Evolution of a grey

I thought this might be interesting for some of you to see. This is Riley, my now 2 year old Appaloosa gelding. They aren't the greatest pictures, but they give you an idea of how fast he greyed.

Holy goggles, batman!! That first pic is so cute.

Boy howdy, he did gray out fast. I don't think I've ever seen one go white quite that quickly.

My personal theory has to do with him also having an Appy pattern. The breeder's stallion was grey and ALL of the grey foals that also had a pattern greyed out super fast. The ones that are characteristic, but without an actual pattern did not grey out as fast.

My other gelding Boots also greyed out super fast as well. I'll get some pics of him up as soon as I find them on my photobucket.

Yup, as ND said, Appys with grey do tend to grey out awful quick. Beautiful boy though

Haha...that didn't take long. The heck with all those in between colors greys go through.

Your "other gelding" has obviously never been late to dinner...he is a solid dude...
