Well, the sale was today and apparently the horses went for much more this year. My friend got a colt last year for $900 and his sister went for $2000 this year!

Thanks and Gig'em!

If her legs had been dark all the way to the hoof, I'd of suggested grulla, but... Y'know. She looks grey.

I saw a mare that looked very similar in color to this girl today at a clinic and the gentleman said her papers say she is dun. He said the people who sold her to him told him she was dun with a champagne gene. What does that mean/is that a possibility?

Thanks and Gig'em!

Nope. She's grey. Grey can do all sorts of funky things, including mimicking dun by giving the horse dun factor markings. The filly you posted is definitely grey.

Listing her as grey is your best bet. She is indeed not gray but send the interested person pictures and explain that you tried your best to identify the color. Maybe she can help you.

SFD. Please explain what you are trying to say. You say to call the mare grey but she isn't grey?

The mare in the OP is grey regardless of what ever color she was/is under the grey.

Grey for sure....she was probably a dun color at birth and is greying out now.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
