What color will my filly be???
3 Attachment(s)
Hi, I am new to the forum but not to horses. Our little filly was born 3 AM this morning and we are trying to figure out what color she will be?? Mom is a Buckskin and dad is a Grullo with Dun factor. We are just so happy she is here safe but are driving ourselves nuts trying to guess Dunskin or Grullo??? Thank you everyone in advance!!!!:D

I'd say dun. Grulla's typically have very dark faces & so most grulla foals i've ever seen were born black or dark grey/smokey brown.
Very adorable btw!

Right now, it kind of looks like bay dun (or just dun). Foal coats can be tricky though, so he may shed out to dunskin.

She looks dun to me as well. Doesn't really give the impression of a dunskin and is definitely not a grulla.

Awesome!!! You can't see it in the pics but she had a very defined reddish dun stripe which is why we were thinking dunskin....

She sooooo adorable! Congrats!
I'm on the Dun boat as well.

Thank you all for the compliments!!! Whatever color she is we love her and she has a great home with us!!! I still can't believe she is finally on the ground.....maybe it was the 2:45 AM wakeup???

Ok what is the exact definition of a dunskin?

MN Tigerstripes 03-28-2011 08:58 PM

Dunskin is a dun with the cream gene. She might just be a buckskin too...

She looks like a buckskin but if she has a dorsal stripe it would be dunskin. The best way to tell is to have her tested.
