Will my Palomino filly turn grey
Have an 18 month old filly, PBA, her dam was a grey arab and her sire is cremello, she was born palomino and is now a light palomino with dirty brown tinge!! but have been told she will probably be grey, what do you all think?

As a foal

Now at 18 months

She is grey. :-) The "googles" that are around her eyes as a foal are a really good indicator.

Do you mean goggles?

If not, can you please explain what you mean by googles?

:rofl: yep I meant goggles. Sorry about that.

Been typing to long today already. *sigh*

So grey she is then!!! How soon will she grey out do you think

Her legs are already changing, but every graying speed varies from horse to horse, so it's not really determinable how soon she'll gray out.

My stepmom's filly was roan-black from the time she was born till she was about six, then she started greying out rapidly and is now almost white in the winter time.

I would've said grey by the foal picture alone, and the older pics confirm it.
