You could find one probably pretty easily..but I can tell you it will most likely be owned by a color breeder that only cares about the color.

Anywayyy. I do love grullos. I have only seen one in person and it was only when I drove past it several times this summer. I know a girl who just bought one, but I doubt I will ever see him other than in pictures.
I know it will be near impossible to find a tobiano grullo stud will compliment Bella, I'm not particularly concerned about being able to register the foal, I wouldn't be breeding her until I knew 100% that I was financially stable enough for all the expenses that go along with breeding and keeping the foal. Actually I was looking into breeding to something like a spotted draft to get a thicker boned horse(don't really want to breed to a QH type) but this is all just fantasy at this point. My mare has already had 2 foals so I know I have a few more years to really consider if I'd rather breed or buy what I want.

That ad makes me stabitty....

Racehl you need to know what your mare's agouti status is before you even begin to look at studs. If she is homozygous for agouti you will never get a grulla.

I think your thread was based on him, you wanted opinions? This one is on just talking about the color in general, doesnt matter the breed or anything just the lovely color :)


Why is there a kid on that lil guy?! That's just wrong! Even if he is a kid... I can't tell if he's a grullo by the pictures.. he looks like a smoky black ? But that could be due to his baby fuzz. Don't think I've ever heard of a black grullo .. theres a dark slate ..?? SHADES OF GRULLO: Silver grulla, olive, dark slate, blue, white grullo, etc.

Or maybe NdAppy have you heard people use the term Black Grullo/Grulla ???

Grulla is dun on black. "black dun" is another pointless term ( I see it used on young foals who people are hoping are grulla but are actually lacking the dun gene. It does get used elsewhere, but really describes nothing imo). Just like "sliver grulla." I won't get started on that one. ETA all the terms on that site are just describing shade of color. IMO they are useless and make people think they are uber rare when they are not.

Dun on bay = bay dun

Dun on red = red dun.

OK I figured as much. SO its a gimick thing that its "a rare black grulla", to lure people into thinking their getting something rare?

You know so much about genetics! Is there any books or sites you can recommend? I'd like to learn more, :)
