My guess is just like everyone else's. Gray (:

We had a Saddlebred mare who looked just like a Bay. When she got a little bit older she started dappling out. It was weird because she was the color of a Bay but had light faded dapples coming through. We sadly sold her, but since then she has become a Grey (:

The tail is a trait of a Grey. Greys are born black, but as they age, they get lighter and lighter.

Personally I like when they're young. They have grey and still some black but some even look blue. (:

Not all greys are born black. In fact, greys can be born any colour.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

But only depending on the color genes present in that horse.

9 out of 10 I have met have been born jet black.

All that means is that 9 of of the 10 horses you met would have been black without the grey modifier. Grey can and does cover every color out there.

Shoot, my guy was a buckskin before he grayed out.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
