    Paints/pinto foals?

    Hello I was wondering, are paints and pintos born with the markings?
    Also, what markings grow or change as a foal gets older? I am an artist and want to get them right, I know greys are normal black or bay and grey out but Id love to know more.

    Greys can be born any color and turn to grey. Pintos are born with their spots but they may crop up with a few freckles as they grow, but the major markings stay the same if there are no other genes at work.

    As stated, pinto markings are present at birth. They're not like dalmatians that are born solid and "grow" markings. Grey horses can be born any color - black, chestnut, bay, palomino, grullo roan tobiano, etc. but obviously they all end up greying out.

    If you look into varnish roan, which a good majority of appaloosa's have, it also changes as the horse gets older. More white appears over time.
