Some genetics:

 The glóbrúnt colour is a Ccr gene changing the black or chocolate-brown colour of a horse into glóbrúnt.  This happens to some horses, other black horses can have the Ccr gene without it changing the black/chocolate-brown body colour.

The colour in different languages:

USA: Smoky black.
Dutch: Smoky, zilversmoky.
Swedish: Gulsvart.
