Grey and cream

I was thinking earlier, was looking at some pedigrees and wondered this. Is it possible for a cremello horse to go grey? I would think so but it's probably just not common. Anyone ever seen an example of it? I just wonder if the horse would become noticeably different as it ages.

Yes, gray covers any and all colors. Someone asked a while ago and I can't remember who found pictures. I'll try to either dig that up or go find other pictures.

ETA: Found one. Took a bit of googling (and stumbling upon a Yahoo question asking why you can't breed a cremello to a gray and the top answer was a very drawn out "because OLWS" *snort*) and the pictures aren't fantastic, but this is all I've found so far:

Essentially, I imagined they would only look different grayed out because their skin will be pink.

Thanks all. I figured it was possible, just never seen one or thought about it. Guess there's really no noticeable difference.

I bet the tone of the coat would change- my cremello has a very light gold hue to his coat, which is most obvious after a bath between the so-wet-the-pink-skin-is-showing-through phase and dry. Gone gray, I don't think the gold tones would be preserved, but that would be a very subtle difference
