Easy - gray.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Those look more like Appy spots. Appy markings sometimes take a while to show up

Have you got a shot of the whole horse? What colour are the parents? Photos of them would possibly be helpful too. Also, photo of foal coat is usually relevant too

no parent photos .. he was a pmu baby came out of Canada. He is Percheron cross with Appy cross with Quarter. He was chocolote color as a baby .. black with no fading up until this summer. He 'spotted' out. He was foaled in 2001. I was told by some Percheron people, that they will do this , some stay the 'roanie' looking and some go gray. With all this talk about agouti etc .. just curious

2001? The way you were talking his ages above I thought he was a much younger horse. That is a bit old to be greying out. Could a sabino type roaming be at work?

And Nakotaheaven - I know you can't rule out appy yet since it does some funky stuff to the coat but I just wanted to point out those type of spots aren't just an appy trait and can be a trait of a greying horse as well. That was all.

The darker areas on the hip and shoulder points generally point more to Appy varnish roaning than just plain grey, but as Chiiilaa said, it is hard to tell without full body pictures...
