    Yes, I'm asking Kaylee.

    Yes, fleabitten is fairly common among grays, especially Arabians.

    The sire was 13. My girl Relana is 4. Barra is 9. They are Lippy/Andalusian/TB crosses. There are even more the same color. Yes they do get some grey hairs in the mane and tail but they never go fully white.

    Interesting, since Lippizans generally gray out completely.

    Okay,thats what I thought. I rode this grey arab(seems to be a very popular color with arabs). And she was a black fleabitten.

    Yes I know the Lippizans do fully grey out but they have Andalusian and TB in their lines too so I guess that's what makes the colors.

    Yep, they either have black fleabites or brown fleabites. My gelding had the brown ones.

    Seriously though this little filly has come so far!

    I wish I knew her sire.
