So is the year of the horse Bruticus the same as the one at TRU with Grimlock included?

No silly, that's the original art used for that set, it's no new release. The "Year of the Horse" refers to Optimus Prime only.

It looks like the artwork for Bruticus is backwards like a reverse negative.

The correct term is "mirrored", and you're right in that aspect.
