Will She Grey?

We bought two pregnant mares from a feedlot. Sire is unknown. This filly is a week old and while she is darker and seemingly solid black compared to her mares brown. She does have white/grey hair in her ears and a somewhat silver shimmer to her coat. I don't see any grey eyelashes

Black foals can be some of

Black foals can be some of the hardest to tell.  Although, black foals are usually born a "mousy" color they can be born as dark as this filly without gray being involved.  My gut is telling me she won't gray however, I could easily be wrong.  There is just no way to tell without testing or waiting to see.
