This is a dapple grey Arab or Arabian horse. When a horse’s coat is referred to as “grey,” it actually means that the horse is grey or white. White horses are also called “greys.” Most grey horses are born dark or even black, and then they turn white as they get older.

As they turn white, dapple “blooms” appear on their coat. The horse in this photo is probably younger in age because he still has his dapples.
