I saw the mare last year she hasn't changed at all, and saw the sire 2 years ago he was still a blue roan. But it is possible with all that gray in the background, maybe they are just slow to grey out.

Go Hard Topper is the sire
Rbar Goodyear Sal
I'm thinking that topper must have been grey hiding under the blue roan. I was told his sire was a roan but all breed says he was chestnut. So if that's true he couldnt be a roan

If that's the sire, then yes I do think it's possible he was gray under the roan. See how the tip of his tail is that yellow color? That's usually one of the first signs of gray, especially on a horse who is roan as well because you can always see the graying through the roaning.

I also just looked through your photos and saw the picture of Dunni as a baby and saw how dark his points are. That's another VERY common thing on young grays. especially cream bases.

You know, I automatically thought he appeared to be going grey but I ruled that out with the information the op provided. So I feel it's possible.

Ditto. Grey seems to put a more "mature" color on foal's legs when they are born, rather than the lighter legs. I would not be surprised at all if your colt greys out.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

So a friend of mine saw Topper and he is greying out now. Guess he was just slow to grey. So I will have to wait and see, I will be sure to post more pics after he sheds out.
So because he is grey on creme will he grey out like a " normal" grey? Just wondering what to expect. Could he possibly have a silver gene in their causing this?
