looks buckskin

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

There appears to be a dorsal stripe. That would make him a dun. I don't think grulla (unless he's VERY sun bleached), so bay dun. It's also possible for him to have cream, making him a buckskin dun (some call it dunskin).

A Grulla can have, and often does have, a dorsal stripe but from the pictures I agree with everyone's assessment of being a Dun.

American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) - Grullo. Body color smoky or mouse-colored (not a mixture of black and white hairs, but each hair is mouse colored); mane and tail black; usually has a dorsal stripe and black on lower legs.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Isn't a grulla a black dun?
This horse does not appear black at all.

A grulla WILL have a dorsal, because a grulla is a black horse with the dun gene :)

He looks like a darker buckskin. He doesnt have that "mousey grey" of the typical grulla.

He looks to be a darker shaded buckskin. He doesnt seem to have the "mousey grey" shade of grulla.
