What's the possibility that she's a brownskin turning gray? Since we don't know if the Sire was gray or not.

The reason I ask is because she looks exactly like a yearling I had that was turning gray.

That was actually something I was quite concerned with as well. That was a minor considered possibility...that she's not quite roan at all, but instead turning gray. We first thought we had solved the mystery about who her sire was, and narrowed it out to be an appy..... and at that time I thought I could see a blanket forming, and we were curious if she'd turn gray..but then we realized her father couldn't be the appy we thought it was based on the colors she's turning out to be. If her father was the appaloosa we thought, she'd have to be sorrel, or bay. Period. And this past summer, she definitely started lightening you have any more pictures of your little guy that turned grey?

I don't have many pictures on my work computer, I'll have to wait till I get home. He was born black and grayed very quickly. He's lightening more and more.

The first one is a March 2012 pic so he still has some of his winter coat (which was lighter then his summer coat.) I believe the 2nd is around May or June. He was a bit darker. He's no longer mine, but I can pull some recent pictures off facebook. The current owner sent me one of him chasing other horses with a lung whip.

Oh dear lol, sounds like he has a similar personality too. And if you could get some more recent pictures, I'd be really interested to see them. Color doesn't entirely matter, but I'm incredibly curious, and if she is going to turn grey...I wanna have time to prepare lol

Yeah, I'm going to guess brownskin roan or brownskin with grey.. But it's more likely brownskin roan

If the sire was an Appy, any chance we're seeing varnish up to it's usual games here? I don't see grey either, I see either standard or varnish roan.

There's the fun in it all.. I've had someone look at her and tell me appaloosa. I've had someone tell me her face looks thoroughbred. If her sire was the appy we initially thought.. It was a registered solid bay. If it wasn't him.. Which based on the color she is.. Genetics I believe says he can't be.. Her sire could be anything on four legs. As my mare was likely bred at the auction house feed lot.. So any guess could be possible. We call her the rainbow horse.
