What shade of Dun is my filly?

Hello all! I'm a newbie here, and was wanting everyone's opinion on my filly's color. Her mom is a bay dun, but my filly, Jetta, is more of a tan color. Here is a pic of Jetta and her mom http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0717081907.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...717081907a.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0717081936.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0717081937.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0720082010.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0720082011.jpg

I can't wait to hear everyone's opinions. Thanks

She looks like a similar color to me. Except with spots. Lol. They are both dun, but the shade can always vary. Extremely adorable filly!

I don't think she's a red dun, because they have red markings instead of the black ones that your girls has...

Maybe a light tan dun?

Thanks everyone for your opinions, and nice comments. I know she is a dun, definiately not a red dun, but wasn't sure if she could possibly be a grulla. I've heard the terms mouse dun, olive grullo, wolf dun, and brown. Which of these colors is she? I know I could have her tested, but I don't have the money right now.

I didn't know that there were specific kinds of duns... hmm, I learned something

I don't think she's grulla though, she's not slatey enough

Super-cute...so hard to tell what color babies will actually end up being. I'd agree that she's definitely not a grulla.

Thanks Sara. I didn't think she was a grulla, but I don't think she is a bay dun like her mom either. The sire is A Tru Rolex. He is homogyzous for the black and the tobiano gene. I think she is either a mouse dun, wolf dun, or a brown dun. Which one would you say she is?
