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.
There is no way to know how your horse is going to grey. Apache actually went rose, darkened to steal and then lightened back up hitting the dapple stage for just a small amount of time. Now he is in just some strange inbetween stage that really doesn't have a name that I'm aware of. 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.
We had an Arab, that was exactly his color when we got him as a 2 yr old. Who, gradually lightened to a white, no dapples, no flea bitten, just white.
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.
