oh ho! Ok so my mare was a varnish then? Interesting. Color and genetics are so fascinating to me.
So you guys think that koda will end up grey and will, at some point, "lose" the spots? That's kinda sad. Do many appys go grey in that way? Having this extra information you've posted, i'd have to say that the majority of appys i've dealt with were varnish with a few more "solid" specimens (as in bay with blanket, etc.).
Eeps! I wish he'd shed the winter fuzz so I can at least see what he looks like now. Do you think if I sent in his pictures as he currently looks (i'll take new ones tomorrow for your review), and marked his paperwork as being grey, that they'd accept it?
