I will say one main thing I know of. When you are transferring her into your name you may need to have her papers signed by the previous owners or have a proof of purchase agreement signed. I do not know about MFT associations but the Australian QHA you cannot transfer them into your name unless the previous owner has signed and filled out details. Then when I sign the papers you have a spot where you can correct any colors, markings, whorls and brands so that when the horses transfer is complete they send out a fresh copy of the horses papers to you with all details of new ownership and any corrections corrected on it too. You also have to be a current financial member to transfer horses into your name usually as well. Good luck. Can't say much on grey genes other than what people have already said but it's all true. I do not have any greys either as I am trying to breed for color with a palomino grulla and a chestnut so do not want my vibrant colors greying out.

Trailhorserider, your girl looks alot bigger than my little girl! I wish my horse was bigger, but she's got a big heart, and that's all that matters! Thank you everyone for explaining this stuff to me. I can see little peices of evidence that my mare used to be chestnut. The gray dapples on her flanks have a reddish tint to them. And some of the hairs in her mane and tail are red. The long hair on the backs of her legs also have a reddish/maroon tint to them. I'm hoping that she's one of the grays that stay gray or she freckles up. I don't want another solid white horse! Although, at least she'll have black skin and won't sunburn... unlike my maximum white sabino gelding. He'll sunburn in an instant if I don't watch it!

Greys don't sunburn, but they can get melanomas. I haven't experienced this first hand, but I have read that something like 80% of grays will get melanomas. The good news is, they often time don't spread and the horse can life out their normal lifespan with them. I HAVE heard of them spreading/growing though.

Anyway, my girl is fairly large, around 15.1, 1100 lbs. But she sort of has to be, because I weigh around 200 lbs myself and didn't want a horse I would feel to big to ride.

I think my mare used to be black. All her fleabites and a spot on her forehead are black. Black is my favorite horse color and so I will sometimes tell people I finally got my black horse with Isabelle and they look at me all weird.
