Do you think he will grey out?
I recently purchased a 2 yo (june 1st, 2011 is his b-day) registered arabian colt. He is bay, with a couple white socks and a white star. He was/is on the thin side and needs his feet done in a major way. Farrier is coming tomorrow. Anyways, back to my question. He is bay - idk whether he would qualify as wild bay, or just bay - but either way. He has alot of white hairs in his mane, tail, and on his body. Is it possible he will grey out? Or is this just ticking?

Link to his pedigree: Ibn Asmar Ali Arabian

A few pics:

Possible, since his sire is grey. My last filly started with white hair in the tail only, more came in after she turned 2

Does he have white hairs around his eyes? I am going to wager he will not gray out, if there are no white hairs around his eyes!

Pics of the whole horse, especially ones that show the tail would be helpful. Most greys show pale bottom of the tail first. She looks wild bay with sabino ticking at this point.

Here are 2 full body pics.....maybe these will help.
@ greentree - no, no white around eyes.

No grey! I would bet money on it :)

Maybe rabicano? He doesn't have much white for a sabino. :?
