My favorite color is the Grulla. If I have a buckskin mare, what is the probability she would throw a grulla? Would it be best to breed to another buckskin, or a grulla. I have no clue but I deffinatly want to breed her to the best possibility.

You need a horse with the dun gene. Buckskin is cream. They are completely different genes.

And you shouldnt breed specifically for color. Its much easier to just buy a grulla.

I would say your chances would be slim, even if you bred to a grulla.
Being a buckskin, your mare is for sure carrying one black gene (possibly 2) agouti and cream.
To be a grulla they must have atleast one black gene and dun. No agouti.
If you bred to a grulla there would still be a good chance that you would not get a grulla but probably a bay dun or a dunskin.
Your best bet would, as CLaPorte423 said, would be to buy one.
MelissaAnn and Nokotaheaven like this.

The best possibility would be homozygous black and homozygous dun. That will give you the following possibilites:

Smoky grullo (looks no different than a regular grullo, but the horse carries the cream gene)
Bay dun

If the mare is homozygous for agouti (carries two copies of it) there is 0% chance of her producing a grullo foal, no matter what color the stud is. As a buckskin, she's guaranteed to carry at least one copy of it.
