Dun - From Foal to Adult

anyone have pictures of duns over a period of time? Foal to adult or even summer-winter? I just got a 5 month old grulla filly, and I'm not sure what to expect in the color department. Here she is:

Do you have a pic where she isn't moving? My dunskin is only 19 months or I'd help you out.

best I've got at the moment. Sun was setting, so the light is very golden, her coat is grey. Black mane and tail, very obvious shoulder barring, dark dorsal stripe.

I love grullas. Their color is always so soft and pretty.

She's so pretty! She should be a beautiful shade of grulla when she's older.

Has she shed her foal coat at all? Most grulla foals are born kind of a tan color like she now and shed out to the dark gray/silvery color that your typical grulla looks like.

She looks like she might greying out as well?

I'm awaiting photos from her previous owner, but she claims neither parent is grey. She is still shedding some foal coat

I'm not inclined to say that she is greying out. The lighter streaks in her mane and tail are a common dun factor sometimes called "frosting". It definitely makes for a really flashy horse. I also think that she will likely shed out and become a bit darker. Her markings will be much more visible and defined in her summer coat.
