"Silver" grulla is a marketing ploy designed to sell horses that are "fancy" and "rare". A grulla of any shade is caused by a black horse having a dun gene. The silver cast to the colouring could be caused by a lot of factors, as could the warmer shade of the second horse, such as sun fading, season, diet, time photo is taken etc. The top horse also looks like it could be clipped, which also takes a lot of warmth out of the colour of any horse. The top picture was taken some time in the middle of the day - say from 10 am to about 3pm. The light then is sharper, and makes everything seem harsher, including colours. The second photo is taken in the "golden" hour - some time in the few hours before sunset. This time is so called because of the warm cast it tends to give photos.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
