Talking Dapple Gray Owners!

What color was your dapple gray born as? I don't know my horse's history, but I believe he may have been born chestnut as he has some brown hairs around his hips and one silver dollar sized brown spot on his side. But that's just my assumption. I'm curious to hear about other people's dapple grays!

From what I can see in your avatar, very small, since im on my cell, he looks like he has a black mane and tail, or had, lol. So he was born bay.
Just like mine

Most greys that are born a paler colour will actually darken up in the mane and tail before they grey out. Here is a palomino going grey, showing the progression.

You're the color expert, but I see the Pali still has a red tinge all over the body, the OP's horse, again, from what I see, not.....I'm going from what my grays looked like, all born bay or dark bay. The dark bay turned into steel gray, the other three dappled, the only one I assume was born chestnut(got him as a two year old), never dappled and his mane was lighter than the body. Hmmmm....

I have never had a dapple grey. I did have a grey TB, he was very slightly dappled on his legs, who was born a brown. I don't have pictures of him though, which is a bit horrible since he was my heart horse

All gray horses are born a base color, sorrel, bay, black etc. My mare was born bay, and turned gray.
