    He's adorable either way. He sounds like a good boy. Definitely a keeper.

    Most horses shed out darker when they first start out. Makes it difficult at first.

    I miss being around foals. I have tons and tons is pictures of grullas as foals. Most are a buff color.

    LOL, gotta love that lightbulb moment when they realize 'okay, maybe the human isn't a horse eating monster'.

    Don't feel bad, I'm out of shape too. I am incredibly lazy by nature and if there is something with 4 legs and a saddle anywhere close, I won't even walk 30 feet. I'll get on and ride those 5 strides LOL.

    Ok I can post some this evening after work. You asked for it though lol By saying lots and lots we are talking thousands of pictures. I spent lotsssss of time at the ranch when I picked my filly out. It.was fifteen minutes from my work. I was a regular fixture of the place. I halter broke my filly in a eighty acre pasture with over fourty curious fur balls hanging around lol Definitely my kind of place to be. Horses and cows nothing better lol

    Foal
    Your horse does have the dun gene. The base color may change slightly but he is dun and will be dun.
    Here is a website that may help: Color Calculator
    I believe your horse will be a light bay dun... which is pretty much what it is now, he may darken though.
    Hope it helps

    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.
    Looks exactly like our baby out of a black grulla mare crossed with a chestnut. They're telling us ours is called a Dunskin.
