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.

Hrm, sorry, that picture looked better as a thumbnail on my computer - have another
Her face & body are very white/grey, but there are some red hairs on her shoulders & haunches. I'm curious to see how she changes as she ages (she's only four)

This is Domino, my friend's flea bitten TWH gelding. I couldn't find any pictures of when she first got him and he was a beautiful dapple grey :/ but the 2nd pic is his sire, Silver Design, whose coloring is similar to what Domino used to look like.

This is John, he is my hopefully soon to be lease horse. I thought he was just grey before I saw him in person but turns out her is super fleabitten. I think he is a pretty boy though.
