Foals-Before and after colors!

I've just learned from this forum that foals change color. Sometimes drastically! I find this so neat! I love looking at their "before" and "after" pics. Please share them! And what you know about judging what color they will mature into. I can't get enough.

This is my mare and her second foal, Docs Sharp Valentine. This picture was the the same morning she was foaled during the night.

Stand-by for follow-up picture.

ETA: ACK!! I can't find a picture of this filly after she greyed out, but she is by a grey son of Playgun out of Miss Silver Pistol who are both Cutting Horse Champions.

Sorry for double post. ^^^^This is the filly. I made a mistake in description of picture. She did turn a steel grey with black mane and tail.

I've seen a couple different changes, though these are the only ones i have good pictures off.
This is Bullet at 1 day old
Docs Irish Bullet.jpg
This is Him at 2-years
Bullet 08.jpg
Mouse at 3 days old
She didn't change too much, though she darkened up from her "buttermilk" stage & got more of a golden tinge to her. When she was about 2-4 months she was a little smokier & had a dorsal stripe (countershading actually since neither parents were dun)

Image didn't change too much, however when he was born we were all kind of quiet-thinking he was a bay. Everyone had their hearts set on a buckskin. Luckily it became apparent when he dried off that he was indeed our buckskin :)

Fresh from the oven:

Four months old:

Three years old:

Locke is the one of mine that changed the most, but he's just a yearling now, can't wait to see how he looks when he is mature :)
