Here is his pedigree! I'm thinking about taking a chance on him, she's willing to go lower with price. He does look weird in the video, but his winter coat is thicker and thinner in spots so he looks weird. Thank you all for the input, I'm going out to see him again soon to decide!

Wcr Happy Jack Quarter Horse

EDIT;; And I do NOT like where he is as I have said, not a sympathy buy, but I do feel he will turn out to be a great horse with the right training and I can give him a better environment and just let him be a horse till he's ready.

I don't think he is a grullo, IMHO. I'd like to see some pics of him all the way around.

Will do! She is sending me some pictures, and hopefully a new video in better light. It's quite a drive for me at two hours to get out there. So have been going back and forth via email, and phone. Hopefully will have some new pictures and video tomorrow!

Here's one more picture to go off of, I'm no color guru. She claims he's registered grullo with the AQHA. Is that possible? As I said I usually don't buy off of color, so this is all a plus... but again I'm not sure. I don't see the color here in the, nor have I seen his papers yet. Video and more pictures to come tomorrow. Thank you for all the responses so far. I am learning a lot from all you color gurus!

He definitely doesn't look like a grullo to me, lol. I have never seen one shaded like that and he has no stripes or anything else to go by. I'd say she is trying to sell him by saying he is an unusual color, could be wrong though, I do learn something new every day, lol.

That's what I was thinking, pretty convincing till I saw this picture. Would be a lot easier if he was closer! After the pictures and video tomorrow, I think I will go out and see for myself. He doesn't look anything like a "grullo" in that picture. I've been going through other pictures on the web and reading about the color. Very interested though I'll give you all part of the last email, not trying to start anything. LOL. Just want to get to the bottom of this.

"He likes to sunbath in the summer! He is a true grulla, he is registered as one. We have been able to see his dorsal stripe for months, even under his fur. He does have the zebra striping on his shoulders as well. He is a black grulla, black grullas have a orangeish/red tint to their mane, tail, and forelock as foals. We have a friend down in Illinois that has a black grulla with the same markings as HappyJack."


In all the pictures she's sent I see no dorsal stripe, no leg barring or striping. Maybe it IS hard to see in pictures. Although, in a lot of the pictures I've seen on the forum and internet, these features are prominent...

That lady has no idea what she is talking about and is probably not too knowledgeable about horse breeding, lol. Still, if you like him regardless of his coloring, go check him out! He is a decent baby.

Definitely what I'm beginning to think. She has now switched to more along trying to sell him to me on his color which I have told her isn't an issue as long as he's a good boy. Now though I think she is trying to "prove" in sorts that he is a grullo. So we'll see may have a road trip ahead of me!

Can I change my opinion? Coming from the buckskin background, I change my vote to a "no" on the black grullo. Black grullos look black, in that picture he's brown, with no visible dun factor. And lots of colors have red in their manes & tails. It's definitely possible with his breeding, but I just don't see it.

Can I just say that the footage of him being "lunged" was painful to watch? Poor baby!!

I say go look at him. He looks cute, but he looks like he may have some attitude (I didn't watch past the lunging, which took up most of the video).
