Thanks, I won it at a jackpot about 7 yrs back. It's very good quality! The brand is Defender, although I couldn't find one online. Maybe you'll have better luck.

I thought he was headed for white but he is getting fleabites on his face his original chestnut color but still has plenty of grey through his body as well.

My understanding is if the horse goes fleabitten it stays fleabitten and won't go completely white. Now a horse can go completely white and eventually develop fleabites.
She's souds beautiful! I love all gray colors, (especially dark dapples) I don't like the white/fleabitten ones as much, but eventually they all get there, so you gotta love em'. I didn't know that about the fleabites, I'll try to remember that.

I bet he's fun to give baths to! I hope my boy doesn't go white, but if he does I'll love him anyway.

Pretty! I'm especially a fan of the 6 yr old picture. I like all of them really! I'm really excited to see how Shooter will gray out.

I'm guessing he will grey out, however which route he takes is another story.

This was my guy as two year old:





And now as a six year old:





Your guys looks the same colour roughly, so he could go this way. :)
