Question What color is my gelding?

About a month ago I bought a gelding from a kill-pen who my mom presumes is a 4 year old quarter horse. I love him with all of my heart, but I am curious what color he will turn out to be. He is a very light grey, with chocolate dapples and legs. Will he turn white over time? Is he truly a grey?

He is too far along in the greying process to know what his base color is without testing. Since he is grey, he will continue to lighten, but how white vs fleabitten he will be is anybody's guess at this point.

Lucky boy to be pulled from the killer and have a chance to live long enough to find out!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Definitely grey. Can't reliably tell a base colour from those.
