Hm, dun... Since the dun-gene is not desired in the Akhal Teke-breed I'm very interested if he's really a dun (he looks rather light brown, if that exists)... And if genetically yes, if purebred. Just asking, no offense of course Can you also maybe explain horse genetics a bit to me, if you know them? I'm having a discussion if duns are possible in the Teke-breed, some say yes, some (very acquainted with ATs) say no, there are only cream-influenced horses that go as "duns" when they're really buckskins or smokey blacks or perlinos... Would be great
pretty sure this mare is a dun. i know what you're saying, but i am no expert. so maybe you can ask this mare's breeder Jackie, you can contact her through her website here: [link]
i never heard that dun is undesired, i've come across some very nice duns at shows and never heard such a thing. some of them look bay, some look buckskin. i personally think looks don't matter, if a genetic test proves its dun you can't argue that lol.
Ugh, sorry that I made her male x'D Okay, yeah, that might be it, Duns are not desired and not bred for, but they can happen (as well as in any other breed I guess).
That discussion went further on and it became very clear that duns are not desired, yes^^ The problem with German Akhal Teke breeders is, they take "buckskin" and translate it with dun, what of course is total nonsense, but try to tell them, they laugh at you because, yah "you're no breeder, so stfu"^^ *eyeroll* many buckskin stallions are listed as duns here in Germany :/
