From the look of things, Ashado20 is showing signs of that she will turn grey. The farm staff captured some recent close-up photos and she is exhibiting some grey around her eyes and has grey hairs throughout her coat. These are early indications that she will turn grey.
The grey gene causes progressive depigmentation of the hair. Horses that inherit this progressive grey gene can be born any color, then begin to gradually show white and grey hairs mixed with the color throughout the body. Usually the first signs of grey hair can be found on the head, particularly around the eyes.
