    Default Color peeps please help me, how would I describe this color?

    [edit] I need to know how to describe his color? I've been looking on CL and see some pics of horses that look similar to him. They have them as tri-colored (yes I know there's no such thing) to buckskin paint.

    Thanks for any help!! Getting ready to go outside and begin barn chores and hopefully get a ride in, will check back in later!!

    A grulla horse tends to look greyish all the time.

    That horse looks grulla in some pictures, but clearly dunnish in others, with some tan to him.
    That is why I would think, but of course don't know, maybe not really a grulla colored paint.

    The genetics of those colors are changing so fast, I don't know what that coloring would make him today, for breeding purposes.

    I thought Grulla Pinto when I looked at the pics but I'm not a color expert.

    I though grulla paint at first then he also looks dun in some photos. I wouldn't say buckskin though. I'd probably just call him a tri colored paint myself and if I had to get more specific I'd say grulla probably.

    I'd go with grulla/pinto
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    He appears to have a dorsal stripe, so dun paint.

    He is a buckskin tobiano.

    There is no dun factor.

    Tobiano, sure, as far as his paint markings.

    Now, I thought buckskin was part of the dun dilution genes?

    Buckskin is bay with 1 cream gene. (like palomino is sorrel/chestnut with one cream gene)

    Dun is a separate dilution gene that is not related to cream. "way back when" Dun and buckskin were interchanged on registration forms because no one knew there was a difference. Both are able to be tested for.

    Here is a great Facebook page if you enjoy learning about the genetics of color. They will also help with identifying colors if needed. Although nothing beats testing.

    That one picture he sure does look red, does he, but I think he was in camouflage from his real color.

    Are there definite leg bars and a dorsal stripe? If not, it can't be one of the dun modifiers like grulla, bay dun, etc. Without the dun attributes (bars, stripe, "zippers", and rimmed ears), the second guess would be a cream gene.

    LOL to both! I was wondering too what the mod had to edit. And yes, he does to appear very red there.

    No barring or stripe. Back is even colored from one side over to the other. I WISH he had barring and a dorsal stripe, I love that!

    Thanks everyone! So maybe then the dunn paint? Or would it be bay somewhere in the description? He does have a little bit on the tips of his ears.

    Oh good Lord I know why, because I mentioned I was going to put more miles on him and sell him later possibly. Really? This isn't a sell ad, just wanted to know how to describe him. I certainly am not going to sell him till at least summer or fall. He's too green right now. But then after today's ride I'm not so sure now about selling him, I really like him! (like I NEED another horse) He was a boarders horse (the girl in the pic riding him) and she lost her job and signed him over to me.

    The horse is a pinto, not a Paint, unless he is registered APHA. Pinto is a color pattern, Paint is a breed.

    I would say buckskin tobiano pinto.
