I would love to get a foal this color ( grey body with black mane and tale), I am breeding my bay arabian/morgan to a grey arabian stud. I was just wondering if this would be a possible color and what other colors where possible, also, if it is not, what are the best combos to get this color combo.
Well, individuals gray out differently. You never know if the mane and tail will stay dark longer or gray out along with the rest of the body hair. Eventually, they all end up white, then usually flea bit.
Colleen's right. There are lots of articles about this subject. My arabian mare at age 3 was very dark grey and had a totally black mane and tail. Now, at age 10, she's very light grey, dappled, and has a little greying of her mane and tail. In time, I suppose she'll be lighter still. So a grey never stays the same throughout life. They're still very pretty no matter what, though!
I have a friend with a cremmelo stallion he produces Silver dun from greys.
