Is Oggi a silver grulla? Me and a friend are betting on this. During the winter her legs get coal colored but in summer their coal or bronzed depending on how sun bleached she gets. Your thoughts please!!!!
I thought they were supposed to be a rare color - guess not as rare as they used to be?
Ah now that we can test for colour, 'rare' colours like grulla are relatively easy to come by - we can test for all the things that will cause it. So if you have two homozygous blacks, neither carrying agouti, and one homozygous dun... the resulting foal will be grulla :)
The problem with calling her a silver grulla just because she has a silvery hue to her coat is that that's not what "silver" is referring to. If you call something "silver", it means it has the Silver gene.
Double Cream Dilution - Can I get in on this bet??
Looks to me like she is Gulla with a double Cream dilution. The red hairs in her mane and tail are a tell tale sign . . . From what I have seen in pictures that the horses were tested and had a double Cream dilution. She is a beauty and I would love to have her :)
Dee - If you look at the last picture where she is going over the tarp you can see her Dorsal on her Butt. Just goes to show you that she has great muscle definition!
