.
here is a link to some pics of my colt.
http://dpquarterhorses.info/billie_2.htm
He is 18 days old as of today. The 2 pics of him standing alone were taken yesterday, June 1, and make his color appear a LOT darker than he really is. The others were all taken the day he was foaled.
He has shoulder shading and the dorsal stripe, cobwebbing on his forehead, very faint leg barring, and what appears to be roaning, but I have not been able to get a good look at his belly to check for belly spots. Oh and I forgot to mention, his left eye is half blue(VERY blue at that) Anyway I plan to have him tested for dun zygosity and color BEFORE I register him, I have already sent for the forms and am awaiting some tail hairs from his sire to be sent to me, so I can send them, along with the tail hairs from his dam, to UC Davis asap. but I appreciate anyone's input! Thank you so much!

Kathy,
I would say he's definitely sabino and looks to be sorrel or possibly red dun if he shows some of the dun characteristics. I can't see them in the photo though.
You will only need the tail or mane hairs from the colt himself to have his color testing done, unless they are doing something different for the dun factor testing.
Very, Very cute fellow by the way.

Hi Kathy. Wouldn't it be cheaper and eaiser to just send in tail hairs of your colt? It's hard to tell in the pics for sure, but he just looks to be a sorrel. The faint dun characteristics you are seeing I think are just counter shading. My filly is a dun tobiano here are some pics of her dun markings.
