He is still quite dark around his eyes, usually that's the first place to start greying, but not always.

A friend of mine had a palomino who turned gray, but he got very dark gray before he went white. Very strange! When I met him he had a very dark gray mane and tail, and dark dapples along his haunches and shoulders. He is now white.

Is either his sire or dam grey?

CLaPorte - if you read the OP you would see that there is a 50% chance the horse in question is grey...

HaHa. Since we are on the 2nd page and the post number is #11, I just glanced at it and it looked like #1. HaHaHa.

Looks like a really light palomino ........our girl goes white in the winter and then sheds out a very light yellow.

So he has gotten darker as the weeks roll by. It's so exciting to go out, take pictures and see the changes. I sprayed him down to get all of the dirt off and was so surprised to see how dark he has gotten. The last picture is of his upper coat. The upper coat seems to be turning more cream along with his face and the lower half, legs and belly, seems to be getting darker. The underside of his tail has gotten a little more black like his mommas (Buckskin Tobiano).

Just out of curiosity, do you have any pictures of him from last summer?

He looks like he's going grey to me. We owned a palomino filly many years ago that as a weanling, looked like a true golden palomino but as she got older (started around a year old) you could see grey hairs coming through her coat. By the time she was two, you could definitely tell she was going grey. Does your boy have one grey parent?

He's gorgeous either way!! Although a lot of people shy away from greys, I personally love them! If he does go grey, he will be a stunning rose grey since he's a palomino and as he gets older, he will turn lighter in colour, almost white (as all greys do).
