The graying process varies from horse to horse, so there isn't really way to determine how quickly they will change. It is a neat change to watch though, especially if you take pictures once in a while and compare.

grey tobiano, and with the blue eyes...she's got something else going on with it--splash or maybe even frame. I know splash causes blue eyes, and frame is thought by some to be able to cause blue eyes.

I agree with the others that what you're seeing is the first stages of her graying out. She's a pretty little girl. Her eye color strikes me as a bit odd though, they just seem to be a different shade of blue than I am used to seeing on paint horses. Very unique and beautiful though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I think people have an affection for the word 'splash'...

She is a grey Tobiano.

I have a question reguarding her eyes. I've only had her for a week and I notice this yesterday one of her eyes is outlined in black (the actual eye not where eyeliner would go) and the other is white. Do you know what would cause this? It's very odd looking. If you dont see what I'm talkin about I can show you a pic of each eye and u can see

tobiano doesn't cause blue eyes..her base color isn't causing blue eyes. Splash can be easily picked out at times and is often with tobiano. I did say a chance at frame too, as it is not discounted that frame MAY cause blue eyes. Sabino doesn't and Tobiano doesn't.
