What colour is this horse?

His name is Smokey, and he's a baby. :P
I'm having a mental blank, and I'm wondering what exactly his colour is. Dappled Grey? Buckskin? Or...?
And please tell me what exactly a Grulla is, and how to tell if a horse is one.

How old is he?

It's a bit hard to tell from one picture. I am going to guess that he is grey, but that is just a guess based on the lightness on his face. Roans usually have darker faces than their bodies.

A grulla/o is a black dun basically. You should see dun markings such as leg barring and definitely a dorsal stripe.

Well, he's not mine, he's a friends, and she says he was just broken in, so i'm guessing he is no older than 5. He's at the bottom of the pecking order, if that helps :P

My guess is sooty buckskin.

I was thinking buckskin too.

Another vote for sooty buckskin here. The way the darker coloring is on his shoulders and forehead is very reminiscent of my sooty bay.

Sooty Buckskin would be my guess.
