I am less inclined to think she will grey out looking at that photo.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I'd say just watch her over the years. some horses tend to go lighter and darker

I'm with Chiilaa. I'm pretty sure she will grey out. Her tail is the biggest indicator for me.

As for testing. Sure you can test her! both UC Davis has a test for both, and Animal genetics just a test for grey.

Still looks bay roan to me, of course she's young and may just go gray slowly, but based off those pics and videos she's looking just roan right now.

Well, if I get her (looking good so far)... I am going to send in the hair as soon as I get home ... I am on travel for the next two weeks, so can't finalize anything until then. Anyways, if I get her, I am perfectly willing to pay to find out what she is so I can stop wondering about it.

Thanks for the link to the test, I appreciate it :)
