    Dunskin, Grulla, or Buckskin?

    I just can't decide and I've been told she is all three!

    I'm thinking brownskin maybe lol I'm not entirely sold on dun at all.

    Yeah, I don't really think she is a dun either. The dorsal stripe is only a few inches long before it disappears.

    Her sire is a dark bay and her dam was a palomino.

    So dun isn't even on the table. In order for her to be dun, one of her parents would have to be dun.

    So, I'm going with brownskin (brown-based buckskin).

    "Dark bay" is usually what people call horses that are, in fact, brown.

    Thanks guys!

    I call him bay because his mane and tail are black but the rest of him is like a dark mahogany colour, and then his legs sort of fade to black. If I can find a picture of him, I'll post it.

    But colours confuse the crap out of me so I think you definitely could be right!

    Also, the only problem with her being a brownskin is that that colour is not listed on the AQHA colour options for her registration. Should I just pick buckskin?

    Here's a bad picture of her sire. It doesn't do him justice:

    Also, just for kicks and giggles, here is her dam and 10 minutes old sister:

    Now that I see the picture of her sire, I'm thinking not a "dark bay" at all. XD

    He's a brownie.

    I think....

    Sire is brown. Or, depending on what his sire and dam were, I could almost believe he's a brownskin, as well, based on that picture.

    Yes, just register the mare as buckskin. Registries are notoriously behind on the times when it comes to colors. The mare is more properly called a brown-based buckskin.

    I am thinking she looks to be a bay. And, esp. With the sire and dam's color.
