Lets Talk Grullo/Grullas!
 
I've got a bit of an obsession with Grullo/Grulla horses... found this site.

Home - Shining C Grulla Horses

I'm hoping HOPING my filly turns out to be a grulla, but even if she turns out to be a "sandy" dun color like her half siblings I'd be happy too, :)

Any other grullo/grulla fans out there?? :D

Definitely one of my favorite colors in the horse world. So many in my area that I drive past and drool over..

ME! My first horse, Blue(I did not name him, I think his prev owners thought he was a blue roan) was/is a grullo. I thinking about breeding my TB in a few years and I want to try to get a tobiano grullo. She's a bay tho so I'm not sure if I could find a horse that could possibly produce that with her and also compliment her, but I'll look more into it when I'm more serious about breeding her.

Here is a pic of Blue

Awh your so lucky! My first horse was a buttermilk buckskin. I love the goat in the picture ! If your lucky you can find a grullo stud thats Homozygous for dun! Then you have a 25%-ish chance for a grullo offspring :D

I used to live a few miles from a girl who had a 5 year old silver grulla gelding. I would ride my gelding bareback over and meet up with her and we'd ride bareback with halters and leads down the gravel roads a bit. I never rerally knew her very well but she was a nice girl. That didn't stop me from wanting to push her off, grab the horse's leadrope and gallop home with him in tow. Now I've moved and missed my chance.

Totally missed your chance!

This is my fillies older half brother. I think she'll turn out like him, but Im still hopin for a grulla!

A lady I know has a grulla appy at her place, but shes an old bugger now with a sway back. I'd still take her ! Not to ride but just to be a nice pasture ornament! :lol:

The stallion that I am breeding to in May is a grulla Appendix Quarter Horse. He's very speed bred (dam is one of the highest producing AQHA broodmares)

First 4 pictures are of him, and bottom 2 are of 2 of his foals.

To produce a registered foal, you'd have to find an APHA stallion and the only way to be as close as possible to guaranteed grulla is a homozygous tobiano and homozygous dun because neither tobiano nor dun exist in Thoroughbreds. I'm not trying to sound like a Debby Downer, but you might have to do quite a bit of searching to find a quality stud that compliments your mare and is homozygous for both tobiano and dun. You could find one probably pretty easily..but I can tell you it will most likely be owned by a color breeder that only cares about the color.

Anywayyy. I do love grullos. I have only seen one in person and it was only when I drove past it several times this summer. I know a girl who just bought one, but I doubt I will ever see him other than in pictures.

THEDUNFACTORY.COM Paint Em All Dun would have worked.. but hes in germany now :P I like his spots on his face.. neato :D

Technically to get a tobiano grulla out of the TB, you'd need a Homozygous Black, homozygous tobiano and homozygous dun stallion.
