black and greying out

For all those who are into genes and colors..My arab/welsh is greying out! But her mane and tail are jet back with two grey hairs on her tail...do the black tails and manes turn grey as they are greying out or what?

Yes, they'll eventually gray/white out, too.

My fleabitten Arab gelding was a lovely steel gray with a black mane and tail when I first got him. Now he's completely grayed out and his mane and tail are white.

Umm I would look at the parents and see if they have a black mane and tail or not. My horses are most likely going to keep their dark manes because one of the parents has a black mane. I would just go with it by age, Relan is fully white except his mane and tail. I hope your horse keeps the mane black because it turns out to be so gorgeous! :)

I'd like to see pictures of your horse showing that, Kaylee.

If the horse has the graying gene they generally have it everywhere in their hair coat, including the mane and tail.

A horse who grays out only on the body while keeping color in their mane and tail would be an oddity, and very interesting to see.

Here is Relan's Father. He has the black mane and forelock, and the top of his tail is black but the end is white.

How old are these horses, especially the sire?

Looks like your girl is going to be a 'regular' gray, as does her sister.
