I agree that grays are wonderful, but I dislike the fact that they all end up pretty much white. I have a grey paint that is now almost solid white. The only time you can see his markings is when he's wet.

(If you want pics, he's under "Dragon" in my barn)

Greys are all right. I love rose greys.

I agree, gray horses are very pretty. I have been a sucker for them for as long as I can remember. :) Especially Dapple grays. My qh mare Bella is Dapple gray. It is sad to me though that she is getting lighter every year. :( I wish I could just "freeze" her in that color shade lol.

I love Greys! :) I have a flea-bitten arabian gelding and I love his color, but over the last two years i've had him. I've noticed that his dream is to be Black Beauty lol that's probably the only "con" about being a grey horse owner. :)

Story is quite dark in the summer (this is a photo the lady I bought her from gave her to me- I haven't got to see her summer coat yet- I am so excited!)

And this is her in the winter! (I am glad she keeps her dark mane)

Take a lot of pics now Story.... she'll more than likely look VERY different from year to year. Lol. If you look under my pics you can see my Bella.... those were taken this past spring and she is already whiter now. Too bad we don't know how to freeze their color in time!

Grays used to be my least favorite color. In fact I used to claim I would never own a gray. But then...our nurse mare orphan foal who was a beautiful chestnut tobiano started to go gray. He is my husband's horse, but who can say they hate this sight in their pasture?

Wow Cat, another paint in disguise! Mine was born chestnut and white, shed out to steel grey and white, and is now just plain old white, with some dapples on his rear and legs. People never believe it's the same horse when they see his baby pics. I didn't put pics before, but here he is, a newborn, a yearling, and his adult color.

Pretty boy! Yup, I also have people that don't believe me. Even when he was a baby - I found one gray eye lash and said I bet he is going to go gray and everyone said I was crazy.

Here is his baby pic. Now that I look at it I can see the light rings around his eyes - not really noticeable in person at the time, but they show up in the pic.

My baby Zane was born solid but when he got his winter coat, he started getting a sprinkling of white hair all over his body, white fuzz on the end of his muzzle, and white hair on the bridge of his nose. I look forward to seeing him change color.

Here he is with his Mom.
