But, he was supposed to be some mix of mostly Quarter Horse with some Arabian, and I've been told Andalusians and Lippizzaners are the only ones who change like that, (born black/brown and fade to white or gray). Plus I would think, he was already 8 years old, he should have had his color, but I've been wrong before! :)
Any breed that has grey will do it. The difference is that Lippizaners are all black under the grey coats (mostly anyway) and the foal coats show what they are under it. Grey is like a blanket - the horse is a "real" colour, but the grey eventually just covers it up.
