    Nokota there are indicators for grey that that filly is lacking.
    How can you tell for sure from one photo? Simply by the leg color? That was my guess, but I wouldn't say for sure because I'm not that confident.

    Oh yeah true. And I'll post one more of mine as a yearling, taken in summer.

    Only way I can tell on mine in that pic is the random white hairs around, and not in, her blaze.

    Ah, now I understand. Just because the foal has a gray mother, it doesnt mean she was passed a copy of the gray gene. But if she did, it will cover her grullaness. I was confused about the 50/50% and the "gray always covers", but now I know there was a 50/50 change she got it, and if she did, she will be gray! Thanks for your help guys! I kind of thought if there was a gray parent, the baby would be gray, no matter what.

    I am not buying the filly no matter what, I was just curious! You guys are awesome!

    Yup, that sounds about right!

    My guy has funny white hairs on his face too. But mainly just on one side. It's really weird looking because one side of his face has a lot of white and the other doesn't.

    And the white in his tail is a giveaway that he will turn grey
