whats really wired though is that this has happened within the past few weeks..... she had a cast on for 2 weeks cuz she cut her back foot open (wrapped in the lovely green vet wrap now) but it has only been in the past 4 weeks that shes turned this grey... the more i brush the greyer she gets...

She is shedding out correct and the the "grey" is around the white areas on her side correct?

In the one picture of her in your barn (same as the one in your avatar), you can see she has some sabino roaning going on around that white spot on her side. You can also see it kind of "smearing" the edges of her whit into the area of color on that side as well.

This is the pictures -

There is no way she is going grey. she does not have a grey parent so cannot be grey.

i agree with NdAppy lol i was thinking Sabino as well. it's happening to my girl, i'll have to get pictures of her today, she's getting more and more white on her as the years go by. but it's from Sabino not roaning or grey.

plus NdAppy is usually always right, she's good with her colors!

Yep, just roaning out a bit. How much will have to be determined after she loses her winter fuzzies because they play havoc on some horse's colors.
