I am not sure if it applies in all breeds, but my experience has been that a grey horse doesn't stay grey. When they are small, just a few months old, they look like a kind of dark mousey color. By the time they are two or three you start seeing the grey coming through. They shed out lighter and lighter every year. Our Arabian was a dark rosy grey when we got him as a three year old. By the time he was eight, he was almost white. In my mind, when I see a white horse, I assume it is more than 10 years old and more than likely, especially for carriage horses, will have been well trained and have a few years experience. That is just my opinion though.
