I'm thinking she might be a brown dun, or possibly a bay dun, but I think more of a brown dun...

Here's a good link to help you out

She looks like a sooty yellow dun to me. We had a curly gelding and he was a light buckskin dun with sooty (black) shading over the tan on his face around his muzzle, jaws and ears like your filly.

I'm not sure what kind she is, but she's very cute. :)

Ride more, worry less.

I've been looking at pics on the net for sooty duns, and I think that is what she must be. I have the book "equine color genetics", and it says that the sooty gene is a inherited trait. She must have got it from her dad. He is a double homogyzous black and white tobiano, "A TRU ROLEX". Since he is black, I suppose you would not be able to see it if they had the sooty gene or not. I noticed your from Riverside, Ca. I used to live in Escondido, and Valley Center. Small world!

Thanks everyone else for all your opinions, and nice compliments on Jetta. Here are a couple of recent pics http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...10081314-1.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...717081907a.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0720082010.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0720082011.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...0720082016.jpg http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/a...720082011b.jpg

There is no test for dun yet, but if you test her, she's probably a bay w/ the dun gene (they can test for bay). She doesn't look black dun (i.e. grulla) or sorrel/chestnut dun (i.e. red dun), and doesn't appear to have any other dilutions (creme, champagne, etc). This would make her a bay dun, like her dam. Just a different shade. Also called Cougar dun and Peanut Butter Dun by some. But genetically, all are bay dun. She may have the sooty gene, as it wouldn't show up much on dad... but she may not. Hard to tell as such youngsters. They change so much for the first several years (it seems like forever since my girl has been progressively looking more and more red dun.. she is registered sorrel.. lol..).

If she did not have the line down the back she would be called a Buckskin.

She is not a grulla, she would be darker grayish/brownish color
