This is my 10 year old. He's a steel, dappled, red flea bitten grey. Black mane and black and white tail... it seems he's having some issues with the greying process! Hahaha but it makes things rather interesting. When I got him he was a steel grey/dapple grey. I heard usually flea bites don't take over this strongly until they have completely greyed out? But the black mane has me totally thrown off. This year (age 11) he's lost even more dapples and has even more red flea bites but is keepin the black mane.
