Looks to me like a silver grullo, but I could be wrong, she'd look fantastic with a roached mane like a fjord :3

Looks like she could be, she's very pretty. It would be a shame to roach that beautiful mane, I hope that you don't!

It is nice and long, but I've seen some cool designs with manes like that

Those roached manes are very creative. However Truffels only has the frosting on the top. She is much darker underneath her mane. Don't worry Remali I have no plans of roaching her mane.

If she id grullo that would mean she carries a dilute gene right?

Grulla is a black horse with a dun gene, which is a dilute yes. However, when most people use the word "dilute" they are usually referring to cream not dun. So while you are very correct in saying that she is a dilute, most people will misinterpret what you mean lol.

She definite is black based with dun, so definitely grulla. What does her tail look like?

Her tail is very simular to her mane. Starts off w/ frosting and goes darker underneath. However her dorsal stripe continues down into the head of her tail and shows.

Can see some of her tail here.

Nuuuu! While many grullos are a silvery shade of gray, saying they are a silver grullo implies that they are black + dun + silver. This mare is just plain grulla, which is a gorgeous color on its own. Note that her mane differs from the ones below because her light hairs are very heavy frosting rather than silver changing the color.

These are actual silver grullos
