So interesting! Thanks to everyone who posted photos throughout the years.

I have a 9 y/o (as of March 31st this year) FB grey who looks almost entirely white until you get up close and see he's got some fleabitten freckles on his face and neck. I've only seen one photo of him a bit younger under saddle but he looked nearly completely white then too! I guess he must have lost his color pretty early!

My palomino gelding was born completely chestnut then shedded out to an almost cremelo light pally and now is a nice yellow gold palomino who can get very dark gold during the summer.

I hope you don't mind my adding my boy in here since he is a grey/white he is getting a lot more flea bitte.

I don't have quite as many pics but his color from birth until now at 8 years old he is a totally different horse!!


First two pics are him as a foal, when he was halfway greyed out he was about 4 months old, and then the last pic is him last year.

Thank you, he's my baby, lol. I blame all his coloring out on his momma, she is part Percheron. He was my perfect black Appaloosa that I always wanted, lol then he grayed which I knew he would.

wow, copper, I would never believe he was the same horse! He is GORGEOUS! Well, he was gorgeous before....but he is a handsome dude.

Smrobs-LOVED the progesssion pics! I posted about this topic on this forum not too long ago, my thread is probably on this page or the second page now. I really like the 6 year old picture. What a beautiful picture of him being ridden.

Here is a 2 1/2 year old filly. I was told she will grey out eventually...eventually become pure white. I love the color she is now. Anyway, she has the cutest white cowlick under her belly...a good sized swirl of white hair. I always wonder if that is some sort of "sign" about her whiteness to be...

Thanks dirtymartini, I love my boy either way, but I really loved his foal coat.
I love all the pics of the horses, they are all beautiful.

I love the greys! All the photos posted are beautiful.

I swore I would never own a grey horse, then I met Angel. My once in a lifetime TB mare that I sadly left behind in Oz. For anyone who knows their Aussie racehorses she is by Rancho Ruler and out of Heavenly Steps.

All that breeding did nothing for her on the track, but did make for a nice and solidly built TB that took me to many wins and placings in eventing/SJ.

Here she is when she was 4yo:

As a 5yo:

As a 10 yo:
Angel 2006.jpg

At 14 years young:
Angel 2009.jpg

Last Aussie winter just after she turned 15:
Angel 2010.jpg

Still clutching onto those last few dapples!! As for the fleabites, it seems the more her dapples disappeared, the more fleabites appeared.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

He's cute! So his dam is a grey Appaloosa? Sad that she lost her color!

She said the dam was half Percheron... No way she could have been registered ApHC with draft blood.
