    I'm really anxious to see him change. We've had so many foals born here over my lifetime but this is my first grey. I wish I'd have gotten some up close of his pasterns, they are still very black with white sprinkles. It looks "salt & pepper". I've had a few folks tell me that bays tend to be slower in the greying out process, anyone know if there's any truth to that?
    The two heterozygous greys that I personally know that started as bays, didn't grey out any slower than any other grey. It depends on the individual horse on how quickly they turn grey. Had a filly born midnight black that was still an almost a black horse (other than some a thin spread of white hairs) when she was 3 years old, but at the time she turned 6, she was a very light grey. She was much lighter than even her grey mother. Each of our grey horses went grey at different paces. A light chestnut gelding actually stayed a light rose grey for a very long time before he lost the rose coloring (which isn't very pretty )

    Thanks everyone! He's a pretty good sized boy, his dam is a big mare and his sire is my gpa's little shorty bulldog stud. Dynasty has a history of foals maturing a bit larger than the dam. If that holds true, he should be a pretty good sized fellow as Lacey is a tank. Thanks for the grey info SunnyDraco, I love greys and this is my first go with one, should be fun!

    This is Lacey, 10 yo gd of Peppy San Badger, Doc Tari & Docs Lynx

    And this is Dynasty (I desperately need to get better pics, this one doesn't do him justice at all) 16 yo grandson of Poco Dell and out of a daughter of Due Note
