Foal
I found a double dilute grey online a few years back, I'll see if I can't dig him back up if he's even still standing at stud or anything. They had a big warning on his page that he was a double creme dilute that was heterozygous for grey as well...lol He looked like a normal double dilute...pink skin and blue eyes

Gahhhh. I really hate the grey gene. It's like a giant middle finger to all those people (like myself) who have to deal with white horses and lots of red dirt. XD

I was super excited when my mare had her filly. She was a bright little chesnut, then she shedded out into a daaark chesnut. Then winter came, and I started seeing little grey hairs..sigh. She is really pretty though, when her coat doesn't get sun bleached!

I always thought of the pinto pattern as just bleach. Especially the overo pattern, they look like they got bleach splattered all over them!

Foal
It's very possible to have a buckskin that goes grey. We had one once. She was a buckskin that was going grey. Her mom was a palomino show horse that the neighbor's rascally grey with black base stallion snuck over the fence and got. She was the prettiest thing, actually. One day she looked buckskin and the next you could tell she was grey. Two of my favorite colors.

What would be cool is a cremello foal with blue eyes who turned grey, so instead of the creamy looking mane and white body it would be completely WHITE within a few years with blue eyes.. only annoying thing is telling non horsie people NO he isn't albino!

FWIW, there was another gelding that was gray, but had very large blaze that extended to one eye, making it blue. If you looked close enough, you could see the edges of the blaze. From a distance, he too just appeared to be white.
Yep in the sun my colt looks like a pearl.

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.

I used to have a tovero Paint that had one white ear. I had a lady swear he was deaf because he had a white ear. So I sneaked out there and made a noise. Yes he heard it. No he is not deaf, lol.

Haha, I'm glad that I'm not the only one that just hates gray. That is, by far, my least favorite color of all the horses in the world and after Dobe is gone (hopefully 20+ years from now, but not counting on it), I'll do my ****edest to never own another gray.

To me, it's not so much the color thing, though I do like a horse that picks a color and stays there, it's the melanomas that come along with the gene that really bother me.

Melanomas??? Please explain....

My gray OTTB was almost black two years ago, and look at him now....wonder how long it'll take him to turn white....
