Hair colour and ageing

Can anyone suggest a source for data on the rate at which hair goes white
on experimental animals? Most mammals' hair goes white 'hair-at-a-time'
rather than all hairs fading gradually, and it should be quite easy (if
tedious) to measure the fraction of white hairs on an otherwise
dark-haired mouse or rabbit. Has anyone done this? References?

Thanks.
