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.

There aren't any short cuts to any place worth going...

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.
