Hi Lisa. Sam here. My friend bought a gray 12 year old ex-racehorse(tho'bred) from racecourse. Here are the pics. I would like to confirm from you whether she has a dull coat or not?

It is hard to tell from the picture. A healthy coat will shine, and your friend can help with that by making sure the horse gets proper nutrition and has good weigh on it.  Brushing regularly will also help to bring the natural oils out which will give the coat shine.
