    She very well could Face. Phoenix didn't have much more color than this filly and was by a QH stud and out of a grade mare with very, very little varnish roaning.

    Yeah, ND, this one has stray white hairs and spots well outside the blanket - there is no doubt she is a varnish roan. The stray white hairs are a dead giveaway...

    My grey horse was BLACK when he was born and now he's a dapple gray. I wouldn't bet for or against it.

    Kevin the grey gene is completely different from the varnish gene.

    Face - I meant could very well get that colored out. Phoenix's legs are going white this year as well.

    I understand Kevin, but if a grey is born with goggles, which is a marker for grey, you know it is a grey...same with Appy white - in the absence of white hairs outside a blanket, you don't know if it is a varnish until later in life when it does or doesn't start coloring out, but if there are stray white hairs, which is a marker for varnish, you know it's a varnish, just as you would know with a grey. To think an Appy foal with stray white hairs isn't a varnish is like thinking a foal with goggles and a grey parent isn't a grey...

    Ah so - yeah, it's certainly possible she could color out as much as her dam - you never know. It appears that the dam initially had a high blanket to the withers though, so I would expect her to color out more than her filly, but you never know for sure how much they will color out...I've had a couple born solid that didn't even start coloring out till 4 or 5, and they ended up pretty darn colored out when all was said and done...

    Heh heh - you are likely thinking the same thing I am...there is a possiblitly there is a grey gene in the dam's woodpile to boot.

    OP, is either of the dam's sire or dam grey or do you have a pedigree?

    I had a colt who had a very similar look to him, his dam was varish roan. He never roaned out at all.
