No they won't. Heterzygous horses tend to be fleabitten and homozygous horses tend to NOT get fleabites. Not all horses gray out the same. Some get tons of flea bites and some get NO flea bites.

Some don't even "look" gray at all.


It totally depends.

Grey is a funky gene. This horse is like 17 or 18.

Another question related to grays. Do all turn white? If not, what are the chances she will stay a gray?

No they don't all turn white some turn flea bitten some are darker some are lighter. Or in the case of the horse pictured above some retain some of thier pigment though that doesn't happen a lot.

Flea bites aside, I want to disagree. All greys will eventually turn white - it's just that sometimes they "beat" the process by dying before that point. If they all lived as long as the greying process took (which can be very individual) then they would all be white when they stopped if that makes sense?

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Oh really? Never thought of it like that, but it makes sense.
