7/12/14 Glorious Grays Part 2

7/12/14  Last week featured beautiful gray horses which were foaled prior to 1950.  I had such a good time looking for gray horses, that this topic is going to be stretched out into 3 weeks.  There were just too many gray horses from 1950 to the present to include all in one post.  I sent a few requests to some nice folks about using including current horses and luckily I received an overwhelming positive response, so next week will feature grand gray stallions, some that are currently available at stud. For right now, let's take a look at some mares and show horses.  They are sorted alphabetically rather than by age or family.

This special gelding has been showing in western pleasure for over a decade
