Grulla Roan!

I thought this was a beautiful mare, she's nearby me, but I can't afford another horse right now. She is so stunning though! Her color is so unique! Just thought I would share

Agreed. She looks more like a blue roan. Stunning none the less!

Nope. Theoretically both can be simultaneous. Grulla is a completely different gene than roan, and yes, they are both black based. Thus she carries both genes (roan and dun), similar to how a dunalino carries both cream and dun.

Yup. Grulla roan is entirely possible. And that is what this horse is. Remember, a grulla is a black horse with a dun gene. A blue roan is a black horse with a roan gene. This horse is a black horse with both a dun gene and a roan gene. This is why it looks like a blue roan.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I had to laugh a bit when they said "she will definatey produce color". Spelling mistake aside, it's a silly claim! She's a very pretty colour, though. And yes, it is entirely possible to be grulla roan. It's just a black horse with both a roan & dun gene.
