    Default Greying out

    I'm completely fascinated with the process of colour change that greys go through as they mature, but I can't seem to find any photos of the process for the same horse to get an idea of how the colour changes over time.

    If anyone can provide them, I'd be really interested to see any photos from foal through to adulthood or youngster to golden oldie with an idea of age at each colour stage

    HashRouge will have some of Lou I would think!
    I've seen a few but they aren't mine and thus don't really have a progress of pics!

    Troy has changed loads RS!

    My pony isn't the easiest to tell, just because he has quite a lot of fleabitten/rose in him and therefore looks very different winter/summer. In more recent years the biggest changes have been in his legs greying out and his mane. I will try and do a vague timeline:

    As a yearling/2yo in America


    When he was in England (roughly 4-7yo)




    When I first had him (roughly as a 9yr old)


    Roughly 10yrs old


    Roughly 11yrs old


    Roughly 12yrs old


    Roughly 13 years old



    Roughly 14 years old


    Roughly 15 years old



    At nearly 16 years old



    At 16



    Slightly heightened colour by the photographer here



    At 17 years old



    It's funny to go through old pics, most of the first pics I have are just cute pics as he was rubbish ridden, now he mostly looks better ridden so many less photos of just 'him'!

    Moo is a good example of greying out and I can only see his colour when wet or clipped. He is now 6














    And when clipped

    Moo doesn't even look like the same pony!

    In way it seems like he hasn't changed much in the time I've had him but he has really. He's much more fleabitten in the summer than he ever used to be too!
