Is this filly just greying out?

Half Arabian Filly

Was perusing CL (terrible I know) and I saw this filly. I am just curious if she is greying out or ?

EDIT: just noticed at the bottom of the ad it says she is all grey

Huh. If she is graying out, she's doing it awful quick. I expect she'll be completely white by the time she's 2.

I've heard that the combination of the LP gene and the gray gene leads to prematurely white horses. BUT, that's just what I've heard.

Yeah - the LP gene does some funky stuff. Seeing the photo I think its LP + Grey and not "just" grey.

Yep with Cat there. LP + Grey = Super accelerated greying process.

Haha...that is pretty funny. Greying normally moves from front to back and Appy "roaning" normally moves from back to front - if anyone questions that, just look at this filly...
