Ok, looking through Quest photos, looks like his shedding started at about a month old, around his eyes, moving up around his lips around 6 weeks, around 7 weeks the shedded area was starting to contect between the eyes and mouth, around 8 1/2 weeks nearly all his face had shed, around 11 weeks he'd started shedding out around the tops of his legs, 12 weeks finally showing some black on the lower legs, and somewhere around 15 weeks looks to be almost completely shed out!

He'll be whatever he is, and I'm sure you'll be happy either way! I didn't look the pics over real well, but he looks grullo to me! If it helps my grulla mare was misregistered as dun!

This is not true. Black and black, does not always make black.

And the ear tips ARE typical of dun! All dun, red dun, bay dun, grulla, etc.

I haven't seen the pictures yet but a,lot of grulla babies are born "bay dun" looking and shed out grulla. I don't know all the technicalities but with a successful breeding business and several grulla foals, quite a,few looked just plain bay dun until they shed out.

He's got one of the prettiest heads I've seen on a foal this year! Very pretty little guy.

Thank you:) I'd have to say I agree, I think it's well shaped and proportioned. He's a handsome little guy and extremely friendly too. He loves to be rubbed all over and we can pick up his feet as brush him down and grab around his face and all over and he actually enjoys it. Not much at all spooks him either, he has a lot of traits like his mother, very calm and easy going and just a happy little guy.
