I still don't believe it's the same horse.
The photos of the BAY foal were taken in december 2012 and the photos of the GREYING-out chestnut were taken in august 2012. Why would a foal who is clearly greying out in August become a bay in December?
Also, and I may be entirely wrong here (I realise foals often go through a fugly stage) - so I apologise in advance if so, but the bay foal looks to be not nearly the quality of the greying one.
Wonder if photos somehow got muddled - what with so many foals being born....

My guess is it should be December 2011 and then August 2012. Looks like the same horse to me. Takes awhile for them to grey out. Looks to me to have the winter woolies in the first pic.

Looks like she's in Texas. The foal would be shedding out its foal coat around August(hence the second picture) and have a winter coat in December(hence the first picture.) The horse is GROWING. It's gonna go through some ugly phases. Its coat is going to change colors. Heck, Henny went from a buttermilk bucksin to a dark brownskin when his winter coat came in. I'm pretty sure I still have the same pony, unless one of my friends came and stole him during the night

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

The foal in the first pic is a chestnut, just one with darker leg shading.
Foal would need to have black mane and tail to be bay :)

Given that this coat seems to be before the first foal shed and it is adult in colour, it's definitely greying, that is a common sign of a foal greying.

The fluffy pic....can somebody see a swirl down the neck? Little over half way down towards the withers? If it's there, it's the same foal.

I see a graying foal and I see the same foal in both pictures, one with winter woolies the other shedding out it's baby fur. Don't see why you guess assume the OP is lying or got mixed up...

I to see a graying foal. Look at the face. Also I agree same foal. One sheading out their babby fuzzies and the other with winter woollies on. Horses really change collors in the winter time.

I have a bay mare who in the winter almost looks black.
