I would say 100%, without a doubt, gray.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I would say gray also .. could be gray on blue roan, but the result is the same .. she's gray.

She's very cute!

I really liked this mare and let them know that but that she was grey and they literally freaked out on me just because she's "papered" blue roan. I don't think I even see roan UNDER the grey.

The papers are only as good as the person who fills out the form. I have a BROWN gelding registered as blue roan. They "thought he would roan and he never did".

I know, people are dense. It's not like AQHA is that good with colors or actually checks. I told the owners they could email me and apologize when she's blatantly grey in a year or two.

That's kind of what I thought. I wish I was there to see their faces when she's so obviously a grey they feel like a jerk for calling me names and swearing 50,000 people would call her blue roan. *rolls eyes*

Well, it is nice to know that it's not just my area of the boondocks that "gray" and "blue roan" are interchangeable until the horse is about 6 or 7 .

I went to their website. I suspect the intellectual horse knowledge of any breeder that thinks how a horse is built is their Confirmation.
