It should also be noted that, although grey horses have a higher incidence of melanoma, melanoma is normally a far less serious condition in grey horses than in non-grey horses...

Hmm... Well, I had a few spot red roan appy mare for 10 months. We put zinc on her nose so she wouldn't get sunburn. But she died of abdominal cancer..
And since I've got a grey horse now, this article makes me wonder
