    Remali, she isn't red enough to be bay, IMHO. Buckskin (or more likely brownskin, given the more chocolate color of the mare's hard points) is a definite probability, given the sire and dam's colors.

    Possibly, altho I have seen some real brownish bays... I think to know for sure you'd have to do testing.

    I'm hinging on buckskin (or to be more genetically correct, brownskin, but to the common horse world, they'd understand buckskin as any form of the Agouti gene with a single creme gene). Grulla would be more of a grey body with the black points, and I agree with most others that it appears to be more counter shading down the spine than an actual dorsal stripe from the dun gene.

    Yup, brownskin (registered as a buckskin since most registries don't recognize the difference yet). Dorsal stripe is just countershading.
