    Dun or buckskin who cares!!!!!!! They all look beautiful

  • Gerri Scargill

    Gold star to H&H for catching up and changing the titles, well done Rachael Hook.

    This is the same publication that calls itself: “Horse & Hound magazine is Britain’s equestrian weekly ‘Bible’ ”
    I remember those who liked the bible don’t tend to like science or modern thinking

  • Gerri Scargill

    Several of the horses/ponies that are highlighted in this ‘duns for sale’ article are actually correctly described as buckskin in the adverts. However, H&H do not have the option of buckskin in their drop down menu to select colour when you search the ads. So the buckskin horse advertisers still have to use dun to classify their animal even if they know it’s buckskin and say so in the ad. So come on H&H, you need to join the 21st century, dun and buckskin are genetically different and duns are not even present in the gene pool in some breeds and very rare in others, which is of particular concern to some breeders. Perhaps this might be the basis for a really good article for publication in H&H, after all you like to showcase breeding and veterinary developments, colour genetics is a fascinating subject, particularly the genes that dilute colour, and not just for breeders, lots of people don’t actually know what colour their animals really are!

  • Gerri Scargill

    The majority, if not all, of these animals are buckskins, ie, they carry a cream gene, not a dun one. So much is known about colour genetics nowadays that calling a buckskin ‘dun’ is like still insisting the world is flat!

    I think this article should be renamed Beautiful Buckskins.
    They’re gorgeous horses but none of them are dun
