Weird mane colors

I have a grey mare and was wondering how/why her mane is the color that it is. She is a grey horse with a multi-colored mane and tail, but her tail fades into white.

She has grey, brown, black, white and some other colors in her mane but she is just a grey.

Also, do you think her hair will eventually white out??

I have a grey too, he was mostly dark grey, when I got him. He is now all white with red freckles on his neck. His mane & tail went all white too.

Her mane and tail may get lighter. They may not. Only time will tell. I know a 12 year old mare whose body is nearly completely white with very few fleabites but has a very dark silver mane and tail. *shrug* Gray is silly.

Sorry, she won't. She has actually grayed out faster than my two grey horses. She's going to be a light one, grey never stops for a rest!:P
