Being chimeric would mean his striping is the combo of conjoined twins, correct?

The OP sent hair to DNA-test for grey, and the test was positive.

If he is chimeric, he will have 2 DNA "fingerprints"..... but at least one DNA "fingerprint" tested positive for grey, so at least SOME of him will turn grey.... correct?

I think...but his background is already grey so his darker stripes may stay and his lighter background may continue to get lighter...until he is white with dark grey stripes

His grey test was Gg

How do you pronounce his name again? I hope he doesn't grey out. He's adorable the way he is. How's he doing?

XX Fingers crossed that he's chimeric and only half of him is Gg .

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 just want to add, I think he looks so much better from the pictures I saw of him when you first got him.

He does look like he got grayer though. My fingers are crossed that he doesn't go totally gray!
