Does that have anything to do with the with the "melo" gene/ breeding?

I don't know a lot about grey yet... but couldn't that just mean he had a white marking on his nose. Though I have heard they are prone to melanoma cancer.

this is the best (crappy) shot I have of his nose. Sorry if I shouldn't of posted it here, but you can kinda see the pink between his nostirls and it fades out. I have heard the cancer thing. Let's hope not. He's a cool dude.

Looks like he used to have a blaze to me. Keep sunblock on that nose. At least you don't have an almost completely white paint with pink skin all over like me lol.

Yeah you can see the blaze. We've only had him a short time and I wonder what he'll look like in summer. But yeah we plan to sun screen him up. When the sun comes back out if it ever does! So dreary lately. Is that pink nose related to the whole "melo" thing though? We have another grey horse that doesn't show any sign of pink. Just grey.

Nope, that is caused by something different - one of the white patterning (pinto) genes. While grey puts a "white blanket" over the horse's base colour, it leaves the skin grey or black. White markings, as you know, have pink skin underneath them. So what has happened in your horse's case is that the grey has turned him white, which means you can't see the edge of his white markings any more. However, since they had pink skin underneath, you can still see where they are.

Theres a picture missing for the bay with a cream gene- they are buckskin.

Smokey blacks can be the absolutely funkiest colours ever. Morgan Colors- Smoky Black Morgan Horses lots of great pictures :)

Wow! That was horse I either want a perlino (they look fabulous when they are all sweaty ans war horsey! Or a smokey cream!!!) - provided he/she has good breeding/conformation/attitude - all those before color

That was one of the best explanations I have ever seen, and I have book marked this!

Thank you soooo much!!! I really feel like I understand a whole lot better now!!!
