    What color would our mule be called?

    I had someone ask what color our mule is. I'm not sure what you would call it. A dun Grulla? Dun buckskin?

    Look at that leg barring, too cool! Just to look at him/her right in this moment I'd say a buckskin dun but that can change when it sheds its foal coat.

    Don't know about colour (I should think JCnGrace knows) but that is just the best little mule!! What are your plans for him?

    What color are the parents?
    It's hard to say until the baby sheds a time or two as foal sheds can range from obvious to extremely deceiving. I would say there's little doubt that he's carrying dun, but as to his base color (either black or black+agouti) that will determine whether he is just a bay dun or a grulla

    Thanks for the compliments. We have no info on the father but his mother is a bay dun. I'm not sure when I took that pic but I'll try to get a current one. He's starting to get the olive color of a Grulla.

    Foal sheds are very dark, I would guess buckskin, but due to the lighting could maybe see grulla too.

    Going based on nothing but science here... I think this colour is the rare and much desired "cute".

    I've had many say that his stripes come from a zebra but there wasn't any zebras there.
