Question My Handsome New Colt!

Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to the forum, but so far I'm lovin it. Everyone is so helpful! Here's my question-I got a TB mare in Jan...she was in foal. Shooter was born on St. Patricks Day and he is gorgeous! I'm wondering though if someone can help me with his color. As you can see by the picture, his dam is a dark bay, and his sire is more of a chestnut. Right now Shooter is grey, what do you think he will shed out to be?

Looks like a bay to me, but can't quite tell from that pic.

If he has some black points coming through on his legs then most likely a bay

Either bay,gray, or grulla.

I'm uploading a different picture of him, but I'm not sure if it will be any better. He has a blk dorsel stripe I don't see any black on his legs. And what is a gruella?

A grulla is this:

A mix of smokey hairs..umm....heres a definition:

Grullo (pronounced "grew-ya" and "grew-yo") is a color of horses in the dun family, characterized by smoky or mouse-colored, unlike a roan which is composed of a mixture of dark and light hairs. A lot of Grullos' ear tips and edging are a darker color and feature Face Masking, which is a face coloring in contrast with the body color. Grullo / Grulla Horses have Leg Barring or Tiger stripes at and above the hock. Same as the Dun, they have a Dorsal Stripe running down the back line.
The world grullo originates from the Spanish word "grulla", which refers to a slate-gray crane. Because of the Spanish origin of the name, some people will refer to a mare as a grulla and a stallion as a grullo.

He may get barring later when he shed out his foal coat.....?
Otherwise either bay or gray.
