That's what the picture's comment was about: He looks like bay, but he's not. He can't be. His sire is a perlino.

For his siblings to be grulla/o one parent has to be dun, so unless his sire is a palomino dun (dunalino) they can't be grulla/o.

Like I said, I am emailing the breeder to see about getting pictures of his parents again.

I don't know about you guys, but the 2nd picture of citrus DOES look a little golden. And if you entertain the idea of the buckskin. It says that buckskin can express on either bay or seal brown. IF he was a buckskin I would say it would be on seal brown because if you look at the pictures he has that lighter shade next to his eyes and on his muzzle..

lilkitty, this thread has some really good examples of smokey browns, which is cream + brown.

I still maintain that Citrus is bay. Altogether too clear for me.

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.

yeah I vote brown on lola as well.

But I was just entertaining the idea of red buckskin on citrus. You honestly don't ever really know unless you get them tested.

It would be entertaining to have a red buckskin... but I really love bays, especially him :)
