Sabino and Grulla

Limited Time: Original Painting Is Also For Sale! Visit to purchase!

A small 5″x 7″ watercolor sketch, “Sabino and Grulla” is an illustration of two unusual, yet striking, horse colors. On the left we see the grulla (or grullo) grazing with neck outstretched. Also known as mouse dun or blue dun and caused by the dun gene on a black base coat, this mare shows all the classic grulla traits: black dorsal stripe, zebra marks on her legs, and even a shock of silver in her mane…

On the right and looking to the side is the sabino mare, with lacy white splashes blending into her sorrel base coat. Working on these unusual colors was very fun for me as an artist to show the whole range of the equine pallet!
