 Dun is considered a wild or primitive color pattern among horses wild or domestic. This little mare is also a palomino.  She not only has  a dorsal stripe but she has striping on her legs and  darker red outlines on her ears. One of the more famous of the Dunalino Mustangs in the us is Corona of Sand Wash Basin HMA. In addition to his dun striping and he also has a darker burnished face during the Summer like some of the more acient breeds.  

This little mare is owned by Kirren Dolan.

The image on the right can be clicked to see it larger. You can see
her dorsal stripe along her back as well as her leg strips.
And you can clearly see her WH&B Program Brand on her
neck.  She really is quite pretty.
