    Gray is not a dilute, it is autosomal dominant - if a horse carries a single copy of the gene for grey it will turn grey and the gene for gray is genetically separate from the other color genes, it doesn't change or modify the base color in a way that will be immediately visible, it eventually covers the base color. There is also no visual way to tell if the horse is heterozygous (1 copy) or homozygous (2 copies) for gray.

    Dilute (creme) is another autosomal dominant gene, but it modifies the base color from the start and there is a difference in colors if the horse is heterozygous or homozygous for the creme gene. The difference in the case of creme is that the color won't change much after the horse gets it's mature coat. If it was born a dilute color (palomino, cremello, buckskin, perlino) then that's the color it will stay.

    It is possible for the horse to carry both gray and creme and if both parents are heterozygous in either case there is statistically a 25% chance of a foal without that gene.

      The grey gene in horses is NOT a dilute gene. It is know as a color modifier. It modifies or changes the color of the coat, it does not dilute the coat color. Colors like buckskin or palomino are dilute genes as they dilute a bay coat into a buckskin coat or a chestnut coat into a palomino coat with the addition of the cream gene.

      It should be pointed out that a solid colored foal out of two grey parents is possible, 25% of the time, only if both parents are heterozygous grey. If one of the parents is a homozygous grey, the foal will be grey 100% of the time.

        You are misinformed. Grey is not a "dilute".

        Never mind. I won't explain since Daventry has provided you with the facts.
