Here is a pic from today. Not a great shot because he wouldn't stand still.

It's hard to see but in person, his neck is getting the grayish green like a Grulla color.

Not a grulla then. Grulla's are black based
His nose is far too brown to be true black, therefor I would say bay/brown dun

He may be cute but he definitely has the stubbornness of a mule when he doesn't want to do what you want him to do.

Brownskin (brown+dun) going off his face. The rest of his coat is ratty looking (baby shed) and I don't think fair to judge color off of. He's really lighter than I'd expect, esp with the dark points. Love how his zebra stripes are staying so so strong!

I haven't measured his height yet. He's taller than a filly that is 4 months older than him. He turns 1 Aug 27th. He is big already and probably will be quite tall once finished growing.

Brownskin is brown + cream, not dun. Brown dun is the name for brown + dun - like bay dun for bay + dun.

Personally, I see donkey dun, which is different to horse dun. The horse dun may still be there, but the donkey dun is causing the over the top markings you can see.

Completely agree with this... Not sure why I wrote what I did, I do completely know the difference

Agree with "donkey dun" but wouldn't the mule still be called "brown dun"?
