LOL I think that is so funny!!!

We really couldn't care less. She's my husband horse and he finds her beautiful. Picked her out more on looks then behavior... uggg... but he always said he wanted a grey or a buckskin... I laughed saying he got both rolled into one ;)

Lol, I think every horse person secretly looks at color even if its just a little.

Even though she has grey in her tale, doesn't make her a grey, she does look grey though, but I see buckskin or even grullo! This is a picture of a light buckskin horse:

She does looks like a buttermilk buckskin but her tail looks like its graying out.
And her leg "zebra" bars are all dappled like she is fading grey.
My gray filly was black forever but the inside of her tail had white streaks. As she grew older she didnt shade much on the coat but her tail kept getting lighter and lighter every season.

I would say she is grey too. She is defiantly cute either way, get her tested if you can't figure it out. That would bother me too! Lol

She is waaaaay too light in color to be grulla. It's hard to tell from the picture whether or not the barring on her legs is due to primitive markings, but I've never seen any dun with stripes all the way down their legs (not to say they can't exist) so I'm betting it's grey interfering with her black points. The tail does fade harshly, which is also a sign of grey. I'd doubt it is severe sun bleaching.
