While it is possible for a pali to produce a grullo, depending on the stud, that is not what you're horse is. That horse is a sooty buckskin.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sooty buckskin. Possibly smoky brown/brownskin.

I second sooty buckskin.

Thanks guys! It was kinda confusing especially since she is registered as dun but she has no dorsal stripe

I'm not sure why it is, but it seems as though the color the horse is registered as is mostly left up to the owner that fills in the registration application. My mom was so focused on having a black foal that she registered her black bay as a black. Everyone but her knew the baby was a bay the moment it was born and not a black. After a few years of harassing her, she finally changed the registered color to bay.

I think what happened is she may have been born looking like a dun and her color changed as she got older. She was born on this farm and is now 20 years old. Certain times of year she does have a slight dark line down her back that could be mistaken for a dorsal stripe

Did the filly have a roan parent? I would imagine that the registry may prevent horses from being registered as a color that is impossible to achieve from the parents.
