    Speaking of grullas....have a question. Color gurus needed.

    I'm wondering if my colt Chase has any chance of shedding out to a grulla. I would have said no, until today.

    This is his grandsire (grulla):


    This is his sire (grulla):


    This is his mother (buckskin?):


    His baby pic:


    Here are some photos I took of Chase today. He is shedding out the reddish color on his face to black. I had a dun last year (Lilly) and she kept her reddish face even through the winter.

    His face:


    His stripe (looks brown):


    Leg barrings:


    Ears:


    Back of ear:


    Whole body:


    I can't imagine that he will..but he has some characteristics of the grulla and some of the dun. So I'm completely confused.

    I'm still talking to myself it seems. But found something that looks exactly like him. So from what I'm reading..my Lillie was a bay dun...and he is...<drum roll> a brown dun.

    Dun no matter what! (I was so dissapointed when my filly didn't keep her stripe ha ha although I had a very good feeling she wouldn't. Still a gorgeous girl) You'll just have to wait & see. Will be exciting!
    Alot of the time people mistake a horse that is actually grulla for something else because their shades vary so much & alot of them change color during the year.
    Right now he looks like a dun but you're right, his face looks like it will be rather dark which is a grulla characteristic that the faces are quite black.

    I disagree. Most of the time people make the mistake of calling a dun a grulla. I have a friend with a black on the face, dorsal, primitive markings on the legs, so on and so forth... He is a dun, not a grulla. It takes more than a black face to make a grulla.

    Well, the brown dun discription fits him to a tee. But it will definitely be fun to watch him as he matures.

    Smrobs. You would LOVE his personality. He takes his time and thinks about things, but once he's figured it out, he's like ok...and then takes it all in stride. He's just now decided that I'm ok to be with him. He has finally started looking for me; walking up to me, nickering to me, and in general accepting my presence. I think I'm going to LOVE him.

    The other day I was going to take him on a stroll down the driveway and back. I get to the end of the drive way (about 1/2 mile from the house) and I realize that I had gotten so busy with him that I'd left the water on for the calves. I didn't want it to run over, so I asked him to trot, and he trotted all the way home with me. Of course, back at the barn I was weezing like a crazy person. It sucks to be that out of shape, lol! Wasn't fair. He wasn't even breathing heavily.
