The world of horses is full of brilliant colors and coat patterns in endless combinations! This beautiful horse is a shining example of a grullo Pinto. The grullo coat color is in the dun family of colors, and is created when a dun gene dilutes the black gene. This results in a distinct smoky-grey coat that is often referred to as "mouse-colored." The coat will also feature dun characteristics such as a dorsal stripe, zebra stripes on the legs, and striping on the withers.

In the American Pinto Horse Association, there are two recognized coat patterns: tobiano and overo. This grullo is displaying the overo coat pattern, which means the horse appears to be mostly colored with white markings. These markings rarely cross the back and are usually located on the horse's side and spread towards the rump or neck. A tobiano pattern appears to be a white coat with large, often overlapping areas of color.
