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...
