As my horse gets older and is graying out more and more, I'm noticing that he's getting some flea bites mixing in with the different shades of gray. This makes me sad. As far as I know, all his ancestors are solid grays. That's what I was hoping for because I'm not a fan of flea-bitten gray. *sigh* It just makes me bummed, but I love him anyway. I know that's petty. :) Posted via Mobile Device
I love grays. I always have. The first horse I ever leased was a flea-bitten gray arab. My dream horse is a rose gray (or a darker gray) arabian gelding. Well, he started out nice and dark gray. I just don't want him to look permanently dirty as a flea-bitten gray. So very sad.
I shouldn't be too upset, though, because he has a full brother that is a month younger and is completely grayed out, but at least he isn't flea-bitten. Posted via Mobile Device
