brindle in spanish horses?

These are photos I took of a Spanish bred mare at the 2010 All Breed Show. I'm not entirely sure, but this horse could be either Sonhos Balarin or Hanna Indiana. I suspect she's a Lusitano, but I could be wrong.

I know dilutes occur in the Spanish breeds, and to me this mare looks to be either buckskin (she has a clear dorsal and at least parts of the mane and tail are black/dark), or grey over an unusual base. But what do you all think? Could she be a brindle or am I just seeing a painted zebra?

I would say that she is mostly a dun base, though the unusual coloration on her neck and shoulders appears very brindle-ish to me.

I am beginning to wonder why brindles seem to be becoming more and more common in many breeds .

Interesting... pretty mare. I think that is brindling.

She looks like she's got the brindling gene. There's actually a great horse color book called Horse Color Explained by Jeanette Gower. You should read it. Great information about color that is actually understandable. I've certainly enjoyed reading it.

She is a Lusitano, I had a chat with the owner...

Smrobs, I've noticed that too. Wonder why?

I don't think there is a gene for brindle most are chimeras

This is Colonial Spanish Stallion Chato's Shadow a homozygous (for dun) grulla:

My grulla roan CS horse has striping on her chest neck and shoulders...I don't know what it is, but it's there every season regardless of coat (winter, summer, spring or fall)
