Unhappy Beautiful Hair turning white :'(

I am so sad my horses beautiful chestnut hair is turning white :( I mean, it is exceptional, because she is 26.
But I miss her 20 year old, chestnut hair! Her hair is quite healthy, just not as beautiful as it has been.
I don't think there is any way to stop it from whitening... ?

Too good to he true??

Just be glad she's gotten to the age where her hair can turn white. Not everyone is as lucky to own a horse who lives a nice, long life.

No, there's nothing you can do. She's an old lady. She's earned those white hairs.

I have a 31 year old chestnut Tennessee Walker and he has long individual gray hairs scattered throughout his mane. I think it very pretty. No different than a person turning gray with age. It is a blessing to have them this old without any major issues and still be able to ride them too. :)
