Rose, my Appendix mare, passed away a week ago when trying to give birth to her foal. I had been wanting to ask a color question about her, but never found the time. Now that she is gone, it's not the important, but I was still curious. I thought I would at least see what everyone thought.
Okay, I know that Rose was a grey. That was pretty obvious. And I have seen bay, chestnut, and black go grey. But can any color horse go grey? I ask this because on her vet papers from when she was born, they said that she was born grulla with a star on her forehead. Have you ever heard of a grulla going grey? I have looked online everywhere and I haven't seen any example of it, but I may just be over looking it. Or, the vet may have not had any idea what he was talking about. Because on the next set of vet papers, when she was a year old, said she was grey, but she still had her star. At 2 years old, she didn't have a star anymore on the papers, and was listed as grey. (all three of these were from different vets as she had been moved all over the country).
I have attached a few pictures to get an idea of what color she was. She has started to lighten up, to the point where her barrel was almost white when she passed away.
This was when I first got her, in December.
And these were in March/April
