Walaby - if it has a "white" pattern with corresponding pink skin, the grey color isn't going to make that skin color change. It's just going to take the color and "erase" it from the hairs.

Here's my grey (well except for the mud and grass stains) appy boy. Mom is a grey TB but with only one grey gene so I had a 50/50 chance... and true to my luck I lost. The other pic is him about 2 days old .... such a lovely color... wish it had stayed.

*sigh* nope.. he's making sure I knew I lost from the start. Serves me right for breeding to a grey. I bet a million dollars I could give that mare to someone else and they could breed to the same stallion and get a nice non grey foal... but if I dared to try again I'd still get a grey.

It's too bad that grey suddenly changes his whole ability. I had one person who thought he was perfect... if only he wasn't grey. That's why I laugh when people talk about how color isn't important. If he had remained a dark bay he'd probably be sold by now.

I don't know what is considered "desirable" for an Appy, but I think he's beautiful!
