She is only five and has lightened that much already? I am guessing she will continue to lighten.

If she looks like that at 5 y/o, she'll most likely be completely gray, with or without fleabites, by the time she's 10 y/o.

A gray horse doesn't keep the steel gray color.

What SR said, except I'm going to go ahead and say she'll end up white with black fleabites before it's all over.

She's also a little skinner than I'd like to see....

ma'ma i'm not trying to start anything but I found a pic of what her mom looks like if you would like to see (it is not her mom as the breeder will not send me any pics as I bought val for 50$)
We are trying to get her weight back up..the trainer we used really worked her to hard.
We have her on everything possibly without colicing her we just got her back for the 4th time last week

Her mother could very well have been steel gray at 13 y/o, but your girl is already steel gray at 5, so she's going to gray out faster than her dam.

My gray Arabian gelding was that same color of steel gray as your mare at 5 y/o, and at 13 he's now completely grayed out with fleabites.

A gray horse, no matter how dark, will eventually gray out completely and be white. Doesn't matter if it takes 5 or 20 years, they all gray out.
