Yes grey is dominant, meaning, the horse must have at least one Grey To Grey out.

So it's perfectly normal. Chandy (mare pictured) is not grey.

Here's a better photo of her that wouldn't upload the first time... She goes completely white in the winter and has only really shed out from a pudgy cloud into a golden girl in the last three weeks. :) Also, she's very much a "nanny" horse. Our heifer calved earlier this month and Bailey here is always with the calf (and/or cow). If Ruby (cow) is out grazing without the calf, Bailey hangs back with him. :) I've got some photos of them... that also won't load atm. -- Now I'm not sure if the cow is more QH or the Appy QH is more cow! LOL. :P

I bet as she ages the "mottling" on her face will increase. You're probably seeing the early signs of it. She can't help it! It's in her blood. I love her coloring. She reminds me of a baby my mare Misty had once.

Looks like my pally Sable. She isn't greying out, a true palomino has dark skin underneath their coat (or so the genetic info i've read up on says) here is her in the winter vs summer. I did have her gene tested for the silver gene as palominos that sooty wih dark hairs in their manes and tails can carry the silver gene, but she doesn't. She is just a regular palomino.
