No appaloosa looses it's spots with age unless it carries the greying gene... the spots can 'roan' in an appaloosa but they will not disappear..

The Friesian will end up grey (you don't get 'white' horses), his mum carried the 'grey' gene which then got passed onto him, each year he gets lighter and lighter, just like a grey horse would, but with him his spots get lighter and lighter and eventually it's highly likely his spots will disappear completely

Warriors dam was/is a grey Appaloosa. That is where he received the grey gene from. Which is a pity as his color was so pretty as a foal.

Varnish does not roan out spots. Vanrish will roan out any solid area of the coat revealing "holes" aka spots in the pattern that would have been visible if the horse were fully blanketed/"leopard."

Correctamundo...if an Appy's spots color out it is grey - or very, very, old, but rarely will they color out all the way due to old age type greying...in fact I have never seen one grey out all the way due to age...

I meant like 'mouldy' spots in my post :) where some varnishes/roans develop white spots/speckles in there spots which sometimes gets mistaken for greying but its not
