There appears to be a dorsal stripe. That would make him a dun. I don't think grulla (unless he's VERY sun bleached), so bay dun. It's also possible for him to have cream, making him a buckskin dun (some call it dunskin).

I have heard people call horses that are his color "sooty buckskin".

A Grulla can have, and often does have, a dorsal stripe but from the pictures I agree with everyone's assessment of being a Dun.

American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) - Grullo. Body color smoky or mouse-colored (not a mixture of black and white hairs, but each hair is mouse colored); mane and tail black; usually has a dorsal stripe and black on lower legs.

Isn't a grulla a black dun?
This horse does not appear black at all.

A grulla WILL have a dorsal, because a grulla is a black horse with the dun gene :)

He looks like a darker buckskin. He doesnt have that "mousey grey" of the typical grulla.

He looks to be a darker shaded buckskin. He doesnt seem to have the "mousey grey" shade of grulla.
