It is really refreshing to see a breeder with an attitude like yours! I am in awe - you are a star!!! If we had more breeders like you, then we would have far less problems in the horse world - good job!!
Thank you SO much!

I have no input because I'm not well educated in breeding but I do want to say you have yourself a very pretty boy!
Thanks - he thinks so too ...

Pretty sure ACC can show you a palomino going grey, I know I've seen the pics before. They usually get darker before they get lighter.
I have had several people post on other threads I had started smoky blacks and palomino's going grey. Very neat to see!

I have always said that I HATED and had little regard for those who bred for colour and nothing else and that if their offspring werent palomino or buckskin or smoky black no one would want them if they were plain bay or chestnut. To that end, I am breeding for a superior, athletic, correct individual that will have a market regardless of whatever colour it comes out and then if it has a neat colour and / or interesting markings - so much the better, but that is not the sole reason for my pairings - to get "colour"

So this will be one of those foals that "sneaks in under the radar" in future years in the breeding shed, if that is the career path it ends up taking. Buckskin and palomino foals will start popping out of this "grey" horse and will leave people scratching their heads wondering how the heck THAT happened!

But Winner is the absolute best breeding choice I could make for this mare and I have to put his grey colour completely aside in my decision

Make sense?

I kind of dislike that people "breed for colour". When I was looking for a horse online, I kept looking for bays because plain bays are my favourite colour. I did end up with a buckskin though. One of my favourite horses is a big bay mare and I think she's gorgeous.

Winner is absolutely stunning and look at that knee action on both him and his offspring! Your website says he's had a few hunter offspring and I'd love to see them (though I have not doubt in my mind that they are gorgeous).

And are you 100% sure he is HZ grey, because a quick peek at his pedigree showed that both his parents are heterozygous? Haha, yep, that is me clinging to hope of seeing a buckskin sabino by him.

Wow, stunning boy and I love how clean his front legs are over the jumps (not sure if that's the right word but I love a horse that keeps those fronts tucked). I wish I could help you out as far as pictures go but my one gray horse was a buckskin baby that I didn't get until he was 3. He was a very dark gray when I got him though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

You and me both! I am patiently waiting for pictures of them that I can post!

Well - out of about 30-35 offspring that we know about every single one of them has been grey. We havent found a non grey in the bunch, so in our very unscientific manner, we have determined that he is probably HZ grey ...

Me too~! And they all look like they are trying SO hard to jump clean as well!

Wow, he's a hunk! Love the snappy knees on his babies, too.
Hmmm...I'm going to be in Waterford tormorrow, maybe I'll have to stop in and see him in person!

Here's a three-year-old palomino going gray...

All-around Performance Bred Stallion. Pal. Going Gray


It definitely seems like they get darker before they start graying.

How can a palomino going gray have a dark mane and tail? The only reason I can think of is if he was a very sooty palomino to start with?

I am not saying he's not a palomino, I'm just having a hard time picturing him starting out life as a palomino, that's all.

I am interested in learning all about grays and how they turn color. My very first foal is starting to go gray which is really exciting to me!
