Another uncommon colour, the brown horse is dark brown all over with a brown mane and tail. There must be no black points.
A palamino is a golden colour with a flaxen (light) mane and tail. A variation of this is the sorrel which is more chesnut in colour but retains the flaxen mane and tail. The underlying skin is black.
The yellow dun has a mixture of yellow and black hairs on the body with black points. The blue dun, which is very rare, has a mixture of blue and black hairs with black points. Duns often have a black dorsal stripe.
A roan has white hairs spread throughout its coat. Areas which have short hair tend to be darker, while the body is lighter. The horse will look lighter in winter.
There are three variations; a stawberry roan (chesnut coat), a bay or red roan (bay coat) and a blue roan (dark brown or black coat).
