Nakota! I think a white nakota horse would be awesome! I can't wait to see more photos of her, she looks like such a sweet character.

Haha aww thank you! And she is. My mom and I are going to get her and another horse from a farm in 8 days, so I'll get some new pics then. But I'll post a couple pics of her last winter...
And haha... The last time I saw her there were horses running around the paddock. And I had her on halter & lead, so she reared in play because she wanted to run with them. So I let her go, and one of the first things she did was rear and paw the air, walk a few steps on her hind legs, and take off when she hit the ground. I love her soo much <3

She is a striped silver grulla. Zebra striped horses were believed to be able to move silently. They will have some striping across their back much like a dun or buckskin does at the shoulder but they are not brindle. She has some "chrome" which can sometimes look like roaning but it is what makes her a silver grulla.

This is a clean silver grulla. Same roan look but it is just a silver. Notice also has a belly line and shoulder bars.

Silver grulla is not a colour.

"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.
