Awe, I don't feel that way at all! Yes, in the winter time they look like a dirty sock, but I love the sleek, clean, summer white horse look. And I ADORE dapple grays.
I have owned 3 grays and two were already flea-bit (almost white) when I got them. My third, my gray mare's baby, was born bay and I was so pleased when I figured out he WAS a gray. That was my first color choice- any color going gray! And I wanted a colt. I got that too! I am excited to see his color change because I have never been able to see that in my own horses before. I hope he goes through a beautiful dappled phase. I know it doesn't last, but that's okay. I just want to enjoy it for a few years.
It's really kind of exciting because he's only 15 months old and has already changed color a couple of times. And he gets whiter by the season.
