When I first got Casper he was a steel colored dapple gray with a black mane and tail. He was 5 y/o. He's now 15, and although is pretty much all white at this point, he still has some black hairs in his tail. His mane though, is completely white.

You want to see a gray Arabian? Here's mine. He's Polish, not SE, but you get the idea. Your boy will probably look a lot like mine, except maybe he won't be fleabitten.
I really love that colour. If he turned out like that, I'd be so happy. I never knew horses can go from such a dark colour when they're young to almost white. And what do you mean by SE? I will definitely keep you guys updated on his changes. I started a journal awhile ago but I haven't really updated it lately but for his colours sake, every month or so I'll post a new photo. The one that's in the post is from probably a month or so ago so I'll fix him up and take one tonight and I'll post it here.

SE-Straight Egyptian, which is what horses who are from only Egyptian lines are called.

Yes. All grey horses start out a dark color- be it bay, black, chestnut....etc... And then they start to change to grey.... And end up looking pure white. I will attempt to post pictures later of a few of my foals.

Ahh okay. So I got him all dolled up but when I took the photos in the sun and in the shade they didn't turn out as good as I thought they would but he's got a heck of a lot more grey in him now and his tail has really changed. I never really noticed and I see him every day. Here's a few photos. Sorry if they're not the best.

horselover.. its more than the sway back its called CA . It appears like wobbles or little bit of uncoordinated movement . Don't know when it shows and you can google genetic disease in Egyptian Arabian horses. I have an arab mare SE, good lineage from what I have been told, she is super swayed, and her hind end moves way different from her front end, and its gotten worse as she ages (now 17) . I rescued her , put 300lbs on her and kept her from being someones brood mare. I am still shaking my head that they even bred her , she has many faults.

I don't really understand what you just said, are you saying he has or may have some sort of disease? I don't really know what you mean..

That has got to be the most darling face I have ever seen! I just want to kiss him!

I am onboard w/ Speed on the color. My hunt pony was sold to me as a blue roan and was very much the color of yours. Will try to post pics of him at around 4 and now at 14 when I get to a different computer. This one won't do it for some crazy reason (I get a this page can't be displayed note)

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

For what it's worth, my guy was born a buckskin.

This is what he looked like when I got him at 3 (please excuse the crappy picture, it's the best I have of his color at that time)



And this is what he looks like now, at 11. He does have a fairly large number of fleabites, but they are yellow so they are difficult to see unless you are right up close.



EDITED TO ADD: Here, you can better see his fleabites...and also the bloodmark on his face. Technically it's called a "bloody shoulder mark", but since it's on his head, I just call it a bloodmark. That's where a gray horse has a large concentration of fleabites all gathered together in one spot and makes a little spot of color on their otherwise white body.

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/
