English: Unless a horse is born white because of the influence of other genetic factors, a genetically grey horse will always be born coloured, and will only turn greyer and whiter with age. Horses grey out at different paces and in different ways. Certain breeds grey out very quickly, and some grey foals will express strong indicators of greying beginning from the first coat shed, usually in the form of grey or white rings around the eyes. Some grey foals will only get a few white hairs here and there in the body with the first coat shed, and will turn grey much slower. There are other signs as well, such as a foal being born stark black -- non-grey foals are usually smoky grey-coloured and develop a true black coat after birth.
