Appaloosa Duns

I've tried to note which horses have proven they are actually duns by producing dun from non-dun horses, since many Appaloosas develop a dark dorsal line as they color up.

Sherry Webb  writes:
"This is my grulla appy's stripe that continues into her tail. I think it is funny how the dark dun stripe turns white!   The only place you canwpe1.jpg (15893 bytes) actually see the dark dun stripe is in the one or two body colored spots she has along her spine." (Click to enlarge the small pics)


wpe87.jpg (11257 bytes) Wakita's Whirlwind, 1997 ApHC # 565775. Sherry continues: "Verified Smoky Grulla by UC Davis. Tested EE,aa,Crcr.  Of course there isn't a dun test, but she is dun; with dun factor, dilute body color, and she has had 2 dun foals from non dun sires to prove it! Also, she is 87% Foundation bred, with some of the greatest Appaloosa sires such as Mighty Bright, Navajo Britches and Peavy Bimbo in her pedigree. She also traces back to Triple Crown winner, Whirlaway, on her dam's side."

Sunnita's Duchess.  Her owner writes: "She has wonderful cob webbing on her face.  Leg barring still shows, even with her heavy roaning. She is a five year old. She was a BuckskinSissy2.JPG (72756 bytes) colored Dun like her sire when she was foaled. She had a jet black dorsal and tranverse stripe like her 1/2 sister Sunnita's Rose~ AQHA." Mary "Annita" Blake of Wolf  Run  Ranch in Cameron, WV.  "You can see the remnants of her dorsal stripe."
