I have no clue when it comes to color and genetics. I aquired a yearling filly today, and while I am pretty sure she is grulla, I just wante dto make sure before I go telling about my new grulla filly. Her dam is sorrel, and sire is a buckskin.

I say yes, and a very pretty one at that.

She's a grulla... but someone is wrong about her sire and/or dam's colours in that case lol. Grulla is caused by dun acting on a black base coat, and dun is a dominant gene that can only ever be passed on by another dun, so one of her parents HAS to be dun too. Do you have any pictures of them?

Absolutely grulla.

And her sire would have to be dun, not buckskin. Or mom would have to be red dun, not chestnut. (either sire or dam have to have the dun gene in order to pass it on)
