^^^Agreed. He looks to me to be the same color as my colt when he was born. My colt is black (fading black) now, he was that same soft mousy gray when he was born.

Whatever color he is, congrats on your new arrival! He's very cute!

Grulla/grullo is just a black horse w/ the dun gene.

Honestly, he looks like a black. But he may go bay, too.
Handsome little fella! Sure took after his momma when it comes to markings! :)

I just had a new foal on the 30th. The mare is a bay TB and the Dad is a Palamino QH. Baby came out Buck skin. The cutest dam thing ever. What are the odds on that.

Pretty high actually, he got cream and agouti from the sire, and black base from the dam.

FOAL COLORS: Photos of newborn foals to help identify color

He looks alot like these I'd say he'll be black.

Black TBs are extremely rare.

Foal coat color is notoriously misleading. It used to be a nightmare sending in registration documents when I worked on a breeding farm. Best practice, if you need to know right away, is to clip a patch of hair on his neck and see what color the undercoat is. With a pale foal coat like that; he may also have markings on his legs that aren't visible yet - you can wet the coat on the legs to check for markings.

Of course, the really sensible thing to do, if you don't want to have a full scale foal rodeo with clippers and a wash bucket, is to just wait and see.

Based on genetics and foal coat color; I'm betting on bay.
