Vets are definitely not trained in exact coloring, at least to the point some of us would expect. Haha

My mare has faux white markings all the time, but was born only with a star. At this point in time she looks to have a full stocking and it is as black as can be underneath. Grey is SO tricky marking wise. At times she looks like she has a sock as well.

This is why greys are so interesting: so much variety! Some of them get called white since they look white, yet others look almost dun! I love greys!

I would like to point out that the star may be really small, and not quite have pink skin under it . Is BARELY pink and you can barely tell there is a snip on his face in the summer because it gets so dark.

But in the winter its definitely noticeable

Im pretty sure his skin under there isn't a giant patch of pink, I think its a few freckly pink spots that makes it hard to notice sometimes. Maybe that's whats going on?
