What colour is this gorgeous creature??
1 Attachment(s)
I was going through a FB group i like called "Horses and Freedom" when i spotted this beautiful horse and fell in love with the colour. To me it's like a gun metal blue, but what would the proper colour be called?
Hope everyone is having a good day

Grulla :-) (Black + dun) Not all of them are that gray in color- many tend to have a brownish cast to them.

I don't even know if it's a male or female, but it stopped me cold. I know you should never buy any animal for it's colour, but i'd sure like that one in my imaginary stable!! :D

i had no idea about grulla.. I've lurked in the background here for a few months, and i am so interested in all the genetics, but I have a slight learning disability and find it very hard to remember and RETAIN everything I am reading. I would have called that a roan lol

Well that is Reining In Diamonds and her lighter shade is due tocream and dun. AQHA Broodmares - Shining C Grulla Horses
