Well, it's not really an arabian thing, all grey horses 'white out,' it's just a matter of how long the horse stays in a certain stage of greying- but arabians seem to do it a LOT faster than other breeds! My arabian is 6 and, although his mane and tail is still black, he's getting really light in the body, although he's still greyish colored. I know someone who has a 9 or 10 year old hanoverian who is still covered in dapples, he's very beautiful. But most arabians I see seem to go pretty much completely white at a very early age!
Congratulations!!!!! Make sure to snap quite a few pictures to share with us!!
