The body here is a yellow or gold. The mane and tail can be nearly any color, including the body color, red, brown, white, mixed, but most commonly are black or dark.

To be officially considered a dun, the horse MUST have a dorsal stripe--usually dark or black. There is also sometimes a matching stripe down the back. Duns have either zebra-like stripes, or a solid dark shading on their lower legs. Dun is a highly common color in wild horse breeds.
