will she gray out more?
hi i have a russian / polish arabian mare shes 5years old
her sire was black
and her dam was black that went gray
she was born a black (i wish i had pics)
when i first got her_
will she gray out anymore?
her mom at 13 was still a stealish gray with lighter shades too
She is only five and has lightened that much already? I am guessing she will continue to lighten.
If she looks like that at 5 y/o, she'll most likely be completely gray, with or without fleabites, by the time she's 10 y/o.
A gray horse doesn't keep the steel gray color.
What SR said, except I'm going to go ahead and say she'll end up white with black fleabites before it's all over.
She's also a little skinner than I'd like to see....
We are trying to get her weight back up..the trainer we used really worked her to hard.
we have her on everything possibly without colicing her we just got her back for the 4th time last week
I too think she migh grey out more or who knows she might stay like she is now! :) lol
I think she maybe a little skinny too :( little more groceries maybe?
Her mother could very well have been steel gray at 13 y/o, but your girl is already steel gray at 5, so she's going to gray out faster than her dam.
My gray Arabian gelding was that same color of steel gray as your mare at 5 y/o, and at 13 he's now completely grayed out with fleabites.
A gray horse, no matter how dark, will eventually gray out completely and be white. Doesn't matter if it takes 5 or 20 years, they all gray out.
oh sorry just saw the comment about the trainer working her to hard, she is gorgeous though! :D
