EQUUS - - Eq Handson -

A dor­sal stripe. This dark brown stripe, run­ning along the spine from poll to tail or any length in be­tween, is a char­ac­ter­is­tic fea­ture of dun horses but can ap­pear on some other col­ors. The dor­sal stripe, along with stripes on the legs and shoul­ders, are of­ten col­lec­tively called “prim­i­tive mark­ings.” Stripes are also found with equine coat col­ors other than dun, but they tend to be less pro­nounced and shorter.
