Didn't he test positive for grey?

I too am of the belief that Nimr is greying, but it is difficult to see for sure. His colour has changed significantly since you purchased him. You can see the changes in his shade and especially in the facial marking when you compare the photos.

Here is is before you purchased him. Note the clarity of his blaze, and the warm tones to his colour.

Then there are the more recent photos. You will note that his coat definitely has a far more flat, cool tone to it, and his blaze has definitely become far less distinct as he loses the colour in his face.

Greys continue to lighten their whole lives and each does so at a different rate. I have seen pictures of Nimir since he was first put up for sale on craigslist when he was a three year old and IMPO he is for sure getting lighter and lighter, meaning that he is loosing his brindle look pattern...

Different lighting will change the color of any horse. When my qp is photographed indoors with less than great lighting he looks brown and outdoors he's red so that could add the the color changing. I've looked into this horse but he's on OR and I'm in MA the shipping costs would be almost as much as the horse.

The lighting definitely changes his coat. On the bottom pic it was an extremely sunny summer day...with some glare. If I put him in the barn and took a pic his stripes look the same or darker ;) Really guys...this has been kind of a silly debate over the last couple years. Everyone is obviously welcome to their own opinion,but if you try to post your opinion as fact it's nothing but hot air. I am also not selling him FOR his color. His price is the same with or without it. The brindle (that is most likely to stay) is the icing on the cake of an amazing horse. If you really want I'll take new pics of him today and post them :) He is already starting to grow a little winter coat..but his stripes are still clear as day and have never faded or changed whether I have him clipped or normal or in Winter coat,but they are harder to see in winter coat/some lighting.

Because none of us could possible know nearly as much as you. And photography doesn't account for the extreme changes in his colour, sorry.

This picture is in similar light. You can very clearly see that his stripes are a warm colour, in spite of the bright light. You can also very clearly see the definition of his leg marking on his near hind - there is no missing where white starts and stripes stop. You can also see where the other three legs show mimic white, which is above solid black hoof, not above white feet. A clear indication of grey.

Add onto this, you yourself have stated that you think he is grey:

I think you are probably right on the grey. I emailed UC Davis regarding color testing and did not receive a reply. I will try again
I just hope if he IS grey he doesnt lighten.....but I know it is certainly a possibility

You also can't decide if he has been tested as a chimera or not...

Even though Animal Genetics,Inc. Couldnt prove he was or wasnt chimeric based on the sample I sent I really think he is. Just a gut feeling though....

He was 3 in that pic. Obviously 3 year olds keep growing/stretching and their patterns grow/stretch with them. Go look at pics of all the Appy foals...they don't look at all like that when they are older. They still have the EXACT SAME spots,but they have expanded out from growing. Same with the stripes

He HAS been tested for Chimera (twins fusing) As I have stated in many other threads they couldn't confirm OR deny chimera because they didn't see two sets of DNA in the 30 hairs that I sent in...however they said that 2 different DNA's could certainly show up from a different part of his body. I'm not going to pluck my whole horse to find out

They did in fact confirm him as BRINDLE. Which is not always the same as Chimera.

Really? So little research has actually been done on brindles/chimeras that debates about it are fairly pointless. There have also been other grey brindles that didn't loose their stripes. So unless you have a grey brindle that lost all his stripes and completely greyed I'm not sure what evidence/care you have towards it?

And I'm not trying to sound rude. But going in circles with the same people on the same subject that can't currently be proven one way or another just seems pointless.

Yes, I find it not so amusing that a post from 7-6-12 was brought up again on 9-6-12 and then again today on 9-27-12 and all for the sake of someone Else's post from the past that had been put to rest.

Last warning folks, leave it alone.
