Grays are the best!!! Just wish they didn't all have to turn white . . . .
Showed a lovely arab mare that was steel gray with black points the day she died. Now she had faded considerably considering she started out life a solid black from head to toe. (Not a single white mark on her.) I have no idea if her gray just didn't fade fast, or what.

Of course a lot of bays and chestnuts ran fast as well.
As for the melanoma issue, I was just told by a vet who works for my vet that my dapple grey and white now turned "white" Hessen has as much chance of getting melanomas as the all grey horses. The opposite of what the coth experts said about the issue. Now I'm confused. (And while this horse was not fast, Inschallah, the maternal great grandsire of my horse, was pretty cool for a grey from France.)
